    I need to redo the caulking around my bathtub and my vanity sink. It has black mould on it. How do you remove the existing mouldy caulk to provide a clean surface to redo the caulk? I am happy with the caulking process but it is removing the icky old stuff that has me stumped. thanks

    Back in the 80's I worked in a wood shop they built exterior cornice/fascia & doors & dormer window for Georgian style homes in Richmond Hill Ont Canada. I have a cabinet maker ticket but I was the token female employee! I was the one who filled/sanded nail holes and caulked everything they built. Cut your tube on a 45 degree angle and your bead shall be smooth and straight, Run you bead without stopping then with a wet finger smooth it out. For 100% silicone, before smoothing your bead, dip your finger in a wee dish with dish soap, this insures the silicone won't stick to your fingers.
