Epoxy Mistake

Hi Gang (Liberals and Conservatives):
I installed some "after market" soap dishes today and used epoxy instead of silicone upon manufactureres recommendation.
I won't do that again - anyway the epoxy dripped down the shower wall.
HELP! Is there a solvent which will clean the tile?
I went to Dal and bought some "epoxy grout" solvent, but haven't tried it yet. Looking for some experience from the experts.
Thanks, Mike

I work 24/7 - five days a week!

If it is Mapei Kerapoxy.... you can heat it up... with a torch or a heat gun.

Methyl Chloride (paint stripper) will soften the epoxy. Brush it on and let it set. Clean it up and wash down with water.
