Removing Old Contact Paper from Windows

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.

I had the same issue at my last place and I did what Judy recommended with the heat and razor, then cleaned the rest off with cleaning solution and windex.

The best way to do this is with a hair dryer. Heat up the paper and start to remove it little by little.

Now use a can of coke and a sponge to clean off the rest of the sticky residue left behind. Coke works great with a sponge to clean up after the sticky contact paper.
