Loosens up the old silicone caulk for easier removal. Biodegradable.
on June 14, 2010
I bought this to remove my old silicone caulking in the bathtub and floor. It is labeled biodegradable and much more less toxic than others on the market. It does have a warning to be careful when you use it next to a painted wall as you may want to test it colorfastness first.
In regards to its effectiveness, I would say it does work somewhat that it helped me loosen up the silicone caulks around the tub and between the tiles. It will not dissolve the existing silicone caulk. What it does is it makes it easier to scrub off old one with the help of a caulk remover tool. Also, using a silicone glove, I felt that the remover penetrates the gloves into my fingers. Some of the leftover fragments silicone that were still sticking on the tiles, were also much easier to remove on the second pass.
