A how-to guide in removing your old window tints

Almost every car owner has complete car accessories especially window tints that can ensure longevity of any vehicle out there.

Window tints are made of films in thin layers and are designed to give protection, not only of course to your car and the upholstery inside it but also to people who are riding in and using the wheel, including you. An additional protection from the sun’s harmful rays, window tints also give more privacy to car owners and aesthetics as well. Yet tints can be quite expensive, as you need to remove it every now and then.

Window tint’s life span depends on its quality, how much sunlight was it exposed to, installation processes and how you take care of your car generally. Cheap quality tints are expected to fade faster than those with higher price that are known to be quality ones. Window tinting in Waukesha, for example has varieties of window tints, so you better have to be careful in choosing what to buy, after all, we get what we paid for.

On the other hands, regardless of your budget and what kind of tint you are getting, the time will always come when you have to remove your old tint and replace it with brand new ones, as these tints aren’t one-time buying accessory.

Remember, when you start seeing discoloration and bubbles forming under your tints, it is the right time to hire some professionals to install new ones. But if any case that you cannot get a schedule right away and would like to remove your old tints by yourself, here are some guides you can follow:

  1. Prepare – get some razor blades, dishwashing soap, soft cloth, spray bottle, water and glass cleaner.
  2. Cut – using your razor blade, make a small cut on one of the film’s corner. Be careful to not press on your blade deep and hard to avoid scratching your windows.
  3. Peel – slowly and gently peel the tint from the cut you have made. If you didn’t take it off in one try, get your razor blade again and lift the edge of the remaining tint to peel it again.
  4. Spray – make a mixture from dishwashing soap and water in your spraying bottle and give your windows that soapiness, especially that parts that were exposed to the tints’ adhesive.
  5. Soak – don’t wash your soapy mixture at once. Let it sit for some minutes as it softens the adhesive stains on your windows.
  6. Scrape – carefully remove the remaining adhesives with the help of your blade. Again, be careful on this step.
  7. Wash and clean – after removing all the residue, you can now start cleaning your windows with a glass cleaner and soft cloth.
