How to remove car window tint: the not messy, cheap, easy way
Just making sure I understand.1. When you made the instructable you had never done this before 2. When you made the instructable you had not checked if these work3. You don't actually have many mosquitos in your areaIt seems like maybe this wasn't the best thing to make an instructable on. Even more so after the lack of results. At the very least I'd suggest a VERY large disclaimer saying that you've never done this and are just following others' instructions from several years ago on facebook. I'd also suggest that you moderate your claims, such as "uses multiple triggers to attract mosquitos." Instructables that fail to work and get publicity hurt the website.
Fantastically easy. I bought the SteamFast Compact Fabric Steamer for $20 at Walmart. Took less than an hour to do back door windows and rear sides and only two steamer fills of water. I didn't bother with the tunes or booze and had an assistant pulling the tint film while I steamed.
OMG..... what a great time.... Just me locked in the car with a bottle of Crown Royal and my Steamer.. Blasting my favorite tunes, playing the drums on the steering wheel and singing along off key... it was pretty damn easy, takes just about enough time for the Crown to hit your knees when get out of the car cuz you gotta potty... but good thing the bed is not far away from the Driveway. The neighbors REALLY loved it, infact they all called each other so they could stand in the yard across the street and discuss it before sending the weak one over to ask if I was okay. (Of course I pretended I didn't hear him and kept on steaming to the beat of the music.. (I think I need to get out more)
THANK YOU!! You have saved us heaps of time and your advice was a total success. We headed to Bunnings (AUS) this morning to find no "cheap" steamers :-( then off to target we went to find out they haven't been available for at least a year :-( we were beginning to think we would have to drive further across town (probably wait until tomorrow) when I took the chance on the little cheap shop in the centre (like a crazy Clarks or reject shop). He had one left, right up high on a shelf and it looked like it had been used and opened. It was marked at $40.95 and I queried if it had been used and opened then asked if there was a chance of a further discount. $30 later we walked out the new proud owners of the steam cleaner!!! Got home and went straight to work and realised the 2 hours we had painstakingly done in the morning with a razor and methylated spirits (poor job) could of been reduced to 1 hour in total. 1 hour later and we had removed the tint and glue off all 4 car windows and the little side triangle windows at the back. I just wish I had of read your site before beginning this morning and convinced my partner earlier (he nearly wasn't going to let me purchase the steamer). Luckily he has now realised that we can use this steam cleaner for many other purposes and it was a $30 very well spent!!! Thanks again for your site and tips!!!!! Queensland, Australia- 2016
