Removing Non Paintable Caulk


Grabbed the wrong tub in the garage.

It is already dry. How can I remove it?

The paint is peeling up on the edges where it was used.

Please help!!!

TIA

You could razor it out, being very careful not to damage anything or..........if its the paint just not holding, you could paint along it with a good acrylic bonding primer.once dry you can use other paint on top.

Razor blade, putty knife
Or primer with BIN (may need two coats) then paint
(use alcohol to remove oils from caulk)

Everytime I see that stuff on peoples homes I am doing I go into their garage and make them throw away the stuff. Best to remove it.
