Reply To: Removing adhesive from Plexiglass


Depending upon the adhesive used on the evidence label, a low surface tension, high dispersion force liquid (AKA canola cooking oil) can be applied to mobilize the adhesive and the oil then cleared from the acrylic windshield with a broad spectrum surfactant (Dawn dish washing soap in water, just as if you were washing dishes)!
