Answer: 
DAP Alex Plus can be cleaned up with soap and water while still in the uncured form. After the product is cured, it must be removed by physically cutting/scraping. Dried films or residue left after mechanical removal can be cleaned up with with a petroleum solvent such as mineral spirits (paint thinner).

Answer: 
If you have floating hardwood floors do not seal the gap between the trim and the floor.
The easiest place for mice to enter is where the kitchen sink drain line enters the wall. There is normally a gap there where mice can enter. If the gap is small this caulk will seal it. If the gap us more than 1/4" wide I would seal it with a spray foam.

Answer: 
While the product will bond to those materials and is appropriate for sealing the joint as described to prevent the passage of air/moisture. The product does not contain any ingredients that would make it effective for stopping rodents or boring insects.

Alex Plus 10.1 oz. All-Purpose Caulk Clear is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from pretty good stuff This is a very good product. It should be know that in the instructions it says there is a 10 minute tooling time. That doesn't work for me. at room temperature I'll run about 10' of of a straight bead, less for more detailed work, before tooling it. Once even a slight skin has formed you wont get a nice clean face. For deep cracks I recommend not filing the whole void, fill less than a 1/4" or so if you can. This will greatly reduce the amount of shrinkage you'll get. If you want to fill deep voids plan on doing 2 or more coats with a day or more dry time between them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alex Plus is my first choice Alex Plus has been my first choice all-purpose caulk for decades, first in New Jersey where rain and humidity where the primary exterior challenges, and now in north-central Nebraska where temperature extremes and intense sun are the challenges. I consistently get excellent results. My first and most often repeated lesson as an apprentice was, "Understand your medium." Wood moves. Some species more than others. Some environmental conditions cause more movement than others. That's the basic understanding the wood medium part. Caulks dry differently, adhere differently, and harden or remain flexible differently. As long as one understands and selects the right medium for the job, and matches media that are complementary, there will be success. But when one attempts to bind up a board and batten wall with caulk, for instance, product failure and dissatisfaction are bound to follow. The board and batten system was designed to accommodate the movement of the wide boards, so let them move, or find a caulk that cures with the elasticity of a glob of chewing gum on hot pavement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have built a 10' giraffe with Alex Plus Caulk Plus My friends said I couldn't have a giraffe. So I just decided to build a 10' giraffe. I have used SEVERAL tubes of Alex Plus chalking so I named my giraffe "Alex", I'm actually on my 4th case of Alex Plus caulking. He is so awesome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not recommend Used this product on the exterior of a shower door threshold, between metal and tile. I had noted the 7-14 day dry time, but assumed this was a worst case; i.e. high humidity, cool temps, large bead, etc. Needed only a very thin bead, and in 12 hours it was "clear". Even so, I waited a full 24 hours to test, at which point it matched the shower's original clear sections. Failed immediately, but the good news is that it really does clean up easily with water, so all I'm out is a couple of hours of my time and the cost of a tube.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not buy this product ever again. I have destroyed 2 tubes of Dap Alex. The caulking gun has pressed the plunger further into the tube without allowing any caulk to come out of tip. Yes, after cutting open the tip to accurate size of need. Still need to complete the job, but this might not be the best product to use. Frustrated. Pfooey!!!! Will be returning product to store where purchased. If they don't take back, then returning directly to DAP.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy Something Else This caulk go on white and is supposed to dry clear. Used this over 2 weeks ago and it still hasn't turned completely clear. The edges are clear but the center of the bead I applied is still white. Looks horrible. Now I have to dig it all out and replace with REAL clear caulk. Save your time and money and buy something else. Very disappointed with this company and product.
Date published: 2016-10-11
Rated 1 out of 5 by from not good It continues to run from the caulk gun forever after releasing the application trigger. I was not satisfied with one application so I had to apply a second after waiting 48 hours for it to dry. Its not something I will buy again or would recommend you buy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product sucks. We did three apartments in Santa Monica, over three hundred windows. More than three quarters of them leaked with the last passing of rain. When I spoke to the company about it, they basically said it was my problem. Never again will I use this product.
