Cleaning off the extra silicon

Hey Guys

I am helping a friend building his aquarium before I start my new one. He has some silicon which is extra and needs to be cleaned off from the glass. We did not try anything yet so that we do not damage the glass.

What do you suggest as cleaning solvent? any brand names? where can I buy?

Thanks a lot people

If it is just silicone the razor would take it off. Are you sure you are not seeing a scratch or something else. Freshly applied silicone would not hold up to the razor blade. I have rubbed small thin pieces off with my bare fingers before if it was on a flat surface and not in one of the joints.
