Used in our shower. Waited 48 hours to dry. Starts dissolving right away! Each quick shower we took ended up with a pile of white water on our bathroom floor leaked through the holes that developed from the dissolving.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 80sGuy This is the worst and bottom barrel of all caulk
DAP should stick to making dry-wall sealants as I have never have problems with them, as for caulking this product should be banned! This is the absolute worst caulk I have ever used. It will not adhere even though after the 36 hour mark. Running my finger across them is like using an eraser, where I can actually see little specks being rubbed off. The worst part about it was after all the hard work is done on my tub, the thing started dissolving when exposed to water.
Luckily I still have some GE White Kitchen and Bath Caulk-It that was purchased EIGHT YEARS ago (yes that's 8 years) and managed to apply, layered another coat on top. The GE caulk dries off almost in an instant leaving a very strong and glossy sheen.

I bought this because I had a small job and didn't think I needed to buy an entire tube of caulk. I used it in my bathtub where the frame of a sliding glass door meets the tub. The product says "Premium Kitchen & Bath Adhesive Sealant". Old sealant was removed. Everything cleaned and dried before applying. Waited 3 days before going back into the tub and using the shower (the instructions recommend 24 hours). After a day I noticed water was seeping through. The second day I saw the sealant actually buckling and coming off all by itself without touching it. The last time I did this I used silicone and lasted for 6 years. This didn't last a day! Had to remove the whole thing and just ended up buying GE silicone and applied that. I will never buy anything with the name DAP on it again. I wish I had a picture of this to show how bad this product is. It's far from "Premium" and it it's no "Sealant". Stay away from this product.

I bought both a biscuit and a white tube of this product to recaulk a shower stall. After removing old caulk, wiping down surfaces, and allowing to dry for 24 hours, I started to caulk. Using this flexible tube is better than a hard caulk tube and gun, and I was able to complete the job. I allowed the caulk to then cure for 72 hours before using the stall. Some of the places I checked, the caulk was no longer tacky, and so I didn't think anything of it. After about 2 days, I noticed a small area looking like it was sagging. I checked that area, and about 4 inches of caulk had just turned to goo, and could be wiped away with my finger. I rechecked the entire stall, and found that 60% of it was cured and fine, and 40% was turning into a mess. some of it the white, some of it the biscuit. The strange thing is that each color I used were all from the same tube. Thinking I had possibly purchased (or used) an old tube, I purchased a brand new one, cleaned out the areas, allowed to dry, recaulked, waited 72 hours, AND HAD THE SAME RESULTS! I immediately threw away all my DAP tubes, chalked it up to experience, and purchased the GE Silicon tubes to fix the problem. I don't know why HD or L continue to carry this product, as the overall experiences are so bad, and the product would make the DIYer feel as if they had done something wrong.
I recommend that HomeDepot pull this product from their shelves immediately. There are many other fine products from DAP that I would recommend, and therefore, had faith in this one. Boy was I mistaken.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Aurelio Worst Caulk I've Ever used
Used this in a bathtub, waited a full 48 hours before exposing to water, and it still failed to cure. And the bathroom was dry and had a fan going and a window open with a temperature range of 60-80°. Over a few days it formed holes in the caulk where the water dripped down, and I knew I'd have to redo the whole thing.
Three weeks after installing it, I tore it out, only to find the interior of the caulk STILL hadn't cured. After 3 WEEKS. It was goopy and took forever to remove so I could put something decent in there.
Second application of a different brand cured more in 4 hours than this stuff did in 24 hours. And this

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kitchensinkrepairs123 doesnt work, lousy
we bought the DAP kwik seal plus. for fixing caulking around our kitchen sink. tube reads premium kitchen and bath sealant, waterproof and easy clean up.
none is true.
we dried sink area. applied product. let it dry overnight >8 hrs. no water in that 8 hrs.
later we noticed that the area where water contacted this, the sealant has gone mushy, it was removable it kind of dissolved in water.
i have tried GE silicone premium caulk. works the best.
drop this sealant.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Don't EVER get this product
I never write product reviews, but I had to for this. I used both the tube kind and the smaller 5.5oz. I thought this would be an okay product because DAP makes a ton of these caulk products, but I was wrong. This product should not be used around a tub. It takes about two showers before it starts to wash away. Even if you let it cure for over the recommended time and prepare the surface like it states on the tube. What a waste of money and time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin Total waste of time
My biggest mistake was not to check the reviews on this product before I used it. After 72 hours, the product looks like it has cured, but once it gets wet it dissolves into a mess. I tried it a couple of times, and same results. I've used other DAP products, but this this DAP is garbage. Please stay away from this one. Imagine prepping a clean surface and end up with a mess just so you have to clean over again with the right caulk. Your time is worth way too much to waste like this.
