Renew your bathroom sealants
Damaged sealants are an annoying detail. Renewing them is easier than ever!
Do you have bad looking sealants in your bathtub? Sealing is too complex, cleaning is a short term solution and calling a craftsman is too expensive? Reality changed! You can have your joint sealants like new without removing the old ones! You must admit you never thought it would be so easy to seal a bathtub and get rid of these annoying details!
WHAT YOU NEED
- Sealant (e.g. UniBond RE-NEW)
Prepare the surface
Use all that excess energy to renew your bathroom and clean the old joints for better results. The sealant joint to repair must be clean, dry, and free from oils, grease, dust and loose particles. Surfaces can be degreased with an appropriate cleaner. Excessive moldy joints should first be cleaned with a sponge or with an anti-mould spray. Then thoroughly rinse with water and dry the surface with a cloth.
Apply the product
It may be hard to believe, but you don't need to remove the old joints! You just need to apply the product properly. Remove the cap of the sealant (e.g. UniBond RE-NEW) and position the applicator at an approximate 90º angle to the joint, so that the edges of the applicator have full contact with both faces of the joint. Squeeze out the product while moving the applicator along the joint making sure that the product is in full contact with the sealant to be coated. Couldn't be easier!
Level the product
If necessary, you can pass the applicator over the entire joint again to smooth the sealant. Don't press the bottle so that the product doesn't come out. See how the white sealant covers the existing joints, no matter the color!
You can repeat it, if needed
If you're not 100% satisfied with the application, you can remove the product immediately and start the application all over again. All you need is a wet tissue and the product will be easily removed. You can clean the bottle applicator the same way.
Let it dry
When you feel the application is perfect, let the product dry. The product should preferably be left to dry for several hours (at least 6 hours) before any contact with water. Avoid contact with cleaning agents in the first 24 hours after application. Take this time to relax and go on a day-trip with your friends!
It was really easy to learn how to seal a bathtub, wasn't it? Now that you have your bathtub joints like new, if you have a small crack on the sink, it's the time to fix it too. Afterwards, sit back and enjoy relaxing moments in your renewed bathroom.
