Removing Silicon Adhesive
 
Not sure if this the correct forum for this, but it's a problem, and it's in the shower, so here goes:
I had a shampoo/soap dispenser mounted on the wall (fiberglass) of my shower. It fell and shattered but I'm left with strips of stubborn silicon adhesive on the wall. I could probably get it off with a razor blade, but don't want to risk scratching the wall.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Rob

a razor blade is what i would use, very carefully. I don't know of anything that will dissolve silicone. Or you could get another dispenser and put back in the same place.

Try McKanica silicone caulk remover. ACE hardware sells it. Other places might to check on line. I used it on a bathroom sink it seemed to work OK but you still had to work it hard.

this link will work but still have to rub a lot when i used it even after scraping the thick spots. i also on some surfaces like acrylic i use cotton terry cloth and denatured alcohol

The reviews on the Motsenbocker's are bad.
