    @Skillman, I just realized you posted the same stuff earlier on in this thread that I used – so it definitely seemed to work to remove the caulk in my experience but it works best if you leave it for a minute or so.

    And, if the promotions are to be believed at all, it works great on gum, tar, paint, and all sorts of other stuff too. @Skillman

    OLD THREAD WARNING.

    I’m pulling up this old thread rather than start a new one. I just came accross this silicone and other sticky stuff remover. Unlike most other liquid solutions out there that are noxious solvents that try to break down the silicone, this one is a bond breaking agent that simply loosens the silicone intact off the surface it is stuck to and seems to work well on a lot more surfaces compared to most other ones out there.

    Not sure where to find it in the US. It must be out there, as I’m finding articles and reviews on it that are over 10 years old.

    Here are charts as to how it compares to other stuff out in the market.

    Looks like a good product. I looked at the website and saw the auto tint? That stuff is very easy to remove with out any special anything.

    Neither have I. I actually sent an email tonite to a small local supplier down the street from me asking if he’d consider carrying it. It has a lot of uses other than just caulk removal.

    I always get good results using a caulk blade on the OMT.

    Looks like it’s a good product. Let us know what they say about stocking it.

    Any idea whether this product has a strong odor when used indoors?

    OnlineSupply out of BC carries it. That’s where I found out about it. It was via an email from them. I just want to not have to pay for shipping.

    That’s just it, unlike solvents, it is pretty well almost totally safe with less than 1% VOCs. You could use it in a closet basically.

    After watching the video I did a search for Remov and it is available on amazon in the US. The stuff looks amazing although it is not inexpensive, $26 for an 8 oz bottle.

    😮😮😮I just checked our Quebec supplier 89 $ for 1 quart
    I will stick to scrubbing and the dab product I’ve been happily using
    Although it does look like a great product

    Thanks good to know.

    So if it’s not solvent based, then it leaves a residue that needs to be wiped clean after use?

    Most of the time, once you remove the old caulk, it’s followed by new caulk within a short time. Such as a toilet or sink change out, or a tub re-glaze, you remove the old caulk, do what you need to do, then have to apply new caulk, in the same spot (or close to it) where the old caulk was. I wonder how the clean up work? If it’s not solvent based is there is some sort of cleaner to use it with? You don’t want residues of this stuff to interfere with the curing of the new caulk, or just wipe clean with a rag and ready to recaulk?

    Seems you can buy in smaller bottles.

    http://removcanada.com/

    The video in their front page about 14 seconds in showed they used a small bottle version.

    Is it like this one on eBay?

    That’s alittle pricey. I don’t think I would pay that much either.
