I wiped it off as much as I could while it's curing and now there is just a cloudy film.

Will "goo off" hurt the acrylic. I know acetone and methylene work great for removing silicone... Also dissolving acrylic

I actually bought the acrylic and had it cut at lows because their glass was soooo thin i didn't feel comfortable buying it. I would rather have had glass but the guy at lowes assured me that silicone would bond to acrylic just fine, and it turns out that it just peels off?

Bet I can't return it once it's been cut, even though the salesman said silicone would bond to acrylic just fine. That sucks.
