Silicone II 2.8 oz. White Kitchen and Bath Caulk

$3.98 /each

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 recaulking 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
  • no caulk gun needed

Answer: 
No - the clear does not change to white. Once you cut open the tip, simply squeeze out the first droppings for 3 seconds over a garbage can and it will eventually turn white. I GUARANTEE it.

I am returning it to HD. As another reviewer suggested, I will ask HD to open the replacement to confirm that it is white before leaving the HD premises, saving me another hour wasted on top of the hour I have already wasted. HD should pull all this product from the shelves, send it back, get a new order and test open a few. If the new batch isn't 100%, find another supplier. Read Less

Answer: 
No. I recently bought a tube marked white and the product came out clear and stayed that way. I bought the same product at Lowes and asked the guy working the paint center to test and a little clear fluid came out first but it was followed by the white caulk.
GE must have sent out some mis-packaged product to Home Depot.

I have discovered that the caulk is very adhesive so it should have no problem with real marble.

Answer: 
It works great for sealing against water intrusion. Make sure that the surface is clean and free from oils and solvents.
Let it cure for 24 hours before heavy use.

Answer: 
The caulk is a strong sealant. It will readily seal gaps between your sink and the area you are installing it into. The caulk has strong adhesive properties and can be smoothed when first applied with warm water and your finger. It washes up easily with soap and water.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy with great results! I've never before caulked a bathroom tub. That being said, after doing it and seeing my results, you'd never think this was my first attempt! The product is super easy to use, inexpensive, and dries quickly. Product states cure time is 6 hours. I did wait overnight to use the shower just to be on the safe side, however it was dry to the touch after 30 mins as also stated on the product. So I have no doubt it would've been cured after the specified 6 hours. Give this product a try - it really was super simple! April 23, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by poor packaging the caulk squeezes out from the back of the tube which makes it very untidy and a one-time use. January 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First Impressions This was my first time using silicone; as I've only needed to use acrylic latex for interior wood trim products. This is also the first time I've used a small tube instead of a standard cartridge. I've heard all kinds of warnings about how tough silicone is, and that's only partially true. While it isn't as easy as latex, the actual application wasn't problematic. I first used this to re-caulk the end of a laminate bathroom countertop that sits against a wall. After removing the old caulk, there was more space to fill than I thought--so I needed to apply a couple times to fill the gap. I first tooled with my finger and then used a caulk-smoothing tool to finish it out. I also re-caulked the sink; which was more challenging due to the space. Checked back 24 hours after to check/touch and it looked great--the finish is bright white and very glossy. September 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Only Caulk to use!!! I have done many different caulking projects around the house and this has by far been the best I have ever used! I prefer the smaller tube as it was easier to manage. As I have a significant gap between my bathtub and the tile (it's an old house and cannot afford redo at this time) I have found myself having to redo the seal as it kept getting moldy. Not with this stuff. I used the clear as the main filler, and then used the white for the top layer. It came out looking so good, I ended up redoing the entire bathroom so it would all look great. Easy clean up, quick drying and shower ready super quick. The odor while applying is also significantly less than any other caulk I have used. December 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well... but BEWARE: FIRST COUPLE OF INCHES COME OUT CLEAR! I bought a tube to seal the joint between tub and tiled wall and wanted the very best I could get in a small tube.. bought the GE Silicone II in white. The first inch or so that came out of the tub was clear, so I then read the reviews ... added my complaint to the list and took it back to HD. We pulled another from the rack and the Paint Dpt rep allowed me to cut it open: same thing: first inch was clear. He said they sell a ton of it and so was mystified. I squeezed another inch to inch and a half out of both tubes and after the first two inches +-, it was white.. So if you buy this, be sure to squeeze several inches out before concluding it is all clear. I am not saying that others did not receive mismarked product, just that two of two I opened where OK, with a small amount of clear at the front. My tub joint seal took less than half a tube, so saved $4 from having to buy a gun tub, and it was easier to apply in the corners with the small plastic tube. February 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finally, a consumer friendly silicone caulk! Silicone caulks for the general consumer have always been a bad mix. The caulks are stringy and requires some expertise in applying. This caulk is very user friendly and not stringy. The handy applicator means anybody with a fairly steady hand can get professional results quick. If your tub needs a recaulk, remove the old with a Husky Painters Tool available at HD. Clean the area of any debris, mold, soap, etc and make sure it's dry. Cut the applicator tip at about a 30 degree angle and apply the GE Silicone II caulk. You're done! Takes about an hour including dry time from the cleaning. If you want to finger smooth the caulk, use water on your finger or WD-40 first. The caulk is shower ready in 3 hours but if you can wait overnight the better. July 23, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Be sure it's white before you leave the store Like a couple of other reviews, it was clearly marked as white and came out clear. Allowed to dry and it remained clear. So went back to Home Depot, got a refund, and they didn't have any other purely silicone white caulk brands in a small tube. I went to Lowes and saw they had the same GE Silicone II in white. I asked the guy in the paint department to open it and test. This one had a little clear fluid (which I assume is part of the mix) that came out first then the while caulk came out. So this might only be some bad packaging by GE on these tubes that went to Home Depot. I'd recommend asking someone in the paint department to open and make sure it's white before you leave the store. Thank goodness I didn't caulk everything expecting it to eventually turn white when it dried. Other than that, the product seems to work well. It went on smoothly (no stringing). I was able to smooth with my fingertips or a tool I purchased. Seems like good stuff but can only give it a 1-star when the tubes are mis-marked and I blow 1 1/2 hours returning it and then having to go to another store to replace. February 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by When it says "White" I expect it to be White I bought this caulk to use in my shower. The container clearly said it was white but the contents was clear. I took it back to the store for a refund but, rather than risk getting another mis-labeled container I opted to buy a different brand. GE needs to recall all of their mis-labeld containers if they want to avoid more unhappy customers. September 11, 2014
