    how to remove silicone stickiness

    Hey guys!

    just finished seam sealing my DIY hammock tarp.

    after letting it dry outside for 24hrs, its still sticky to the touch .. any tips and tricks about that ?

    (I used a 1:1 ratio mineral spirits and 100% silicone mix)

    thanks guys!

    I use Permatex Windshield and Glass Sealant (flowable silicone). Canadian Tire sells it in my area. After 24 hours, it doesn't stick.

    Or rub a lil dirt on it. That works too. Eventually it'll go away on its own if you.like none of the above options.
