The baby powder worked great for us. But I agree with Shawn, it's a good idea to use the razor blades to get the majority off first. To detail with powder and steel wool, sprinkle the steel wool with the powder. The silicone doesn't smear but balls up in the powder. Without the powder, it only seemed to reapply on the glass.

Personally I have had better luck with a very sharp blade.  You will go through many blades but it will get the majority of it off and then detail from there.  Get your waiver signed first though.

We have a big job coming up at the end of the week with glass that is covered in silicone.  What is the process using baby powder and steel wool?  Do you sprinkle powder on dry wool and then rub off?  We've always used steel wool but have never added the baby powder but thought we might try it on this job.
