HOW TO: Remove Old Car Window Tint With STEAM! Conair Turbo Extreme Steam Hand Held Steamer

So 2017 Chevy Volt aftermarket car window tint film was failing and started to bubble. I was not able see to through it and needed to re tint it. The tint shop I went to closed down. Tint shops wanted about $150 to remove it and $100 for a new tint. So i decided to DIY this and save money.

So the steam process of removing tint is simple and will take about 1 hour or so for me to do. I done this before with my other cars year ago. Typically car tint lasts about 5 years before it starts bubbling in the rear window.

I used my old Conair Extreme Turbo Hand Held Steamer ( https://amzn.to/2TWJO8L ) as a steamer to melt the adhesive and safety remove the tint from my rear window with defroster lines. I bought Conair Turbo Extreme 2 IN 1 Steamer and Iron ( https://amzn.to/3GotO1X ) , however I didnt want to dirty it with adhesive for my clothing. Secondly, the Conair Extreme Turbo Hand Held Steamer ( https://amzn.to/2TWJO8L ) was easier to handle, was more focused steam area for better control, and steamed very fast. I also used some microfiber towels ( https://amzn.to/3RBGaKa ) to absorb the adhesive on the final cleaning.

Basic Steps:
Work one corner of the tint use the steam to heat the adhesive. I kept the steam 1-2 cm from the window.
In a few seconds the tint will release from the glue.
I pulled one corner and continued to heat and slowly pull the tint away from the glass and defroster lines. You want the steam to release the adhesive, dont force it.
After all the tint is removed. There may be adhesive on the glass.
Wrap the microfiber towel over the hand held steamer and use it to melt and absorb the adhesive.
I had to run to passes to get all the adhesive off.

Overall it took about 1 hour to remove the tint and adhesive. Next time it would probably take 30 mins as I was being very careful.

HOW TO: PRIVACY SCREEN for BALCONY using Faux Ivy Privacy Screens

I got some Faux Ivy privacy screens ( https://amzn.to/3OHSPJP), so I can add some privacy to my balcony as well as hide the ugly white metal rails. With summer here, I wanted to clean up and get my porch and patio ready for guests!

My concrete patio looks grey. I been wanting to make it more green. In addition I wanted to cover up the white metal railings and add more privacy from my neighbors. Another benefit of adding Faux Ivy privacy screens ( https://amzn.to/3OHSPJP) was the added shade from the sun to reduce heat on the patio balcony.

The Faux Ivy privacy screens ( https://amzn.to/3OHSPJP) expanded to 4 x 8 ft panel but can also contract down. The trellis is made of wood sticks and mine had some flowers to make it look different than just green leaves.

I hung my panel with a S hook and then used the provided nylon zip ties to secure it to my railing. I am planning to get another set to place on both sides of the fence to make it denser and so it will cover the railing on both sides.

Overall Faux Ivy privacy screens ( https://amzn.to/3OHSPJP) is a good fast solution to add privacy to the balcony so when I have tea or exercise it its a little more private. I also enjoy the cooling effect from the shade.

HOW TO: Extend Rear Pant Pockets Using a Sewing Machine.

We are going to extend the length of rear pant pockets in this video. New large cell phones no longer fit inside a standard rear pant pocket without sticking out. Womans pant pockets are even smaller! My mom and I will be using my Brother CS7000i Sewing Machine (https://amzn.to/3E7TWfQ ).

Costco has the Weatherproof Vintage Weather-Flex Pants ( https://amzn.to/3QwggqR ) which I loved the fit and stretch. So I bought 5 pairs with a longer length to use the extra length material to extend the rear pockets.

We used about 3 inches to extend 1.5 inches of the rear pocket.
You will need a sewing machine, we use a Brother CS7000i Sewing Machine (https://amzn.to/3E7TWfQ ) for 90% of all our sewing. You will also need a dethreader or thread ripper. Previously we made a How to hem your pants video. I really love my Brother CS7000i Sewing Machine (https://amzn.to/3E7TWfQ ). I use it much more than my Singer 4322 Heavy Duty Sewing Machine ( https://amzn.to/3C8Xjmw ) which we use for heavy materials.

  1. After dethreading inch of the rear pocket, you also need to dethread the hem of the pocket. Be sure to remove all the loose thread.
  2. We measured and cut about 3 inches of material off the leg length
  3. The extension piece was cut to the shape of the pocket to continue the pattern.
  4. We attached the extension onto the rear pocket
  5. We then sewed the the sides and reinforced edge of the pocket.
  6. we finished with heming the pant legs.
