Last year after Christmas, I bought several of the window cling snowballs that speak. I gave them as presents this year. My Aunt Lois told me she had hers on her table.(?) So I went to put up the one I'd given myself, and it won't stick to anything. Any ideas to save these presents?

I bought one of those last year and put it on the front door. The darn thing kept going off all the time so I took it down. I guess the cold made it act like that, but it was a lost cause, I am afraid. To get it to stick, you might just dampen it a little.

There's always a small piece of clear regular or double-stick Scotch tape, if all else fails.

Geez, I gave this as part of a gift this year. Hope my neighbor doesn't have problems with it.

I use this on the mirror (not window). It works best!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I turned him face down, ran the faucet over the plastic, let him dry about an hour face down, then with still a few drops on the plastic put him on my kitchen window and worked the bubbles out to the edges, and he stuck.

Also take a cotton ball with some rubbing alcohol on it
rub in spot where putting up cling.
also try other side of cling. some were made to only go on one side to glass. Hope this helps as well.
