I just got a used 38 gallon tank and I want to get rid of this excess silicone residue. I used a razor blade and got rid of the majority of it but there is a very thin film of it left. Ive heard some suggest alcohol, others vinegar, and even acetone. Anyone have any safe ideas? All advice and help appreciated.
vinegar or ammonia and a razor blade. rinse well after.
alcohol or acetone will prob. be toxic.
yea thats what I was thinking too. Ill have to try the vinegar tomorrow morning since I have some here at home, if that doesnt work out well Ill run to the store and grab some ammonia. Thanks for the advice.
