silicone

I am in the process of polishing my 66 as, but the owner before me put silicone around a piece of plexiglass over the frt window. ive replaced the window but how can i remove the silicone from around all the rivets? I did the best I could with a razor,but there is still alot left.

There was a thread just recently on this that listed several different products members have used. Look under the "sealants" sub-forum (maybe?).
