Cleaning off the extra silicon

Hey Guys

I am helping a friend building his aquarium before I start my new one. He has some silicon which is extra and needs to be cleaned off from the glass. We did not try anything yet so that we do not damage the glass.

What do you suggest as cleaning solvent? any brand names? where can I buy?

Thanks a lot people

hey guys i used a sharp razor and i took off the extra silicone however there's still some traces left...cant manage to get it off because its an extremely thin layer of silicone but yet still very visible.
