Default Removing Silicon

How would I go about removing silicon that has accidently gotten onto ribbon or elastic headbands?
I sometimes accidently get a little bit of silicon on my bows & on the wrong side of my elastics. How would I go about getting it off? I tried acetone but that doesnt work.
It looks horrible, especially on black & dark colours.

I came across this at Lowes today and I thought about you. It is called Motsenbocker's Lift Off Caulk-silicone and foam sealant remover. It claims to remove it from fabrics, furniture and other stuff. I found it next to the silicone caulk.

ooohh...hold off on the turpentine--try it on a scrap first. See if the pigment is colour safe and make sure it doesn't leave a mark...

Thanks, yes I will try it on some scrap first. I just have to be more careful when using the silicon. I tend to do things in a hurry
