If you're looking for an alternate use for a steamer, it does an amazing job of taking window tint off vehicle windows. My husband drove the same truck for 10+ years, with the same window tint, and not a word was said, but suddenly the cops started giving him a hard time about the window tint supposedly being too dark. >shrug< He dreaded scraping off the film, or (worse) paying someone to do it.
I looked online and found that steamers will make the window tint adhesive release within just a few seconds. He had all the windows tint-free within an hour, no scraping necessary. :-)
So if you need an excuse ... er ... reason to buy a steamer, there ya go! ;-)
