How to Remove Sticker Glue from Car Paint
When it comes to removing stickers from cars, many people may grab either a razor blade or nail polish remover. Though this is helpful if the sticker is attached to the window, using these items when the sticker is attached to car paint can damage your vehicle.
To begin, clean the surface of the bumper sticker to remove any residue, then grab a hair dryer and apply heat to the bumper sticker. Start at the center and gradually move to the edges, as you do so the glue will melt. Once this step is complete, you can take a damp rag and use a detailing spray to remove the sticker and the residue from your vehicle.
