I recently replaced the caulking in the seams that join sections of the kids
bathroom walls. Within two days some of the caulking bubbled up and started
to peel of. I dug out the caulking, cleaned the joints with rubbing alcohol
as described on the DAP tube and re-caulked again. The caulking still is
"bubbling" off. I used DAP Kitchen & Bath Bright White. Suggestions?
It sounds as if it may have had silicone caulk. It is lamentable
that so many people suggest and/or use this stuff. It would be my
absolute last choice of anything to apply in most cases. If you
did not get it off, your new caulk will probably not stick to it.
The only way to remove it is to cut or scrape through it, probably
with a single edge razor blade.
Keep the whole world singing. . . .
