    Question caulking a shower

    I need to remove the caulk around the bottom of my shower walls. Is there any type of chemical that I can use to make it easier to remove? I sc****d it off about five years ago and re caulk it due to mold, there is mold again.

    Sorry, you'll have to do it again. There are hand tools to make your job a little easier, but basically, it's all labor.

    Treat the area with bleach and use mold resistant caulking.

    lastly, make sure that the crease is 110% dry prior to putting the caulk on. i sometimes use a hair dryer or heat gun to dry out the crease that you can't access with a rag or paper towels.

    Be sure to use only 100% silicone. Not siliconized latex. Latex is mold food. You can order grout matching silicone in sanded or unsanded in any of 300 grout matching colors from www.ColorRiteInc.com
