How to clean clear silicone

Postby Frenchman69 » Tue May 21, 2013 5:25 pm

Hi There

I have just applied clear silicone around my daughters hob, sink, and upstanding on WORKTOP.

I made the mistake of cutting the nozzle too far so result being, too much was applied, and it went either side of intended area.

Any advice to clean up/remove any excess silicone please.
