    Amateur. :) Peel sticker while scraping with a razor blade. Give a couple more swipes with the razor, and glass is sparkling clean. If there's any residue left over, a touch of acetone on a bit of paper towel will take care of it.

    Um. For me. When I have sticky residue or pieces of the paper still stuck. I use an eraser until it comes of. It works. You could try it out too.
