See it harmless and inert here ...

Feeling confident I went to work and soon got the first member on perfectly, first shot, - but upside down!
Then managed to drop it and within this diversion, it collected dust, detritus and other debris. I cleaned this off, so the previously adhesive surface is now squeaky clean - but unsticky!
When my door finishers were put on two years ago, I remember Colin (CFS75 on Radio Caroline) applying silicone to attach them. I seem to recall that if ever a reversal was needed, the silicone would not damage the paint if removed with the correct solvent?
I still have some silicone left and wondered if anyone could advise whether in applying this to the now 'unsticky protector' would it ultimately be removable? Of course without damage to the door's paintwork, should its attraction diminish, endeavour weaken, or utility diminish: and it goes the way of today's venture, but at the direction of the almighty's influences, rather than my internecine fumblings?
I suppose revealing my 'o' level in chemistry, a lot of my question addresses the composite of the two surfaces.
Indeed this could apply to lots of additions, badges, number plates etc. In short what sticks what to what and with out changing the original surfaces - a catalytic adhesive I suppose?
Anyone know what the original 'peel off' substance that I managed to mess up is anyway? It plays quite a part in my life from cup hooks and shower curtain rails, to new credit card issue letters, this substance is highly prevalent.
For me, already physically re-arranged, and now seemingly stricken with bio rhythmic disruption, the need for remedy may become increasingly necessary ...
answers on a postcard please ...
