"This is just the thing for removing old silicone residue, I just left it a little bit longer than the advised 10 minutes on the instruction. After that a scraper and a rag was all that was needed to create a clean surface before applying new sealant. Ideal!!"
"No Nonsense - Some of the best value and best performing products.
This is no exception. I used this on a customers bathroom today. I had never used it before and I was relying on other reviews. They were not wrong - it is simple, easy, straightforward and just works!
Read the instructions - there aren't many. Made life easy and will be keeping a stock of these in my go-to box."
"Scrape off as much as you can with a blade or other scraper then liberally apply it. Give it 15 minutes (though I forgot about one section for well over an hour and it was fine) and come back to it and the silicone that's left should just fall away from the surface it's stuck to (with a bit of scraping admittedly!)
I've had to do a couple of second passes with it as I wasn't able to scrape enough away with the initial cutting, but on the second pass the remaining silicone came away.
"Excellent product ; removes every last bit providing it is not used sparingly. The thicker the coat, the better the results ; I have just replaced the silicone around every window in the house which took between 3 and 4 tubs and made the job a doddle!"
"No gasket remover in stock at H* and no motor factors open. Ordered online from local store and then collected. Applied to old hardened 'Hylomar' and RTV gasket on aluminium engine cases and left for 20 minutes. Gelatinous, so sticks well to vertical and inverted surfaces. Removed all the gasket and paper very easily using a scalpel blade, with no damage to the mating surfaces. Will keep a bottle handy in the workshop cupboard, pleased with the product performance."
"If it were not for this product I would still be trying to remove silicone sealant from a worktop and splashback I recently fitted, the customer changed their mind on what colour they wanted in the join so it had to be removed carefully, I took the main beading out then applied this, it worked a treat, use it with 82791 remover, it's plastics so won't damage the surface."
"I got some silicone sealant on a pair of decent trousers and bought this as a "salvage" operation. I wasn't sure if it would work or it=f it would take the dye out of the trousers as well. Amazingly it worked really well and after a few applications and some scraping with the edge of a plastic card and my finger nail followed by a gentle scrub with a nail brush all the silicone was removed form a pair of fine corduroy trousers. Well done Screwfix - not what its for but it works. I may even use it to remove some silicone from round a bath etc!"
"First time using this this product, was pleasantly surprised in how well it worked, effortlessly. Just applied to the old silicone left it for a while and used an old credit card to wipe it off the tiles then wiped over with a rag and clean."
