How to remove car window tint

Your car may have had its tint for so long that you have already gotten tired of it. Or, maybe, your car’s tint is already peeling off the edges that you prefer to have everything taken off rather than let it stay that way. Try to bring your car to a professional and have them remove the tint of your car. More often than not, they would ask you to pay a significantly more money than you expected to.

As a matter of fact, the prices could range from around $50 up to a whopping $100. Mainly, they claim that removing the car tint would be a difficult task at hand, keeping in mind that they would also be making sure that your car windows do not get any scratches. However, by just knowing what type of tools to use as well as how to do it, you might as well be on your way to saving a great deal of money.

The process is easy. You need a single-edged razor, a clean rag, and an all-purpose spray cleaner. You may also attempt to use other solvents that could work well on removing adhesives but is gentle on your car window and paint. When you have all these handy, start the process by grabbing a corner of the film of the window tint using a razor. Keep in mind that the car tint is not something painted on the glass of your window. It is a specially designed thin film applied to your window.

Once you have successfully grabbed a corner of the film, pull the film off. When the film is out, spray the cleaner on the glass. Then, put back the film on the window and let it stay there for around 15 minutes to 20 minutes. After that, remove the film again. Spray on more cleaner on the glass and use the razor to scrape off any film residue as well as any adhesives. When you have done so, wipe the glass clean using your rag.

On the other hand, if you think that this is not your kind of work and you just feel like you could be damaging your car window, you can check with a local maintenance shop which offers window tint removal. However, just keep in mind that you would have to shed out quite an amount of money for a simple task as removing tint film.
