Caulking the Bathroom

Step 1
Use a scraper or a knife to scrape away any old caulk, grout and dirt.

Step 2
Clean the surface with detergent.

Step 3
Apply masking tape to both sides of the area you want to caulk (to prevent the caulk from spreading into other areas). Fill the joints with the caulk. Maintain a steady pressure and move at a rate that will fill the crack evenly.

Step 4
Wet your fingers with cold water (so that the caulk won’t stick to them). Smooth and level the caulk with your wet fingers into a neat, slightly concave bed. (Plastic gloves can also be used, but you will need to wet them)

Step 5
Peel off the masking tape and discard it.
