What Is Window Tinting?

Window tinting is the process of applying a thin film to the glass of a car window. The film helps to reduce the amount of sunlight that enters the car. It also blocks out UV rays, which can be harmful to your skin. Tinted windows can make driving in sunny conditions more comfortable and can help keep your car cooler in the summer.

Why Would You Remove Window Tint?

There are a few reasons why you might want to remove the tint from your car windows. Maybe you just don’t like the way it looks. Or, perhaps you’re selling your car and the new owner doesn’t want tinted windows. In some states, there are also laws that regulate how dark a car’s window tint can be. So, if your tint is too dark, you may need to remove it.

How to Remove Window Tint

Now that we’ve answered the question “what is window tinting?” and discussed some of the reasons why you might want to remove it, let’s get into the nitty-gritty of how to remove window tint.

There are a few different ways that you can go about removing window tint, but we’re going to focus on what is probably the most popular method: using a solution of soapy water and vinegar.

You’ll need:

  • A bowl or bucket
  • Distilled white vinegar
  • Liquid dish soap
  • A spray bottle (optional)
  • A razor blade or utility knife
  • Several towels

Percentages Of Window Tinting

The percentage of tint refers to the amount of light that is allowed to pass through the window film. The lower the percentage, the darker the tint. For example, a 50% tint will allow 50% of the available light into the car.

A popular choice for many drivers is to go with a 20% tint. This gives you a good balance between privacy and visibility and is still relatively easy to see out of when it’s sunny outside.

If you live in a particularly sunny climate or do a lot of night driving, you may want to consider a 05% or 15% tint. These tints are much darker but can make it difficult to see out of your windows during daylight hours.

What To Consider Before You Start

Now that you know the basics of window tinting, it’s time to decide if this is a project you want to take on yourself or if you’d prefer to leave it to the professionals. There are a few things you should consider before making your decision:

The type of car you have: some cars are easier to tint than others. If you have a complex curved windshield, for example, it may be best to leave it to the pros.

The tools and materials you need: Window tinting requires special tools and materials that can be difficult (and expensive) to come by. If you don’t already have them, it may be worth it to just hire someone who does.

Your level of experience: If you’ve never tinted a window before, it’s probably not the best idea to start with your car. Tinting is a delicate process and it’s easy to make mistakes that are difficult (and expensive) to fix.


We would like to conclude by saying that, while tinting your car windows may seem like a daunting task, it is definitely possible to do it yourself. However, we recommend taking into consideration the factors we listed above before making a decision. If you have any further questions, feel free to give us a call or stop by our shop!
