Removing sticker residue
#1
I've removed a number of stickers from the windscreen of my van (ex hire vehicle - stickers denoting speed limits, no smoking, and a QR code with links to emergency contacts for the firm). The last one has been the worst for leaving a lot of residue, the no smoking one left a little. I can't find anything that wants to remove the worst residue at all, are there any folk here who have a good solution?

Brake cleaner usually gets anything like that of.

If the brake cleaner doesn't work [which is basically IPA and normally does the trick] then what about the normal 'sticky stuff remover' that is available, that normally breaks down glue residue, I wouldn't use it on paintwork but as you stated it is on the windscreen it would be fine.

Brake cleaner was one I forgot about, I used it when prepping buses for MOT for removing stickers. I'll try to get hold of some for the weekend and have another bash.

Thanks gentlemen.

Isopropryl alcohol will shift most things.
It is on my to do list.
But not right at the top

Is that better than brake cleaner?

Brake cleaner is basically Isopropyl Alcohol [IPA] with a couple of other cleaners added to the mix.

Probably an ingredient of it
Not in an aerosol it would be cheaper per ml
Have a look on eBay
It leaves no trace of itself so is useful for other things too
I tend to buy in larger volumes from APC for other purposes.

Not sure brake cleaner or carb /injector cleaner
would be paintwork/plastic/rubber friendly?
It is on my to do list.

I've tried to attach a photo of the issue, however, it doesn't want to work. There's only the one bit which is really needing attention. I think if it's liquid cleaner rather than aerosol, then I will apply it from a rag to ensure no drips and damage to the dash.
