Best method for removing caulk?

I sealed one side of my trailer and am not happy with how it looks. What is the best way to remove it? I applied it yesterday, so would it be easier if I waited for it to cure all the way? Thanks.

If it is still soft you can take just a scraper or I use one of those red Richards pry bars and scrap it off. Or just wait till it has cured but depending on how bad and messy it is that may be a bad idea cause it will be harder to remove

What is the caulk material? That makes a difference too. Hardware stores sell a caulk removal tool, but it may not be good for your siding. I never use anything containing silicone, it does not adhere well when cured and allows moisture to seep in.
To make a clean, neat caulk. Use painters tape to mask off the seam, crack. I allow 1/8" for the caulk bead on each side. Remove the tape after caulking and you have a clean, neat job. Then_remember to not touch it and smear your work. (been there done that)
