Removing orange seal from frame?

I have orange seal tubeless sealant stuck to a steel frame and thus far have been unable to remove it.

Any suggestions? I’ve tried elbow grease, soapy water, water, isopropyl alcohol, wd40. None are getting rid of it...it is very dried and stuck to the backside of the seat tube and around the bb area.

Have you tried Dawn dish soap? I've gotten it off one of my steel bikes with that before.

Tooth brush and some warm soapy water. Or use some goo gone.

this may sound crazy, but maybe more orange seal?

sometimes the solvents in a product are the best solvent to re-activate the product. perhaps some wet orange seal on a rag might work.

91% Isopropyl alcohol. Works best of anything I've tried, in fact after using this I no longer try anything else.

Vegetable oil (canola, soybean, whatever you got) on a cloth rag.

Remove the lingering oil with original blue Dawn (the ONLY dish soap; accept no substitutes).

Not me, I’ll gladly cover my entire frame with dried sealant before using tubes
