The bath sealant has gone moldy and it seems is also leaking (water through the ceiling below), any tips for removing it?
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.
Didn't think there would be much that helped, but thought I'd best ask 1st, think I need to make a tool to help me remove it might be the best option.
Have been ignoring the mold because it's such a crappy job, but the leak has pushed the g/f patience too far
Mines gone the same, i really wonder in this world of high tech this and that why nobody can come up with a suitable way of sealing round a bath that does not rely on whats basically a posh type of glue.
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!
And when you replace the sealant, make sure you buy decent silicon stuff! Did mine with cheapo wilko's own brand sealant, which was very stiff and went mouldy very quickly, so had to repeat the entire process again with decent stuff.
