Remove Varnish from Teak Caulk

So, I'm jumping into the brightwork on my boat and I'm in the process of removing the old varnish with a heat gun. All is going well/quickly but the varnish that is on the caulking is a bit stubborn to remove.

The heat makes the caulk soft (of course) and the caulking, when scraped, tends to roll. The varnish doesn't come off too well.

Anyone have a trick or suggestion to remove that varnish?
