Hi, my name is Andrew Dryden, and I'm going to show you easy ways to remove caulk. Things you'll need: a utility knife and clean cloths. First, grasp the utility knife and press the blade down between the rear of a line of caulk and the tile or fixture along which it was originally placed. Slice down through the line of caulk, concentrating on severing it from the line of joint it covers. Continue in this fashion until the old caulk has been removed. Rub denatured alcohol into the area where the caulking was detached, and finally reapply the new caulk to the areas you've removed the old caulk from. And those are easy ways to remove caulking.
