Tinting your vehicle's or home's windows is a task that can save you money and time. You don't have to take your vehicle into a shop or pay a window film installer to come out to your home and do the job. Making a window film application solution is not difficult. All you need is the right soap and a spray bottle. Once mixed, the solution is ready to use and easily recycled.
Things You'll Need
- Latex gloves
- No-tears baby shampoo
- Bottled water
- Pot or sauce pan
- Spray bottle
Pour one quart bottled water into a pot or sauce pan.
Add ¼ teaspoon no-tears baby shampoo to the pot or sauce pan.
Agitate the soap mixture with a spoon.
Open a spray bottle and put the sprayer to the side.
Pour the soap mixture into the spray bottle using a funnel to keep the mixture from spilling.
Place the sprayer back on the bottle and make sure it is on tightly.
Tips & Warnings
- Do not use tap water in your soap mixture---it will leave spots under the window film.
