hey guys, i did a search and read that acetone was the best thing to use to remove the residue left by the silicone. would the acetone fingernail polish remover work for this? or would even the acetone free polish remover be harsh enough to remove it if i weren't able to get my hands on the acetone one?

Acetone fingernail polish remover will work, but it definitely is much weaker than the straight stuff you can buy at the hardware store.

or would even the acetone free polish remover be harsh enough to remove it if i weren't able to get my hands on the acetone one?
As the name implies, acetone free polish remover does not have acetone. Since acetone is the best thing to use to remove silicone residue, acetone free polish remover would not be the best thing to use...
