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.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Too thin. I'm only 1/4 thru my first tube and I've had enough. It's far too thin. It goes on easy but even with the gun released, it keeps flowing from the tube. I'm getting something else. The 50 year doesn't run like this. Other reviews mention needing a second application. Based on how thin it is, that doesn't surprise me. I don't have time to do things twice! Anybody want my second tube? July 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Goes on white but dries clear? I didn't realize it was going to go on white and then take a week or more to dry clear. Better labelling would have been helpful. I don't have time to wait for it to turn clear so it's going back to the store. July 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by what happen to brillant white The white color dries light gray not white. The brilliant white dries white. Do away with white and only make brilliant white. If looking to save cash. July 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ruined my paint hob Followed all directions on tube the caulk has started to crack even before the project was finished. Disapointment on several levels. Besides looking badly now I have to repair and repaint never mind the additional costs in materials and time. July 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointing, ruined our whole paint job Applied to seams on a board and batten exterior of an older house doing one wall at a time have not even finished the project and caulking on the first walls have allready started to crack and pull apart. It has ruined the entire paint job July 16, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Excitement to frustration. I was excited to get this product for sealing around my exterior home; window, trim, etc. Excellent flexibility (I need that for cedar siding!), adheres to wide range of surfaces, shrinks less (in my opinion it shouldn't shrink at all), waterproof (oh, a must --- I live in the Pacific NW!), etc. What could be wrong about this product? Oh, joy! Grinch time --- there it is in small print in 2 different sections; "Caulk ...dries clear in 7 - 14 days" and "Allow to dry clear before painting" (Seriously? 14 days?). So, when it is cured, it is clear. In 14 days. Really?!?! But the real kicker is "Don't apply when rain/freezing temps, are forecasted before full cure can occur." And, based on their label, that is 7 to 14 days. So, if there is a chance of rain within 2 weeks and you want to caulk, seal, and paint your home --- don't buy this product. Wishing now I would have purchased the "....paint within 30 minutes. Can apply in rain..." alternative brand. :( July 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by doesn't always cure well I have used this silicone in the past but I think I am going to use something else from now on. I bought two tubes of it to do my kitchen I only did a little bit because I ran out of time but I am glad I only did that little bit. It cured for 3 days and had dried clear on the third day a few drops of water got on it and it turned white again and turned to soup. I had to scrape it out and redo. On the plus side it is very easy to work with when applying but the negative is it seems to have a very long and sensitive cure time. The GE product is more expensive and not as easy to work with but at least it actually cures in a reasonable time. June 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good stuff I have used this stuff for a few years now and don't have any complaints. It's clear-rubber silicone which will attract dirt and will come off of porcelain and metal things if scrubbed or rubbed- it's rubber basically. It is meant to be applied to a clean DRY surface without ANY oily reidues or it won't stick. They make expensive sealers for other things like that. I use it mainly on my sheds of 2x4 and OSB-plywood to seal around all the seams and gaps and it works great. Currently have had single applications last up to 3-years without a 2nd coat. I generally run about a 3/8-inch bead slightly pressed into grooves, seams, and embutments and works great. Never had what everyone else calls "shrinkage". Use the right caulk for the right job.
