Removing Tint With Ammonia

Ammonia is dangerous and needs to be treated with respect when being used. When you use it, ensure that you wear a face mask to avoid breathing it in. Also cover vulnerable areas of your car, such as speakers and upholstery.

Using ammonia to remove tint is commonly known as the bag method. You’ll be required to cut a couple of bin bags to the shape of your window. Then, spray the outside of the window with soapy water and place a bin bag on it and smooth it down. Once the vulnerable parts of the car have been covered and you’re wearing a face mask, spray the tint on the inside of the window with ammonia, then place the other bin bag on it while it’s wet.

Leave it in the sun for a few hours to allow the heat to be absorbed and then peel the tint away from one corner while keeping it moist with ammonia. Once finished gently wash down the window.


Removing Tint With a Steamer

This is one of the best ways to remove window tint. The steamer melts away the glue from the tint which allows it to be easier to pull off the window.

The method to this is simple and allows you to remove your window tint without hassle. From the inside of the car window, you’ll need to put the steamer on a corner of the tint until you’re able to peel it away. Peel slowly and ensure that you are also applying steam to the area ahead of where you’re peeling.

Once you have peeled off the tint, wash down the window with warm soapy water to ensure all the adhesive has been removed.


Removing Tint With a Heat Gun

Using a heat gun is very similar to using a steamer. You can either use an actual heat gun or a very powerful hair dryer. The process is the same as the steamer, simply apply heat to a corner of the window tint and then start peeling slowly. If there is any adhesive left on the window, gently wash it off with warm soapy water.
