SILICONE CAULK

NOTE: Before applying any caulk, scrape the joint clean.

Description: This comes in many colors and is the only household caulk that is available in clear form (except for hot-melt glue, which also may be used as caulk). It applies clear and dries clear.

Buying information: Silicone caulk is the best caulk available -- and is also much more expensive than the others. It will stick to almost anything. Unlike most other caulks, standard silicone cannot be painted, though silicone you can paint exists as well.

How-to hint: Silicone is easy to work with. After applying, you can smooth it with a finger covered with plastic film (such as plastic wrap) and dipped in water -- but only within two minutes of application. After this it starts to set and can't be worked easily.
