Default Removing Window Tint Glue

So the other day, i was pulled over because of my tint, and the cop who pulled me over decided to be a douche, and forced me to either rip my tint off right there and then or hes calling in a tow truck to inpound my car. no warning or anything. so i pulled it off on the fronts, i guess cops in my town are starting to crack down on the front windows being tinted. so gay.

But anyway i was wondering if anyone could recommend a product i can use to clean the glue left over from the tint.

I have already tried Goo Be Gone and it didnt work well at all.

any kind of household product, or easily purchasable.
thanks

Be careful with that razor blade though because you can scratch the window.

I heard that razor blades can't scratch your windows, when I took mine off I used a blade and it didnt scratch at all

Yes be careful with the blade because when I took mine off, I had some scratches left but I retinted so you can't seem them anymore. Just let it sit in the sun, spray goo gone, wait a min and start scraping it off.

go to autozone and buy a bottle of "Tint-off" that and razor blades as said will work great. Do not use razor blades on defrost strips on back glass

What I use is steam. I realize that you just have glue left on the glass but you can pickup a steamer for clothing @ wallmart for 15 bucks and steam the glue it then becomes easily removable with a plastic card...old driver licence etc.

What Raz stated, be careful with razors.....they WILL scratch glass unless the razor is stainless steel with light pressure. Thats why tint shops use stainless steel blades to cut patterns on your rear glass as stainless does not cause scratches when used lightly....

thanks for all the info, ended up using a stainless razor blade, and windex worked really well. for some reason the ammonia in it or something would eat at the glue letting it easily separate from the window. just took some time getting 100% of it off.

I bought a steamer last summer for my mother in laws car to remove the back tint. I haven't gotten around to it yet but that was what was recommended due to the defrost strips on the back glass
