We moved into an apt that has old sticky contact paper on all the windows on the front porch. I have tried several things to get it off and nothing has worked. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've already smashed one window trying to scrape it off.
Try using a blow dryer to soften the glue so you can razor it off.
You could try wetting it with a spray bottle filled with diluted ammonia or straight white vinegar. Let it sit a bit to loosen the glue and then use a razor blade to scrape it off. This works well for a variety of stickers and sticker glue residue. Finish cleaning with rubbing alcohol to remove any remaining bits of glue.
How do I remove contact paper from windows that have has been on over 5 years?

I removed contact paper on shelves with a hair dryer. I held the corner and turned the dryer on low and worked it off a bit at a time.
