Henry is right on about the single edge razor blade.
You steel or cast iron tub will easily endue this
process with only some black scuffs if your blade
became dull during the job (change blades frequently!).
These scuffs clean off quite easily.

If you have a an acrylic tub be real careful with
the razor blade or your tub will be trashed! These
plastic tubs are basically junk compared to metal
tubs so I hope that you are not trying to recaulk
one of them. If you are, try cutting straight
down the tile wall to the tub surface then gently
prying the old caulking off with the razor or a
sharpened spatula (a handy tool). Lay the spatula
almost flat on the tub to prevent it getting an
ngle of attack on the tub - it's the caulk that has
to go.
Good Luck with your repairs!
