    I have in the past used white spirit with some success but try a test area first .

    Ear bud dipped in neat domestos bleach. Just run it along the silicone lines and leave. Just like treating a little bit of black mound on bathroom sealant. Works a treat on our MH. Couple of days it’s all white again.

    Buy a tube of cheap toothpaste and a stiff toothbrush.
    Works a treat.
    Chemicals will attack the sealant and cause big problems in the future.
