Which window is messed up?

I use a tint remover spray from Walmarts that works great to remove the sticky stuff. Along with a razor it comes it with no trouble.

We remove window tint almost everyday at work, on inspections, hand cleaner is by far the best thing to use, fast orange, so it smells good afterwards

When i've removed mine a couple of times now, it comes off in one big piece, but it leaves a ton of sticky residue. That's when I use the tint remover and start going to town with a razor. I'm also told ammonia work very well for dissolving the tint adhesive.

It's water soluble adhesive.

That said, if water and dish soap dont get it off, any sort of alcohol will get it off with ease (denatured ethanol, methanol, isopropyl, even high proof liquors).
