There is a chemical silicon "loosener." I've seen others here on the Forums mention it, but don't know its name.

If worse comes to worst, try using a heat gun to soften it and scrape it off with a 1" putty knife. With reasonable care and a smooth edge, steel will not scratch glass.

Just hold a rag soaked in Mineral Spirits against the silicone. It'll soften & you can scrap it off with a wood or plastic scraper.
