5 Easy Steps to remove a decal
Car decals can sometimes be a pain to remove due to the strong adhesive holding them on to the surface! However follow our 5 easy steps to remove your decals!
Clean the decal or sticker and the area surrounding it. To clean the decals or stickers, you can use soapy water and a cleaning cloth.
Warm it up. To remove the decal, heat it with a hair dryer. It will help to release the adhesive on the back of the decal and allow pulling it up with ease. A hair dryer is the best way to heat it up because it is less powerful than a heat gun and a heat gun could damage your paint if used incorrectly.
Scrape up under the sticker. When the decal or sticker is heated up, you can scrape up under the sticker with a plastic card at an angle and begin to peel it away. You can also use your fingertips to peel it away. Do not use a razor blade or box cutter on a car’s paint because it may damage it.
Use glue removal products carefully. You can use a dab of goo removal applied to a clean microfiber cloth and rub it on the glue residue. Let it stand for one minute to absorb and then remove the residue off with soapy water. It is necessary to repeat this process until the entire glue residue has come off.
The final step is to wash again, dry and wax the whole area to ensure proper removal as well as surface protection.
