Tint residue on my car window.

When I bought my car, it had tinted windows. After awhile, the tint started to detach and roll up, causing the power windows to slow down, so I ripped it off. There is no tint left, but there is a streaky, clear-like residue left on my windows that causes a bad glare at night and in the rain. Any idea how to get it off? Thanks!

I have no idea what cat. to put this question in, sorry!

  • take it to an auto body shop and ask them. don't let them physically touch your car just ask them to take a look and see what they say.

  • You can buy" bug off" that will take the residue off. With film tint you HAVE TO buy a NON ammonia window cleaner or the film WILL peel and bubble on the glass.

  • Actually, a solution of water and a lil laundry soap cleaned mine off! If that doesn't work, try a Mr. Clean magic eraser. They really ARE magic!

  • Googone or alcohol. My SO used to do custom car work. He said alcohol takes it off extremely easy, but some people don't like using it.
