I recently got a new car. New to me anyways. The back windows are sticky on the inside. The very back window looks like something was scraped off of it. I've used window cleaner, soap and water, and vinegar and water. Nothing has worked. Does anyone know what I can use to get it off?
Well, if it is a brand new car as you say I would return the car to the dealer and have his recon department clean the glass.
Try some WD-40 and if that does not work, use a product called "Goof-Of". There is another product that you can buy at home improvement stores to remove gummy substance but I cannot remember the name of it right now. If you ask there, they should know.
It's a used car actually. It was bought from a family acquaintance. I should have stated that. Sorry. I'll try the WD 40 and if it doesn't work I'll try the Goo-off. Thanks.
I have a 2001 F250 with tinted windows. Have tried to clean the windows on the inside, it is VERY difficult! What do you suggest I use to clean the windows? It's flaky, sticky & as I said really hard to clean
Try alcohol or nail polish remover.
Try "Goo-Gone" from the hardware store.
Try WD40 it has worked for me on any stickey residue. then after it gets all the sticky off. Regular window cleaner should finish the job.
May sound weird, but I have used peanut butter to get labels off of jars that wouldn't come off.
I dabbed a small amount of peanut oil from the center of a Central Market peanut butter jar onto a paper towel and applied it to the adhesive on the window. This action loosened the adhesive. Then I used a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water to remove the peanut oil/adhesive from the window. No observed damage to the tint or window.
I purchased a product from Walmart called Ultra Citrus. It smells like oranges and will take off sticky stuff like bumper stickers, etc.
Use lighter fluid (like the kind for zippo lighters) on a very small piece of cotton ball or toilet paper & soak the adhesive & rub. You may have to do this twice, but I've kept lighter fluid in my house for over 30 years. Then clean the spot with good cleaner. My ex used to work for a grocery store & they used this way of getting rid of this kind of thing.
