When doing a final apartment clean-out, I discovered a quick and easy solution how to remove adhesive from glass.
What to do About That Sticker Adhesive Stuck on Glass Windows…
I had placed alarm company stickers on all the windows even though we didn’t actually have an alarm system-there’s a bonus security tip for ya! Unfortunately, when I pulled the alarm stickers off the adhesive stayed on the glass. I was bound and determined to get as much of the security deposit back, so I had to figure out a solution how to remove adhesive from glass with very limited supplies.
Use What You Have
Since most of the items had been removed from the apartment already, I only had a few cleaning items at my disposal. A lot of tricks suggest using oil, but I didn’t have oil left in the apartment. What I did have was window cleaner! And for some reason, cotton swabs. It was just the trick to remove the adhesive from the glass windows.
The Shortest Supply List Ever
The only supplies needed are window cleaner, and a cotton swab or paper towel. Well, really anything that will hold the liquid and is lightweight enough to stay put on the glass.
Quick & Easy Directions How to Remove Adhesive from Glass
I soaked the cotton swab in the window cleaner then placed it over the adhesive left on the glass. I let that soak for about 5 minutes then simply wiped it away. No scrubbing required! The adhesive is a little sticky when removing, but all I had to do was pull it off with the swab or really just wipe it again, and it all came off.
Here are some photos I took along the way. I thought this was such an awesome hack I had to share! I’m also proud to have gotten 90% of the security deposit back. Woohoo!
