Use this product all the time, easy to use and love the finished results. Used for caulking bath tubs, counter tops. trim/molding, etc..... But, the last case I got (12-5.5 oz tubes) every single tube blew out the back of the squeeze tube when I was using it. Makes a mess and just adds valuable time to the project.

I'm on my 4th attempt resealing my bathtub. I chose DAP because it has been easy to use for other projects. It worked well until 3 weeks after application, then it began to disintegrate and peel. I'm trying to sell my house and can't trust that it won't peel any longer. Now that the tube is out, I'm in need of new product suggestions.

    Best used for caulking new or old trim to walls. Fast to apply and paints over really well. Used for this application it's a great product, but I wouldn't rely on this for a bathtub, get some silicone for that!

    Comments about Dap® Kwik Seal Plus® Kitchen & Bath Adhesive Caulk (18526):

    I have been using the white caulk bathroom, kitchen, and tile product for over 30 years, it applies smoothly, cleans up beautifully with a perfect seal with a moistened clean rag. The flawless, seal will last for decades resisting mildew and discoloring; so long as as the surface behind is solid and remains undisturbed. just dislike the weak packaging at the back of the hand-held tube where the back end seam blows out making an extra mess that can double the clean up. -2 for back-end leaks and shortened tube life.

        I love this product, I use it to repair things like shoes and things that have flexibility that would otherwise come apart with use.
        It's great for cracks in walls too.
        When I need to stick something I reach for my DAP.

          I reviewed this product not long ago and made a mistake by not giving this product time to cure. My concern was it was supposed to clear but came out of the tube white. I also remarked that "I now have a white stripe on my floor". Well, 24 hours later this product cured to a very professional looking clear bead. I have since used it on several other projects in my home and will continue to use.

                  I expected this to be clear. The tube is labeled "clear", upc# 7079818546. I used this between tile and a wood floor. Once I saw it was white I thought maybe it would dry clear. Wrong. Now I have this white stripe on my bathroom floor.

                    It's been 3 days now and the product is still "gummy" - in all areas applied. Disintegrating and falling apart. I was very careful to clean and dry the area around the tub thoroughly so there's no way that moisture or inability to adhere play any roles. Now, after seeing other reviews, I wish I hadn't purchased.

                      I purchased clear for my shower. Directions state it applies white but dries clear within 7-14 days! Really? If I had read this before, I would not have purchased it to begin with. Be that as it may the product never dried clear and its been months! Now I have to go back and scrape out the caulk. Only this time I will use clear silicone.

                      Dang! Wish I had read the reviews before I began to seal my sink. This product is a a nightmare sticky Elmer's glue experiment. I had to really hustle for an hour to get the product off my sink and custom made countertop. Crazy gluey sticky mess. Was able to salvage and bought some old school clear silicone.

                          After three days I noticed ot was all cracked and today ot looked like it was melting down the tub. Not impressed at all

                                  I removed the previous seal and let the shower dry for a week. I put on this product, and let it dry for 7 days. 3 showers later, it is white and watery and now is a huge mess in the shower that I have no idea how to clean up. You are better off sealing with toilet paper.

                                    I used the hand squeezed tubes for caulking on several home projects. Each tube sprung a leak at the end of the tube squirting caulk down walls and onto flooring. Though advertised as easy to clean up, it was not and left a film on my walls that was difficult to remove. Additionally the caulk was so runny that it dripped. I no longer have confidence in this product and will steer clear of it. I contacted the company and they were not concerned about the defect in their tube design.

                                        I recaulked my bathtub with this product and gave it extra time to dry. Within days of resuming shower use the caulking was disintegrating. I do not recommend this product for any use where it will be exposed to moisture regularly. Very disappointed.

                                        Does not set correctly. Even after leaving for 2 days, it just washes away. Many reviews here and on retailer websites all say the same thing. So why is DAP still selling this? Fix the formulation, or yank the old products, or whatever. Stop wasting your customers time and money.

                                        I had the same issues as another reviewer, thus why I got on the site to see what this product is actually for... Applied as per the directions, let set the 24hrs... DON'T USE THIS FOR A SHOWER OR ANYWHERE WATER WILL TOUCH IT. It is in no way waterproof and I wouldn't call it a silicone. Wherever water has touched it it has gone back to its original state if not worse. I have to now wet it apparently, and wipe it off and go buy some Mono or something that is actually a waterproof silicone.

                                          Had a small hole between my bathtub and wall. Needed a waterproof sealant to cover it. Bought Kwik Seal and used it eleven (11) times in twenty four (24) days on the same hole. The product was applied properly each time on clean and dry surface, and left to dry for days each time. Product keeps on washing away whenever it gets wet by the shower. Turns to a milky powder liquid and disappears down the drain every time. The little whole that I had seems to be getting bigger because of all the cleaning and applying of this product.

                                              I bought this product to replace the old caulking in my shower. I made sure to let the area dry before putting down the new caulking. Let it dry for the 36 hours it recommended. But after 3 shower uses its starting to break down. Even though it says waterproof, it's definitely not. Now have to buy new caulking to replace this stuff.

                                              We just purchased this product in clear in order to caulk between our tub and floor. It came out white so we were thinking maybe it would dry clear. Nope, still white. Our nice flooring and tub siding is ruined. Will be calling the company to complain and ask for refund. So furious. Don't buy this.

                                                  Used it to adhere a plastic soap dish and shelf onto a PORCELAIN TILE shower wall. It worked GREAT, but my other half wants to change the location of the soap dish.
                                                  What solvent will loosen the adhesive sealant so I can remove it

                                                  I used this product to re caulk the shower pan. I laid a nice bead and let it dry for 2 days. After a week it started to crumble in spots and came unbonded. I should have read the reviews before I tried it. I tried G.E white silicon and it works great!

                                                      I caulked around the inside of the shower stall. I cleaned, let completely dry, applied the caulking material. It looked good. waited for a day to let it cure. It became hard and not flexible like silicone. Took showers for two days, did not notice any difference. The third day when I was preparing to take a show, it noticed it started to crack. I will stick to pure silicone which is flexible.

                                                        I'm on my 4th attempt resealing my bathtub. I chose DAP because it has been easy to use for other projects. It worked well until 3 weeks after application, then it began to disintegrate and peel. I'm trying to sell my house and can't trust that it won't peel any longer. Now that the tube is out, I'm in need of new product suggestions.

                                                            The product itself was good, I could have given a 4-5 star. The packaging design was a major failure, giving zero if that was an option. The end of the tube that was to deliver the beautiful even bead was designed to be removed twisting off, but wouldnt stay on the container under pressure and split in the first minute. Had to puncture the inner seal, had to use a pair of pliers to rip it off. If DAP would put a tip that was sealed to the container, and an easy puncture inner seal, I could have been able to use it. Instead I had to use rubber gloves, squeeze out the product, then in a messy swipe with my finger apply to the area. And of course it is not water clean up. Also meaning the product went half as far as should be. Thank goodness this project wasnt in a place that mattered on how it looked, what a mess. Of course I could have used mineral spirits and a lot of time to make it pretty, but was expecting a much easier project and didnt have it on hand. Wont buy this again until they redesign the tube.

                                                              What is up with this stupid product. I prepped the area as I always have done (I'm no beginner to caulk)- I even waited 2 days to be sure there was no moisture when applying. The teeny print on the back indicated that you only needed to wait 24 hours before exposing to moisture. I waited a little longer than that, and nope- was not dry, and I am now up the creek without a paddle. Thanks for nothing, DAP

                                                              This product holds up well, I like that it is silliconized, the drawback is that it is very sticky. My crew complained about it being sticky but in the end it gets the job done and avoids call backs.
