Permanent and semi-permanent marks clear packing tape leaves on the silicone can be removed using regular wet wipes. Although it will require some rubbing and some marks might still remain. Since I make appearance products (jewelry), I couldn't have marks on the material.

Other things I've tried: window cleaner - no result; organic jewelry cleaner - no result; dish soap and soft brush - removes marks and badly scratches silicone; dish soap on a towel - no result. Have any of you tried something else that worked?

@GraysCrafts: "Wet wipes" will likely contain isopropyl alcohol. You can buy this pure, or mixed with water, as "rubbing alcohol" from pharmacies. This is typically very effective at removing adhesive residue. Alternatively, hand sanitizer is mostly ethanol and may also be effective.

Thank you, mdkendall! I will try that. I guess adhesive remover might also work, although I don't know if it will leave light spots on the silicone.
