Remove Silicone Caulk

Silicone is a great material to choose for caulking. It is an effective sealant and is commonly used in high moisture areas such as bathrooms, laundries and kitchens in order to prevent water damage, mould and pests.

However, as with any caulking, silicone will eventually wear down and need replacing. Typically, you will need a silicone softening agent, a sharp tool such as a blade or a knife, and a cleaning solution to ensure effective removal. Silicone is not the hardest material to remove, but it is proven to be tough. This is due to the material forming into something called siloxane polymer, which is then combined with other components such as carbon and hydrogen, making it impenetrable, water resistant resistant and tough remove.

The trickiest part or removing silicone caulk is to ensure it does not destroy material it was previously stuck onto. Additionally, the chemicals in softeners can be harmful if comes in contact with the skin.
