Hi,

I've attached three photos which show different types of product used to fill the gaps between the window and window sill.

From what I have read it seems that people have confused decorators caulk with plumbing caulk.

What I have around my windows is hard and now creamy in colour. One of the photos shows silicone sealant used along with this other stuff.

What I'd like to know is how to get rid of the nasty cracked creamy stuff.

The silicone I can handle becasue it's used around the bath and I've done that before.

Many thanks for any help.

About half way along the line the silicone starts, but whats the stuff before and how do I get rid of it?

I had an idiot does just the same on my windows.

I used a sharp chisel held as flat as possible, so I didn't gouge the PVC.

Or if you don't feel confident doing that, use some silicone remover (although the one I used still said to remove as much mechanically as possible)
