Removing silicon sealant
The bath sealant has gone moldy and it seems is also leaking (water through the ceiling below), any tips for removing it?Posted 8 years ago
It curls round the edge of the bath (out of sight) and so won't 'just' pull out if you grab a bit, so far I've been left to dig it out with a stanley knife which is extremely slow and tedious, so any tip to remove it would be great.whyterSubscriber
You can buy sealing strips which do the same job as the sealant. no idea if they are good or mould resistant.
A real pain to remove fully. I use a sharp Stanley knife blade to scrape it all off, and a blunt scraper thing. The silicone eater didn't work for me – and it was 3x as much as the replacement sealant!Posted 8 years agospooky_b329Member
I used the standard Screwfix anti-mould stuff…its gone mouldy, BUT only where it got marked by dripping water when it was going off, looks like someone dug their fingernails into it.
Rest of it is pefectly white, think it only cost £3 as well 🙂 Been there a year now.Posted 8 years ago
