Silicone caulk is a marvelous thing. It can be used for so many things in a bathroom or kitchen, every home should have at least one tube of it in their house at all times. Silicone caulk, of course, is essential in the bathroom or kitchen when it comes to anything that leaks. Here are just a few of the ways you can use it.
If you have a leak around the base of your toilet, silicone caulk will help to seal it. Simply spread a small thin piping of the caulk around the toilet seal, push into the opening with a spatula and then smooth it off. Your toilet should no longer leak.
If you have leaks under your sink or around your bath tub faucets, use silicone caulk around the leak, Let it dry. Your leak should be gone.
Every bath tub also has silicone caulk around it’s outside and, occasionally, it will spring a leak as the caulk gets old and allow water through. Just add more caulk to the place where the leak has appeared and smooth down with a spatula. Let it dry for a few hours before taking a bath or shower and your leak will be gone.
For the kitchen, the same things apply. It’s wonderful to use around faucets and leaks, as well as under your sink if you have problems with leaking pipes.
You’ll find various brands of caulk at your local DIY center. Grab a couple of them to use to see which one you prefer. Once you have a favorite, keep a tube at home.
