Run the edge of the putty knife along the edge and use it to separate the bead of caulking from the porcelain or fiberglass of the fixture. Remove any items that can be removed and clean the edge well. If the fixture can’t be removed, make sure there is no residue of the old caulking left on or near the sealing surfaces.
