I need to remove a load of ten year old silicone sealant from two edges
of a bath. It's positively evil stuff which although not hardened, won't
allow me to get an edge up and start peeling (it's very thick with
plenty to get hold of).
The first idea I've come up with is a Stanley blade to remove the bulk,
leaving a thin layer which can then be attacked with a hard edge that
wont cratch the bath, namely a piece of hard plastic or a very blunt
metal scraper. Any marks to be wet-and-dryed out and T-cut.
Obviously this is going to be hugely labour-intensive and I need it done
So is anyone aware of a good technique? Preferably involving some
preparation that I can slap on, leave, and return to find it just peels
Pouring boiling water over it also crossed my mind though I think this
smacks rather too much of deperation.
Then again, I am deperate!
