It's not coming out easily. One piece, about 8 inches, came out and that was good, but others are very short. This is going to take forever. I've been using the tool here by trying to put it under the caulk and pulling it up. I think it's intended to be a burnisher, left over from my art major days long ago, but the curved end is helpful. I read somewhere where a person had trouble getting caulk out because it was hard and brittle. This caulk isn't like that. It just doesn't want to pull out like I want it to. Ideas?
