What gets Window Tint Glue off?

Some clients of mine tried removing their window tint. Unfortunately, they didn't quite do it correctly. Now there is a bunch of the tint glue still on the windows--they did some of the windows with a heat gun but then let the glue reset on there, and big chunks of tint are still on certain areas. They also scraped some of the tint with a razor, but didn't wet the tint, and got strips of tint off (but the glue underneath is still there). What is best used to get the remaining tint and glue off the windows?

Here are the steps to follow to remove glue from windows:

> Keep a sheet of plastic ready, in the shape of the window
> Spread soapy water on the outside of the windows
> Now, cover the plastic sheet all over the window's soapy surface
> On the inside of the windows, spray undiluted ammonia
> Cover the plastic sheet on the inside of the window
> After an hour or so, remove the plastic gently from the window panes
> If there are still glue remains, pour the remaining ammonia and scrub it off with steel wool
