            Removed clear silicon caulk on metal shower stall edges. Took three attempts to get fully clean. First time, I let sit over night and that worked ok. For final two, I left it on for 3 hours. This product worked better than 3M product.

                  I needed to remove old silicone caulking from a shower stall where it was sealing ceramic tile to a polished metal shower door enclosure. I was able to remove most of the silicone from the tile with a razor blade but there was a very thin film that would not come off. In addition, I could not use the razor blade on the metal because it would scratch the surface. No plastic scraping tools would dislodge the silicone.

                  I found this gel on-line and had it shipped to my local store. I applied it and waited three hours (per the directions). The silicone was loosened and I could scrape most of it away with a plastic scraper. I then applied the gel again, waited 24 hours, and scraped away the remainder of the silicone.

                  Please note: this product will not eliminate manual scraping. I was scraping for about an hour after each application. This product works well as long as you expect to use a lot of elbow grease in addition to the gel.

                      In spite of what Tommie from OKC posted, this product works very well. Either Tommie did not apply it properly, or the caulk he was trying to remove was not silicone. I install shower doors for a living. I frequently have to remove silicone caulk from existing showers and tubs. I begin by removing the bulk of the caulk with a razor blade. Next I apply the caulk remover by squirting small amounts on or near the silicone caulk. It's not recommended by the manufacturer, but I use a fingertip to spread the caulk remover evenly over the caulk. Within just a few minutes the caulk is softened, and the caulk and caulk remover can be wiped off with a paper towel.

                      Worked great with a couple applications

                          This product was just what I needed. I had old silicone caulk in a glass shower that had not been applied properly to begin with ( by a "professional" plumber) and the shower leaked so I had to start from scratch. I don't know how I would have gotten the silicone out from between the metal edging and the tile without this product. I did have to apply it a couple of times and the tube I bought did about 10' of caulk area in 2 separate application sessions with about a 1/8"-3/16" bead. It's a strange sort of burgundy colored gel and doesn't stick well but if you just run a bead of it over the silicone and let it sit for several hours (I waited about 5 hours because I had to run out to an appointment), it softens the silicone and makes it much easier to remove. I used an assortment of tools, plastic putty knife, painters 5-in-1, caulk remover tool with a hook, and some sharp utility knives. It's not a piece of cake but it would have been impossible for me to remove the silicone without this product. Thanks McKanica!

                              Does not work. I tried to spread around my tub and the remover would not stay put. I wound up scraping it the old-fashioned way: blood, sweat, and many tears. Not worth buying.
