Window frosting or window film works much like a sticker. It comes stuck to a glossy paper surface from which you peel it off and apply it to a window. Ultraviolet light and normal wear and tear eventually take their effect on window frosting. When the frosting no longer looks good, it's time to remove it. The adhesive may separate from the frosting and stick to the window during the removal process. Although it may take you some extra work to remove the adhesive, overall, the job shouldn't take too long.
