How do I remove all remnants of silicone caulk from my shower base?

How do I remove all remnants of silicone caulk from my shower base and surround so I can install a new shower enclosure? Also, how do I remove the yellow stain where the old shower doors were?

    The easiest way would be to remove the old surround first and then scrape the caulk. A putty knife should do the trick, just be careful not to dig into the base and scratch it.

    The caulk may also be removed with a single edged razor blade, please be careful.

    The stain can be removed by CLR, calcium, lime , rust-available at DIY stores.
