How to Remove Stickers on a Car Window Using a Steam Cleaner

Hey everyone, Brian here from Limelight Detailing in Boise, Idaho. Today, I’m excited to share how to remove stickers on a car window, such as the rear window or windshield.

The Process

In removing stickers on a car, we utilize a steam cleaner equipped with a chisel tip, which effectively mimics the action of a razor blade – a standard tool many attempts to use for this task. However, I think the steam cleaner with the chisel tip is a superior choice.

Our primary goal in learning how to remove stickers on a car window is to melt the sticker’s adhesive. Doing so would allow us to peel it off smoothly and in one piece. Avoiding rapid back-and-forth movements that could potentially scratch the glass is crucial.

As I demonstrated in the video above, once the main body of the sticker is removed, there’s often some residue left behind. To tackle this, I switch to a more abrasive tip, specifically a plastic-tipped brush.

Special Note

It’s important to note that metal or brass brushes are a no-go, as they can damage the glass. To create adequate friction between the brush bristles and the glass, I cover the area with a microfiber towel and gently work back and forth over the residue.
