Remove Black Silicone Stains on Monocouche render?


New Member
Hi there,

I replaced at outdoor socket at home recently and I wasn’t as careful as I should have been with the Black Silicone sealantI used to seal the gap against the wall. I’ve made a bit of a mess cleaning out the squeeze out which has since dried onto the Monocouche render. I’ve tried using a bit of diesel to clean off but suspect the pigment has gotten into the pours of the render? Any advice for removing?

Many Thanks,

Yep, diesel has always been the first choice of cleaner for siliconing. My customers love the fresh and zingy smell it leaves.

You can buy a handy litre bottle from most outlets.

Always use clear silicon when you have 2 contrasting colours, unless you’re an ace with the silicony like Chrispy. clear/unless an ace/like chrispy/not diesel/unless you’re a farmer
