You may be wondering…Wayne washes the carpets and Tracy caulks the bathroom?
Yup thats how we roll in this house ;)
My new laptop froze yesterday. I couldn't do anything. I couldn't even shut it down, so figured I would do some work around the house.
Our bathroom counter needed to be re-caulked and after caulking around the downstairs toilet, I figured I should do the main bathroom counter next.
This is the after photo, forgot to take a before photo.
I had done it in clear caulk last time and I didn't like the clear, so went for the white this time around.
The first thing to do is remove all the old caulk.
It is a tedious and not so fun of a job.
But my finger exacto knife from Fiskars worked great.
It scraped away the thinnest parts of this.
I have never tried this way before, I had always just used my finger, but I thought I would give it a go.
Using painters tape, adhere it to the wall and another strip to the counter, leaving a gap for the caulk.
Keeping even pressure to the tube, run the caulk in-between the tape.
After that is complete, wet your finger and run your finger between the tape, smoothing the caulk.
You have to clean off your finger and re-wet it many times during this step.
While the caulk is still wet, slowly pull off the tape for a nice crisp seam.
When the tape is pulled off, some of the caulk may lift up, just wet your finger and re-smooth the caulk….isn't that a funny word, caulk ;)
As you are waiting for the caulk to dry…why not take a selfie, lol.
Here it is looking like new again :)
That was my exciting day today :)
I also put together my mailings for my ATC swap I am in.
I hope you all had a very creative Wednesday.
I am enjoying the season finale of Survivor :)
