What tool do you use to remove caulking?
- Using a small putty knife, toothbrush, and/or the hook end of a 5-in-1 painter's tool (see picture below), scrape any remaining bits of caulk lose (this step, too, requires a bit of patience).
- Clean the surface using alcohol. Then kill any mold or mildew with a mixture of 1/3 cup bleach to 1 gallon of water.
Accordingly, how do you remove hardened caulk?
Remove the softened caulk carefully, using a putty knife to pull it gently out of the spaces between the tile and tub or sink. You can also use a special caulk remover tool or a utility knife to separate the caulk from the tub or sink. Be careful not to scrape the wall, sink or tub with any tools you use.
