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
  • 30 minute water-ready
  • 24 hour cure time

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.

Some clear caulks are not really clear when they dry. When this caulk sets is it "water clear" or does it have a milky appearance?

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Working This product worked as expected in my bathroom remodel October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It worked for me I used this to caulk around my counter top and new sink in our kitchen. It worked well. Went on easy but I didn’t nearly use the whole tube (kind of a waste). It dried clear and has been holding up without any issues or mold. It seems to be a little bit costlier than some other clear caulk carried in the store and to be honest, it doesn’t seem to work any better (or worse). I’m not sure I would use it again given the extra cost. October 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best product in this category. I would say that GE's Silicone II 10.1 oz. Kitchen and Bath Caulk is the greatest of all in this category. This GE's 100% Silicone is 100% Waterproof and it a great product., and I love it because it also has Mold free product protection. October 4, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mold grows on it within a year I've applied this caulk around my bathtub tiles multiple times in the last few years. It seems to go on well, but mold always starts growing on it in less than a year. October 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Great We used this to seal our countertops. It went on smooth with no problems. September 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by don't waste time or money. I originally purchased 3 tubes of this nonsense, I used one tube on the bathrooms when we moved into our new house. Fast forward to today, a little over a year later. It's all discolored and moldy, so I scrape it all off, then grab one of my other tubes, get not even a 1/10 of the way through, and the tip falls right off and makes a silicone nigmare mess. Promptly threw it and the other one in the trash. Save your money, use the Alex plus, kitchen and bath, should have never stayed in the first place. What garbage!!! August 28, 2016
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 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not as clear as expected This product was not as clear as I expected. Black counter top and dark glass back splash and this product came up cloudy looking- not as transparent as i expected at all. August 25, 2016
