Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AMW Makes a Rough Job Easier
Silicone is pretty much the worst substance man has ever invented. Useful as a gasket material, I guess, but honestly there are superior caulks available that come off easier. If you were foolish like me and smeared silicone all over something or other, this stuff will make the truly awful job of scraping away at it with a razor blade or whatever into a merely miserable job. It doesn't magically make silicone easily wipe off...but it softens it enough that it can be effectively scraped up if you put elbow grease into it. Its squirts out of the bottle as a thick goop, rather than sprays,,,but this is fine as you need to let a good amount of it sit directly on the silicone for a while to work. Wouldn't want this stuff thin enough to spray...it would just run everywhere rather than stick where its needed. Clean up is easy. My advice though is to simply not use silicone. If you must however, there is this stuff. But you're still going to have a nasty job ahead of you, even with this aid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maryle great for wood floor glue
I had wood floor installed in most of my house and the installers got glue everywhere and did not clean it well. I tried mineral spirits and then Bostik towels with minimal success. This product finally did the job. I have no problem getting the gel to come out and just leave it a few minutes and then easy wipe up. For tougher spots, a little scrubbing action with a toothbrush works. I am now buying my second bottle.

This is a poor product and don't waste your money. It did not foam and the gel is so hard to pray that it go all over the places making a big mess!. Worse, it did nothing to soften or break the old caulking bond. It just make my job worse since now I had to clean up the mess this lousy chemical made.
This product is poorly formulated and the bottle is poorly engineered. I would not call myself a "chemist" if I'm the inventor of this product. What a shame!

not impressed. spray bottle for a gel does not work well for application. found that the product was more effective at ruining the new caulk application than taking of the old caulk. if you do attempt to use, make sure that you thoroughly remove before recaulking

First off, read the directions on the package. Then look at the reviews. People are reviewing a product that they did not use as intended. You need to remove as much of the old caulking before using this. Also, the tooth brush suggestion is for use on fabrics.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by homeowner TERRIBLE STUFF!!!
We bought a new tub from home depot last year. Our contractors made shortcuts and in less than a year, we were stuck with molded caulking around our tub. I was not about to rehire those guys to come back so I decided to remove the caulk and do it myself. Researched online the right methods and products to use and went to Home Depot with my list.
When I got there, the sales associates guided me to this product because that is ALL they carry in store to remove the caulk, Nothing else. So I decided to go for it and get a refund if it didnt work.
Well, it took two days for the caulk to strip some of the caulking and make it come off easier, but the yellow goo has now stained my new tub and eaten away the acrylic in some places. Water based is balogne. We have been trying to scrub it off and still the stain remains. DO NOT BUY!!!!!

I used this product while re doing one bathroom .... easily soften old caulk around sink .... made removal of old caulk around tub simple .... after application I did have to take a putty knife and tap with a small hammer along tub and floor ..... I did find it helpful to leave this product to work a tad longer than recommended ... 5 to 10 min worked well ... good luck ..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Vballer The worst remover ever - I can't give it no stars
The product states just leave on for a few mins then the caulk will come off, first off you need to try to get the liquid on the caulk, but it's super runny... good luck. Then it states just use the back of a tooth brush to scrape it up a bit... umm yeah, try using something like a screw driver or knife to get the caulk off. In some ways I think it would be better to use a knife to get it off, at least it would not smell up your house. I'm going to have to drive 10 miles away to get DAP, a much better product, it stays on (granted you have to wait 2 hours, but it smells nice and stays in place).
