Removing silicone

PO removed the windshield to cowl gasket and instead of replacing it he used a couple of tubes of silicone caulk to seal it. I have removed the caulk, razor bladed as much of the film as I could but there still is a film I can get up with a fingernail. It there anything safe to the paint that will get the silicone film up? I was wondering if acetone would work?

Thanks.

Your fingernail. Nothing Ive ever found. Might try a Mr Clean cleaning pad,the white and blue ones.

Maybe the 3M decal removal disk in a drill?
