    Stripping off the liner:

    Lay the decorative film flat on the table and hold it in your hands with the liner layer facing you. Now slightly and carefully start striping off the liner from its lower end. Do not hold it tightly or the film will roll onto itself. Once the entire liner is removed, thoroughly spray water on the back side of the film that is now being exposed.

    Applying the film:

    Now comes the stage at which you will finally apply the film so spray water on the window glass. Now immediately after this, gently hold the film from the corners and apply it on the window glass by positioning it from the middle. Once it is applied on the window glass, spray water all over it once more. With a squeegee press the film from the center and towards the outer ends to remove any air bubbles.
