  1. On most hard surface floors, silly putty can be removed by gently scraping, using a dull-edged knife, spatula, plastic credit card, etc. (Silly putty, even when dried, remains fairly pliable and can often times be pulled from the surface.)
  2. Amyl acetate (banana oil) and acetone will soften any remaining residues of silly putty. However, amyl acetate is milder than acetone so might be a better choice on wood surfaces. Proceed with caution and use very sparingly in order not to damage the surface.

CAUTIONS: 

  • Always pretest each cleaning agent on an inconspicuous area first to determine colorfastness.
  • When using caustic, toxic, aromatic or flammable cleaning solutions, be certain to provide for adequate ventilation. Do not have an open flame near flammable cleaning solutions. Wear rubber gloves.
  • Do not allow amyl acetate to come in contact with plastics or furniture finishes.
