How to remove window tint using Ammonia (the bag method)

Posted by TintingTools

he bag method as it’s known, uses a bin bag, ammonia and heat from the sun to melt the glue and allow you to remove window film from your car. Ammonia should be used carefully, and you should use a face mask when applying it inside the car. You’ll also need a sunny day for this method to be effective, so consider another method for window tint removal if it’s cloudy and raining (which it probably will be if you are in the UK!).

  • 2 bin bags
  • Ammonia
  • Face mask
  • Soapy water
  • Sunny day
  1. Cut two bin bags to roughly the shape of the window you want to remove the window tint from.
  2. Spray soapy water on the outside of the window, place the bin bag on and smooth it down.
  3. Inside the car, cover any areas around the window (e.g. speakers, upholstery, rear lights) to prevent them being sprayed with ammonia.
  4. Using a face mask, spray the window tint on the inside of the window with ammonia and then cover the inside of the window with the other bin bag while the ammonia is still wet.
  5. Leave for a few hours so it can absorb heat from the sun.
  6. Peel the film away starting at one corner – try to peel it away in one piece. Keep the window tint moist with ammonia as you peel away.
  7. Remove any residue left over using a very fine steel wool and ammonia.
  8. Clean the inside of window with glass cleaner, remove the bin bag from outside and clean too.
