Choosing the Best Tinting Installation Solution

When tinting, you have to make sure you have a slippery solution between the glass and the window film.  There are a few ways of achieving this effect, but which one is going to give you the best tint job for you window?

Dish Washing Liquid

Some tinters swear by mixing a few drops of dish washing liquid soap into a spray bottle full of water, and coating the window with the solution.  There are a few drawbacks to this:

  • Dish Washing Liquid is made for disintegrating grease, so the harsh chemicals can wear down the glue,  and keep the window film from sticking properly.
  • Dries fast, often times causing bubbles or streaks in the tint job

    Baby Shampoo

    An alternative to dish washing liquid is baby shampoo.  A lot of the harsh, grease-fighting chemicals in dish washing liquid aren’t found in baby shampoo because of its gentle intended nature.  However, baby shampoo still dries very quickly, and if you try to move the film after it dries, it can cause the film to scratch.  The last thing you want is a scratched film.

    Tint Slime
