General Care & Cleaning Guide
Cleaning your decals is easy and prolongs their life expectancy when done routinely and correctly. We recommend that you clean your decals each time you wash your vehicle, or when there is a build up of dirt or debris on or around the vinyl material.
We recommend using clean, dry, lint-free paper towels and ammonia free glass cleaner. Lightly mist the decal/window with the glass cleaner and carefully wipe the surface with a paper towel, being extremely cautious around the edges of the vinyl. Use another clean, dry piece of paper towel to absorb any remaining moisture.
If there is a build up of dirt or debris around the edges of the vinyl, lightly mist the area and follow the edge of the vinyl with a clean, dry paper towel – don't push the paper towel toward the edge of the vinyl as this may push the dirt or debris underneath the material. Repeat this step as necessary until the dirt and debris is completely removed. Use another clean, dry piece of paper towel to absorb any remaining moisture.
Please Note: Do not use any chemicals besides ammonia free glass cleaner, mild dish soap, or mild car wash soap on or near the vinyl material. We do not recommend using high-pressure/temperature pressure washers or automatic car washes with your decals as they will reduce their life expectancy and/or cause immediate damage.
Although vinyl is a resilient material, it can fail due to a variety of reasons. However, most failures are small and can be easily repaired at home. Most of our decals are intricate and contain small, sharp edges of vinyl. These areas of the design are considered the weak-spots and are the areas most likely to fail. Failure of the vinyl can be caused by, but not limited to, environmental conditions such as acid rain, the use of high-pressure power washers, prolonged and intense UV rays, tree limbs or other objects that can scuff, scrape or damage the decal.
If you notice a piece of your decal is starting to peel away from the window, use an exacto-knife to trim it off. Be extremely careful not to scratch your window with the knife. For large areas that have failed, we encourage you to use your imagination and trim the vinyl in a way that compliments the design (we are more than happy to help with this via email).
