Hey, you're in the home improvement zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Windows and Components Category

Problem:

Cracking window film.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Spray bottle filled with a mixture of (preferably lukewarm) water and dishwashing detergent; the solution mix ratio should be around 90:10 (90 parts water to 10 parts detergent)

  • Putty knife / window scraper

Solution:

 

So, you find that your window film  is cracking or otherwise peeling off.  Your best bet is to have all of such film on that particular window removed.

Caution: When dealing with sharp objects, such as a power drill, make sure you take precautions; read all product manufacturer instructions.

Removing the cracking window film can be done in a few steps, and here's how:

  1. Spray a mixed solution of water and dishwashing detergent on the cracking film of the window in question, allowing for such to be soaked in by the film for about 15 minutes; then spray another coat of this mixed solution and wait another 15 minutes.

  2. After waiting 15 minutes for the second coat of the mixed solution to be absorbed by the cracking film, use either a putty knife or window scraper to start scraping away at the cracking film, spraying additional coats of the mixed solution as may be necessary to soften up and weaken such film.

  3. Continue to scrape off the cracking film until all of the film on the window is scraped clean from the window.
