to remove 1 from the windshield, get your hairdryer out, heat the decal up and use a razor blade to peel up the edge.....then while using the blowdryer, keep it heated and pull it off.....

on the paint, use your hairdryer, but use your fingernail to pull up the edge.....keep it warm as you pull it off...

use some goo-gone for the adhesive, or any other adhesive remover, but just don't rub too ahrd or you can scratch the paint. On the windshield i have always just used a razor blade and windex

Why do people think its called GOO-BE-GONE? It's GOO-GONE. My fiancee thought it was Goo-be-gone too until I showed her the bottle.

I used goo gone on my back window when some A_hole at work put a sticker on it, and it made the factory tint hazy. I had to use a clay bar to get the haze off. Thought I had ruined it. Is it safe to use on paint?
