You can buy it on-line, can't you? CT should ship.

I thought I'd try that but I didn't see a way to add to a cart. I'll look again. Thanks for the tip.

Goo Gone will remove silicone.

Just called their hot line and the gentleman I spoke with said that online purchases will not be possible for a few months. He also could not take and order over the phone so I'm left with calling a store. The only problem might be that they can't ship/sell to the States. Any thoughts on this?

Called a store in Calgary and the manager is going to try to work something out on Tuesday. The problem is that they don't really have a way to accept payment except in person. She's thinking I could fax my DL to her for proof that I am who I say I am. Anyways, I'll keep everyone posted as to my level of success.

Yes, we want to know if you find Go Gone to be helpful. It didn't work for me. I think I've tried every "normal" chemical known to man. Everything from acetone to WD40 to mineral spirits ...

I have successfully used Goof Off (or Goo Gone, just another brand) to remove silicone residue. We have to do this a lot when recaulking bathtubs and other fixtures. You do first have to remove as much as possible without damaging the substrate, but you smear in on, and a short while later go at it and rub the residue off with a clean cloth (not paper towel).

I usually drape paper towel over silicone residue after removing as much as possible without scratching. Then I wet the towel with Goo Gone and let it sit for several mins. It will remove in time.
Goof Off and Goo Gone contain different contents. Goof Off may contain thinners. Goo Gone is just citrus. I'd stick with citrus.

I usually scrape the bulk of it off then use Tumbler with a scrubbie. I've been using it for over 20 years with great results. When I paint over an area that was contaminated with silicone and the paint goes on without any problem it must have done a pretty good job at removing traces of silicone.

I also routinely use it to wipe down anything that I'm going to paint.

On a side note, I know I've read the reasons but can someone condense them into a short list why we should prefer to use butyl rubber instead of silicone products to redo the beads?

Short list? How about:

Silicone is a temporary fix that can turn into a permanent problem!

Nothing sticks to silicone, except silicone.

So... that means... once it is used... unless you get it ALL off, you'll continue to have problems.

Paint and silicone don't mix. A trailer that has had silicone applied, will need special care to prevent fish eye in the paint.

And on and on and on....
