Silicone easy clean up
I can't count how many times I have used silicone over my adult life, and hated every one. I am a vary handy, hands on guy, but trying to work with silicone successfully is darn near impossible. If you don't get the perfect bead the first time, forget it. If you blue tape both sides and think you have outwitted the silicone, no way. Well, I wish I knew about this trick 45 years ago. When I witnessed this trick, I called my 3 plumber and 4 contractor buddies. I called two friends who own hardware stores. I contacted the guy that installed Granite Countertops in my rentals. None of them have ever heard of this trick, but thanked me profusely. One plumber had just retired and when I called him, he answered from Florida, cussing up a storm because he didn't know this for his 40 year plumbing career.
I was having a good time at a rally in Goodyear, Arizona. One of the Alpine Socal members had a local company remove 2 of his windows to remove the center fogging. When they returned with his repaired windows, they installed them, and did the worst silicone job I have ever seen. It was smeared on the full body paint job and the trim. I thought to myself, how is this guy going to get this silicone cleaned up without smearing, or possibly harming the paint. He took this product out of his truck and did the easiest clean up job I have ever see. This is the same product that my wife has under our sink. I told her it was a waste of money. Now I have it at my cabin, in the garage, in my motorhome, even in my car. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to us it. I had a couple of small leaks at the bottom of my shower stall in the Alpine. I did my usual crappy silicone job with my caulking gun. Then I whipped this magic product out and pushed the silicone deep into the gaps and then used the same product to do a spotless, residue free clean up. What, you ask, is this magic silicone solution?
