A very common repair job is to replace the silicone seal between the bath and the tiled wall. This seal may develop leaks or become cloudy, discoloured and grubby. Leaks in this area can cause major damage to your house, such as rot. Itís an easy job, so why put up with a leaky, ugly seal?

Selleys Wet Area Silicone is a specially designed sealant for use in bathrooms where a joint is going to get wet but without being immersed in water. A great advantage of this product over others is the inbuilt mould inhibitor.

Step 1: Prepare to repair the gap between the bath and the tiles. Remove the old silicone with a blade and soften stubborn sealant with turps. Use Metho to ensure all surfaces are squeaky clean.

Step 2: To ensure a clean professional finish itís best to mask either side of the gap with masking tape allowing a couple of millimetres of both bath and tiles to be exposed for the sealant to adhere to. Take your time to get your tape dead straight.

Step 3: Apply the Selleys Wet Area Silicone by pushing the tube nozzle forward, allowing ample sealant to be pushed well into the gap. When the run is complete use a wet finger and smooth and press the sealant into the gap, leaving a smooth cove finish with any excess spread onto the masking tape.

Step 4: Before the sealant gets a Ďskiní, carefully remove the masking tape and the job is done.

tip Kevís Tip:
Remember that in other corners of your bathroom use Selleys No More Gaps Bathroom instead as it is paintable unlike Wet Area Silicone (which is not paintable).

Selleys Wet Area Silicone and all other Selleys products are available at all good hardware stores.
