When you get a new vehicle registration sticker or parking pass, you know what that means — it’s time to remove the old one. But peeling those stickers off your car’s windshield can be a pain, and it often leaves behind some pesky residue. Better Homes and Gardens suggests three ways to remove that sticker with supplies you probably have at home. Here’s how to remove that sticker residue for good:
Once your sticker has been removed, try one of these methods to help get rid of lingering residue:
Step 1: Use a spatula to cover the sticker residue with creamy peanut butter.
Step 2: Let the peanut butter sit on the residue until it has a chance to soften.
Step 3: Use a clean rag to wipe off the peanut butter and softened residue.
Step 4: Clean the area with window cleaner and remove any streaking.
Step 1: Soak a whole clean rag with rubbing alcohol.
Step 2: Hold the soaked rag on top of the residue. Leave it there for several minutes to allow the residue to soften, suggests Better Homes and Gardens.
Step 3: Use the alcohol-soaked rag to wipe away the residue.
Step 4: Polish it up. If necessary, clean the area with window cleaner to remove any streaking.
Step 1: Apply the spray lubricant directly onto the sticker residue.
Step 2: Let the spray lubricant sit on the residue for several minutes to soften the adhesive, Better Homes and Gardens says.
Step 3: Use a clean rag to wipe away the spray lubricant and the residue.
Step 4: If necessary, use window cleaner to remove any remaining residue, lubricant or streaking.
