Silacone solvent

>I have forgotten which one of you generous people suggested that because silicone smelled like vinegar that vinegar might be a solvent to get a broken goblet stub out of the turned wood stem. Because all the other info I could download spoke of industrial and highly toxic solvents, I thought that the vinegar would be worth a try. After three or four days of soaking the stub in a glass of vinegar, the stub came twisting out with a generous amount of goo attached. Thanks for the suggestion.
