    I'm going to assume you are talking about caulk, the stuff that seals the edges of the tub from water getting through and leaking through the ceiling of the floor below and grab either Bob from@Woodbridge Environmental, Ed at @AK Complete Home Renovations or Jeff our @Home Repair Tutor and see if any of them can help you. My guess is the best bet would be to remove it and add fresh caulk, but I'm still calling out the pros to make sure.

  • Becky is correct. You need to cut out the old and put in new caulk that is designed to be used in wet bathroom locations. kitchen and bath caulk is what you are looking for. It comes in several colors, white, almond, and a few other colors. I do not think Red Devil makes a bath caulk, at least I have never seen it in our local stores. Most I have seen was from DAP.

    Thanks for your answer.... Home Depot sells Red Devil caulk,all colors,for kitchens and bathrooms. Which I wouldn't buy again,or recommend to others. My bathroom is all white, white caulk was applied,,,,1 yr ago,. It turned an almond color. I'm trying to get it white again.
