Try removing stickers (even tough ones) during/after a rainfall.

Honestly, i have taken the umbrella many times and removed the stickers during rain. Its like using the same energy to remove which would have been used to put it. Its that easy

Would ice work ?
Just thinking aloud. Ice is supposed to work for bubble-gum on clothes.

Actually, why do you want clingfilm ? It doesnt seem to be related to the topic of stickers, though.

Plastic wrap - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Clingfilm, or plastic wrap - as seen from the link above, should be available at bigger departmental stores. This is what is used in our canteens/cafeteria's to cover fruit-lunch dishes. Or to wrap sandwiches. Called so, because it clings to the surface it is in touch with, esp to itself when we wrap a second layer of the film on the contents of the wrap.

Is this what you are looking for ?

Any store which has the food wrapping foil will have cling film too.

Default Glass

I put mine on a 3x6 inch piece of glass and then tape the glass to the windshield with the bottom of the glass sitting on the dash for support. Could do the same with clear plastic, I suppose. When it comes time for a new sticker I soak the old glass. If that does not work, new piece of glass.

Now..why did you have to use a blade..you could try using kerosene to soak the sticker and let it be for 30 mins or so..the stickers - most of it disintegrate.. kerosene is an abrasive and hence can help peel most of the stickers..helping us remove them without resorting to any kind of blade..

This will avoid scratch marks on the glass..

So essentially what you are doing is sticking the sticker on the cling-film and then sticking that on the windscreen solely on the clinginess of the cling film? I haven't worked much with cling film at least not in this capacity, but does it have that much adhesive capacity? Would it not keep falling down? and once you have removed the sticker a few times, isn't the clinginess totally gone?

I have many stickers in a vertical line on the inside LHS of my windshield and now need to remove only 1 of these. What's the best way to do this? I need the other stickers (especially the ones below this one) intact.
