Goo Gone’s main purpose is removing stickers and sticker residue. Spray some on your sticker, wait a little bit, and you should have no problem removing the sticker.

4. Ice

Hold an ice pack over the sticker for a few minutes to cool off the adhesive. Then, use a razor blade to remove the sticker.

5. WD-40

Remove as much of the sticker as you can. Then, spray WD-40 on the sticker and let it soak in for a few minutes. Use a damp cloth to wipe off the rest of the sticker.

Is it safe to use a razor blade on my car?

Yes, it is safe to use a razor blade to remove a sticker from your car windshield or window. If you scrape at an angle and the blade isn’t dull, you shouldn’t leave any scratches or marks. On the other hand, you should never use a razor blade on other parts of your vehicle since it can ruin the paint.
