How to Remove Caulk from a Shower

  1. Remove as much of the sealant as possible by wiping with a clean, white terry cloth or paper towel.
  2. Apply Goo Gone Caulk Remover directly to the sealant and wait 60 seconds.
  3. Using a plastic putty knife, gently remove the sealant.
  4. After using the putty knife, use a nylon brush to scrub away the remaining residue.
  5. Clean the area with soap and water after.

Additional Tips

  • Before re-caulking, be sure to wait until the surface is completely dry.
  • Smaller nylon brushes work best for caulk removal, especially in corners.
