Set aside a few hours (on two separate days), crank up your favorite tunes, and pair with your partner to take on this easy task.
- First, use a putty knife to scrape out all the loose yucky stuff from the joint where your tub meets the wall.
- Clean the joint thoroughly to remove any remaining soap scum, and then take a break ’til tomorrow to let it dry.
- Get yourself a tube of white silicone bathroom caulk, cut a very small bit off the tip, and squeeze out a tiny bead into the open joint. Push the tube; don’t pull it.
- Smooth the caulk with your pinky, and use a rag to wipe the excess off your finger.
- Repeat, and repeat, and repeat, and repeat until all your joints are taken care of. Remember, crank up those tunes!
