    Windex and a razor blade work great

    I used an old rag soaked in acetone, then windex and paper towels to finish.. probably a good idea not to get the acetone on anything else.

    I tried Googone before the acetone.. it was a no go. Huge mess, and it would have taken hours and several cans to complete the job.

    I had my whole wind sheild tinted on my truck and got a ticket and had to remove it. I used simple green and a razor blade. The simple green turned it into slim basically and as long as I kept it wet it would not stick at all. I would imagine windex would do the same thing.

    Ammonia + a warm day in the sun works well. The goo just melts off.
