Removing Silicone Caulk Isn't Difficult With the Right Tools
Hello, and welcome to our website about removing silicone caulk.
We plan on having a lot of helpful tips about caulk removal, in addition to other helpful projects around the house.
Before you get started with trying to remove silicone caulk in your bathroom, it’s always a good step to clean off the caulk as much as possible.
Use a standard bathroom cleaner and a rag to remove all the mold, mildew and other “gunk” that can be found on the line of caulk.
Not only will this let you see the caulk better, but it will allow your tools to grip the silicone caulk easier, hopefully speeding up removal.
Removing silicone caulk from hands is tricky, but it can be done.
You’ve just finished up your latest silicone caulk job and stand back to admire your masterpiece.
You place your hands on your hips as you lean back to take in your work, when you find that your hands are stuck to your shirt because you’ve got silicone caulk stuck all over them.
Don’t panic, there are a number of ways that you can try in removing silicone caulk from hands.
Here’s a few steps:
- Rub your hands together quickly to try and scrape up as much as the caulk as possible. Another trick is to grab a plastic bag of the type you get at the grocery store and rub that between your hands.
- Clean off your hands with rubbing alcohol. Rinse under running water afterwards.
- Use a mechanic’s hand cleaning tool, such as Cupran’s Special, to help remove the silicone caulk from your hands. This material is formulated especially to not damage your skin. It’s made of organic materials such as walnut shells that help remove the silicone caulk and other gunk on your hands.
In the end, the main thing that’s going to help get that silicone caulk residue off your hands is simply time. Try to rub your hands together as much as possible to help create friction.
