Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

The shower doesn't have to be off-limits for a full day. Caulk the shower or tub with GE Silicone II Kitchen and Bath and reduce the wait time dramatically. GE Silicone II 100% Silicone adheres to a wide variety of substrates and quickly builds a tight seal that can be exposed to water as little as 30 minutes after application. Some caulk requires wait time of a full day or longer before using the shower or the caulk might wash away. Mold-free product protection helps keep the cured caulk mold- and mildew-free and looking clean for seven years, with regular cleaning. Mold is not only an unsightly and embarrassing problem to have in your bathroom, around a tub or shower, but it might also lead to health problems. Some caulk might claim limited protection, but GE Silicone II Kitchen and Bath is formulated for increased protection. 100% Silicone sealant is widely considered to be the best caulk for re-caulking and sealing around bathtubs, showers and faucets as well as other areas in your home that will be exposed to water.

  • Suitable for application on showers, bathtubs, sinks, tile, countertops and fixtures
  • 100% Silicone is 100% Waterproof
  • 7 year mold-free product protection
  • 24 hour cure time
  • 100% silicone will not shrink, crack, break down, or wash away

Answer: 
This version REQUIRES caulking gun: the 10 ounce tube fits the most common size caulk guns. No good way to push the caulk out without using the proper gun. The smaller size flexible plastic 'toothpaste' style tube is for hand use, as it can be rolled up from the end as you use it.

Answer: 
Well the specs state that in 30 minutes it should be dry to the touch and cured in 3 hours. If it hasn't by the next morning then I would remove as much as you can and take the tube back to Home Depot and exchange it for another tube. You might have just gotten a bad one. Mine did just as stated. Dried in 30 minutes and cured in 3.

Yes, I know the problem you are experiencing. Unfortunately GE Silicone caulk has an expiration date of one to two years - printed on the tube in small print and hard to see, but it is there if you look carefully.
After the expiration date it will not cure, no matter how long you wait. Actually, I have experienced that the expiration dates are very liberal. A few months before the expiration date the product becomes very iffy.
Your only option at this time is to clean-up the mess you have around your sink (and it is a mess!) and try again (with a new tube). Make sure you clean everything with a good solvent.
On a side note, I don't know why GE silicone behaves this way. I have not used many silicone brands in caulking-gun tubes, but I have used several squeeze-tubes (toothpaste-type tubes of 3 or 4 ounces) available at auto parts stores and where auto supply items are sold (some of the biggest retailers in the nation, for example). These tubes do not display an expiration date and keep perfectly useful in my giant toolbox for many years. Actually, I never had one going bad, other than after several years they may dry out if not sealed properly. The shortcoming to these tubes is that they are not available in many colors (black, clear, white, blue, and red are the only colors I know of), and they do not advertise having "antibacterial additives" for kitchen and bats (if actually these are real additives - who knows).
Good luck to you. You have a job ahead.

Answer: 
With this product, as with all other caulking products, linear footage coverage area depends on the size of the bead. It is difficult to say, in this case, because the size of bead you want will depend on the crack area you are trying to fill, as well as where you cut off the tip of the tube. Smaller areas will take less caulking and require a smaller tip, making the product last longer, covering more Read More

Answer: 
Great question Steve!
The 9.8-ounce tube contains approximately fifty linear feet.
The 2.8-ounce squeeze tube contains approximately twenty linear feet.
APPLICATION:
Cut the tip at an angle, near the end to make a smaller opening and prevent waste.
Hope this helps!

This product is clear. It does not fade or discolor, as some whites and other colors do. A lot of fading happens when the application area is not kept clean. As long as your application area is kept clean, it should retain the color around a shower.

Hello Sandy!
GA Silicone II labeled "Kitchen and Bath" is exactly the right product to keep your shower watertight and looking good for several years. When cleaned regularly, this product should remain clear for four to five years.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No more leaks We were having an issue with a leaky bathroom so we bought this product to help caulk the shower. The substance is clear and not noticeable. In the end, the leaks stopped so I couldn't be happier with this caulk. August 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Faulty tube I biught 2 tubes of this from 2 different stores. Both times the silicone came out the bottom and none came out the tip. I think the bottom plunger is faulty. Seems to be a known issue that they refuse to fix. Dont buy June 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Product Failure. Poor Manufacturing. I bought a tube and loaded into my simple caulk gun. Nothing came out the top as I pushed. Instead, the bottom cap broke and caulk was oozing out the bottom. I then foolishly bought another tube. Carefully repeated the steps with the same results. Failure for two tubes purchased at different times from different stores. October 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sealed well Sealed our cart just as we needed, water does not seep through. March 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stay away from this product! This product is horrible! We used it recently on a new bathroom vanity and granite countertop. The caulking discolored the wood and it now looks like a bright yellow highlighter. Horrible experience. Buyers please be cautious when purchasing this product. February 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lifetime? Replaced my shower 4 years ago, used this caulk. Prepped the area carefully. Made sure it was clean and dry prior to application. Four years later, it is separating from the shower pan, and I am getting water on the floor. Not really sure what to use instead, as this was supposed to be the best. February 21, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by For mounting a drop-in kitchen sink I recommend it with reservations. I have used this product many times in the past, with excellent results. However, the last time I used it to mount a sink it just refused to cure and remained a sticky mess for a couple of days, at which time I had to clean it out and re-do the job. The tube has an expiration date, with a life of about one year. The tube I had used was close to the expiration date, but not yet expired. So, beware, check the expiration date or you will make a mess of it. Incidentally, I have used automotive type silicone caulks purchased in squeeze tubes at auto parts stores. Those silicones can last in their used but properly sealed tubes for many years. Why this huge difference in products' performance? November 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple! Check the date and poke a hole! Ok, so I read the reviews that warned against buying this product close to the expiration date. What's that saying? "Learning from my mistakes makes me smart; learning from others' mistakes makes me a genius". If your product was runny and never cured or set, you are using outdated silicone caulk. If the product you are buying is close to the exp date, load all outdated tubes in a basket, grab a store employee, and tell him he needs to send it back. Then find another store that cares about customer satisfaction. So I clipped the tip of a new tube of caulk and set out to use this product with a caulking gun. I pushed and pushed. It wouldn't come out. It seemed all dried up. So I got my husband to try, and he squeezed real hard. The man's got MUSCLES! He is FIT! Too bad. Because all the caulking began oozing from the back of the tube and messed all over the gun. That debunked my "dried out" theory. Then I remembered that the gun had a long wire on the side of it, and I began putting 2+2 together. I looked closely at the nozzle and saw a dark square at the base. "Hmmm!" I thought to myself, "if I stick this wire in this hole..." BOOM! I cleaned off my gun and tube, placed the tube back on the gun, and it worked like a charm! If your caulk won't come out, even after clipping the tip, try poking a hole in the tip. The directions do say that you must poke a hole in the tip. What's that saying? "If, at first, you don't succeed, read the directions!" One more suggestion: cut the tip small. If it's not large enough, you can alway cut off more. But if you clip too much off, it will ooze all over the place and you can't undo a big clip...unless perhaps you poked a hole in the cap and taped it firmly with electrical tape. But better to do it right the first time. January 4, 2016
