I scrub the glass first, sometime with scrub wand and sometime with 1"
white nylon pad and then squeegee. Then I wet again, then I blade the
glass. Normally I wet glass after each stroke but with silicone I blade it
dry if the glass is sound. When you check from different angles and the
thinner smears of silicon seem to or do re appear I just rub them out with
blue surgical towel. I guess that is the part of the rpocess where people
use the steel wool, talcum powder, I'll try that someday also. If you go to
the Crescent City Brewhouse and look at the upper row of glass on second
floor you will see swirled scratched glass, several panes. We did that 15
years ago trying to get silicon off with green scrub pads. I still have the
account, a good reminder and lesson for me every month.

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.
