How do you get old bumper stickers off of chrome? I heard skin-so-soft works, but I don't want to ruin the finish of the chrome. Will it hurt it any way or have been mislead? Also, the guy I bought my car off of had a for sale sign duct-taped to the window and I need to get the remaining adhesive off. It's old, dry, and hard. I was going to try the old razor blade trick, but I am afraid that I will scratch the glass. Is there some way to get that stuff off?

peel the bumper sticker off as much as possible then use a wax and grease remover like prekleano. thinner would work too but be careful not to get it on your paint. That should take off the glue.

3M also makes a small attachment for your drill that removes all trim and sticker adhesive left behind. Check the Knowledge base for details.

Go to your local Lowe's home improvement store and get a can of "Goof Off". This stuff works on anything including glue. Good Luck!

My experience has been that GOOF OFF is one of the finest problem solvers in the industry, potent stuff-NO Smoking!

It gets dry automotive spray paint out of Stucco!

For the bumper sticker, try putting a rag over it and saturate the rag with hot water. generally, that should lossen the glue and the sticker oughta come off. The glue residue that's left should come off with a rag and a little gas.
As for the window, try the rag and gas...should take it off.
good luck!

wow, you guys have a lot of different ways of doing this. Where can I get the 3M adhiesive cleaner? Do they sell this at sears or a local auto parts store? I might try the gas idea too. Thanks guys, I'll get around to it as soon as ohio gets out of this cold snap! :D

key word "old". Try a "new" razor blade. I have never scratched glass or chrome w/ a new razor blade. Never try to clean glass or chrome w/ a razor blade you havent taken out of the proctor yourself, you never know where its been. Then finish w/ nothing other than "00" steel wool. Just another option you can try.
