I fought with degradation of stain every year. When I painted the entire board, sealed it, I gained an extra year before the moisture compromised it.
Silicone is soluble in vinegar. Try applying some vinegar to the remaining residue with a sponge, waiting 30 minutes or so, then trying to rub it off (perhaps with a stiff brush).
Try a liquid detergent most major supermarkets have their own branded product. If you must use a tablet make sure the dispenser is dry first then give it a short spray of silicon furniture polish before inserting the tablet.
Not really. In my experience, fan design and exhaust muffling are the primary factors. Since most of the noise occurs at the fan motor, the vacuum collector doesn't have much to do with noise volume.
It appears that there are a series of things that are going on with the metal rail edge of the drafting table. Here is what I saw: There is residual celo tape or tape glue present. Original finish that appears to be a paint is rubbed off in many places. Some miscellaneous glue or finish drippings seem to be present. There appears to be some dark finish the ...
Moisture-cured polyurethane foam (e.g. Dow Great Stuff), once cured, is just about impossible to remove by solvents or chemicals. Your only solution is mechanical removal (sanding, cutting, sandblasting, scraping, wire wheel, explosives, etc). Your choice of which depends on the substrate, the environs, and whether you're angling for a Darwin Award.
You use masking tape to adhere some lightweight poly/plastic sheeting onto the wall directly below your work area, which will catch dust and/or channel it directly into a collector bin.

As cumbersome as it may be, a vacuum will collect not only the large dust particles that fall down, but also the fine dust that's thrown into the air. If you're using a hole saw to cut the ceiling, a dust bowl (or similar ...

I'm not sure that complete removal is an option. As a result, the way I would tackle this is as follows: First, remove as much as possible with scraping. Next, paint (matching the brick color). If that still doesn't provide an acceptable asthetic, cover it up. Contact the window manufacturer to find out what stain was used and make a trim piece of wood ...
