Get some kitchen paper towel and soak in some bleach, then put it on the window sealant with mould for 24 hours, it will be spotless the day after

Paintable mould resistant waterproof sealant? What was the original brand name this was sold under for under £2?

If this is as good as the other Gorilla stuff like the tape, glue etc, it's streets ahead of anything else I've ever come across in over 30 years in the building trade.

This is good stuff, and a good price. The only alternative to this is the Dow products, and they are a bit more expensive

To be honest. I can't see what the deal is as the picture is too small and blurs when I zoom in, either way, if it is silicon then you are better with this rather than a paintable sealant in your shower.
This stuff is aimed at supermarkets and DIY stores and highly advertised. There is a reason it's being sold off in a discounter store. I haven't used it, can't afford to. I haven't seen it for sale in any of the builders merchants I have accounts with.

Thanks - will need a good silicone sealant for my new apto, putting in new bathroom and en-suite. Off to Toolstation I go.
Just started to reseal our bath. Anything out there that will hold unfilled bath gap about 4mm to filled bath gap about 6 or 7 mm? Also found in places rather than an open gap there are parts filled with grout. Guess that needs removing? Not going to reseat the bath.

Never had much success with stuff like that plus wouldn't be continuous at corners and over grouting.

Thanks for the tip. I’ll try it in the other room as I’ve ruined the sealant with that Cillit Bang stuff, scrubbing has made some of it come away.

Remember when you seal your bath to fill it to the brim with water BEFORE you seal the bath in!
It really does help the silicone sealant stretch especially when you use the bath after you have sealed it.

You might be better off with shower tray sealant strips if your silicone sealant comes away from the wall or bath if the gap is too wide!

You posted a random deal for acrylic sealant which is used for door frames.

The stuff in this deal is silicone sealant used for bathrooms and kitchen sinks etc!

Yeah I know to open the gap but then I worry about the sealant shearing off due to compression because the gap changes so much.

Lol they just deleted my post cos i said bu**er

Just use shower strips they stick like nothing else on earth and do the job.
Best to do the job right thought and move the bath.
I know its a pain but always best to do the job properly otherwise it might come back and give you twice as much work!
That much I have learnt over the years tiling peoples kitchens, bathrooms and industrial units!
Used this for my shower a few weeks ago. It has become cracked and mouldy so have to replace it. Leaking bare water too...

Problem is, it's a proper ballache to get off... Even with a Stanley knife ..

Will stick to the good quality ones in future ..

Kindest regards

If you're resealing a bath, it's best to do this with water or bags of sand and then seal, I recently did my shower with CT1 sealant, its f***ing expensive, but good, I sealed the tray to the tiles flush, and then went over again the following day as you would giving the 45 degree head if sealant, leave it to dry for 12/24 hours and all should be good, apologies for the long winded answer.

Bad idea silicone sealant doesnt adhere properly to another layer , you could be in for trouble if it leaks!
A polysulphide based mastic is far better as it seals better, remains more flexible and sticks to anything!

You happen to know what that is? 151? Ever build? Still trying to decide who's silicone to use for the bath. I see ever build 500 states +- 20 or 25% elasticity but I'm really not sure if it is any good or better than a dowsil or unibond. I found one site saying it was the best sealant but with a check price link so must may be an affiliate Swizz.

Lidl only sell it every now and again so its a lottery whether you will find it.
Its got some greek name light blue and yellow/white tube but its pretty good I have been using it for 10 years £2.99 i think a tube so a good price too even used it for sticking my remote controls to the back of my telly with velcro strips and has never come off in ten years lol!

Whatever you do dont use the stuff they sell in poundland or HB its awful i tried to use the HB stuff cos i couldnt get the lidl stuff at the time and it didnt fully harden or stick properly - awful stuff!

Checkout the ultimate handyman on youtube he is the best DIY guy on youtube and a damn nice guy and very professional - if he says its good then you need look no further - I am good at DIY but i have learned loads from his vidz!
