removing silicone mastic

Postby Jenn King » Thu Dec 15, 2011 3:41 pm

My husband has just fitted a sink into a worktop and used clear silicone mastic which is now on the worktop all around the sink. How can I get this off, without of course damaging the standard formica type worktop.
Thanks for any suggestions
