sealant remover

Is there any easy way to remove sealant from around the bath and sink. Some bits have become mouldy and unsightly but its difficult to remove with the tool sold in DIY stores.

There are some solvents for silicone sealant on the market. Screwfix do one I think, but I bought my last one from Aldi and surprisingly it worked very well.

Try some of the DIY chains.

Razor blade/ old chisel removes most of it then use the sealant remover to clean the rest up.
