The Simple and Clean Way for Bumper Sticker Removal

December 9th, 2016 by

Whether it is you showing support for a cause or candidate, or something else like a parking permit, our car bumpers can see lots of stickers. But, if there comes a time where you would like to have those stickers removed, you don’t want it to leave a sticky mess. That’s why we have some tips on how to remove a bumper sticker and keep a pristine bumper in the process.

  • With a sticker on a bumper, wash the surface where the sticker is located
  • Use a hair dryer on the hot setting to soften the adhesive, working from the center outward toward the edges
  • Take a clastic card, and at an angle on the edge, gently scrape the sticker loose using a sawing motion if necessary
  • If the sticker is not coming off right away, go back to using the hair dryer to further soften it up
  • Once you’ve removed the sticker, wash the surface again, and use the heat from the hair dryer to get off any residue
  • You can also use some bug and tar remover to help get the rest
  • With some detailing spray, cover the area where the sticker was, and use a cotton or microfiber cloth to wipe it off and finish it
  • When trying to take a sticker off the window, you can also use the hair dryer method, but even using a razor blade scraper will work as the glass will be able to withstand it
  • Once you have the sticker off the glass, use some glass cleaner to get the rest of the residue off
