Tools you’ll need:
Bathroom sealant (there’s a variety available, including anti-mould, different colours although white is probably the safest bet in the bathroom)
An application gun (depending if you buy the cartridge tube)
Damp cloth (you might not realise why you need this at the moment, but mark my words as soon as your come into contact with silicone you will figure it out)
Craft knife (to remove old sealant)
For a general bathroom it can take up to an two hours.
Easy for DIY beginners
Always have a dust mask to hand to avoid inhaling pungent smells. A pair of rubber gloves is an ideal choice if you want to keep your hands free of rubbery sealant.

After time the white sealant around baths, showers, toilets and basins can become old, flaky and mouldy. After a long period of time it can also change colour and become yellowish. Removing and replacing old bathroom sealant can enhance the look of your bathroom straight away and make it much more inviting.
You’ll need to remove any old sealant. This can be quite quick and easy, or you may need to chip away at it – gently – until all traces are removed.
Once all the old sealant has been removed, clean the surfaces thoroughly making sure you remove any grime and grease.
Once dry, cover off the areas either side of the gap you’re going to fill, with masking tape, this is certainly a wise idea as there is no need to put sealant on top of existing sealant, it does not stick very well.
Fill the bath with water so that you allow the sealant enough flexibility to bend and stretch as necessary.
You may have to load your sealant into a cartridge gun, or it may come in a handy tube you can simply squeeze.
Cut the nozzle of the sealant and prepare to fill the gaps. Make sure the nozzle is wide enough to fill the gap generously.
Apply the sealant in slow motions, ensuring it’s packed neatly into the gap. Use single, sweeping strokes as you work your way around the gaps that need filling.
Once all the gaps have been filled check for any messy areas. Smooth these areas with a damp cloth.
Allow the sealant enough time to dry (usually a full day on any baths ), read the manufacturer’s instructions.
