Replacing caulking around your home can also help you save money on heating and cooling. Replacing cracked and worn caulk in your bathroom and kitchen will help protect your home from mold, mildew and water damage. So let’s learn How to Caulk Like a Pro.

    As much as I have caulked even after reading this, I still suk at it. I must say I haven’t tried using tape but I’ll give it a try once again. Thanks for the tutorial Brittany!

    Must be the season for caulking. I just did my tub/shower Saturday and went to my mom’s today to do her bathroom sink and tub/shower. Too bad I hadn’t seen this before I caulked as I could have used the mineral spirits trick. I did use the painter’s tape which makes such a clean line! Thanks for all your hints and advice.

    Good article, Brittany. One thing I would warn your readers is to cut the hole on the tip of the caulk tube smaller than you think you will need. It is easy to go back to enlarge the hole if you need to but if you cut it too big you will have a mess. Voice of experience here. I actually had to buy a second tube of caulk because the first one just squirted out too much caulk. The person who invents a little tool to place over the caulk tip so it can be recut will make a fortune.

    We had a bathroom renovations done in May, but within a few weeks the caulking around the tub had cracked in several places. If I want to fix this on my own, do I need to remove all the caulk that is there, or can I just go over it, like a patch up job? Appreciate your thoughts.
