Removing silicone from glass.
« on: June 07, 2020, 02:40:51 pm »
Someone has bought my old tank but doesn't want the 3d background, when I removed it the silicone is all over the glass, what is the best way of removing it?

    Easiest and quickest way is to scrape it off with a razor blade.

    I wanted to say “or a Stanley blade” (that’s what I’ve used) but at the time I couldn’t imagine one without the knife attached. Lol.
