    "Use a trader - or don't cut the nozzle at a 45.angle use like about 6 mm opening on the nozzle and use a decent silicone tool with a tiny bit of detergent in the water to wipe over the top with the tool"

    "hi there, is Teddy here

    The best way to silicone the bath and kitchen is to do all after cleaning and dusting, Make sure tops are all free of water and dust, use the waterproof silicone and cut a bigger hole on the nozzle than the line you want to make after putting the silicon use a silicon tool that you can buy from Selco it has 4 corners that are not the same they have number on each angle so use any size of your choice but above 10 it will give you a nice smooth finish.

    hope this helps,

    "Make sure there is space for the silicone to penetrate joints and create a seal. Use a silicone tool to create a professional finish. Silicone tool available at b and q, screwfix and tool station"

    "Best way is to use anti-mold silicone for kitchen and bathroom applications. This should be applied on dry, grease free surface. Then it's best to use soap with water and spray it over, then just use your silicone application tool, to finish the surface and take out excess amount of silicone. Done"

    "When siliconing a bath, be sure to fill it with water first. This will stop any cracking or splitting. When wiping silicone into corners it’s handy to have some soapy water to dip your finger/ tool into. This stops it from sticking to your finger/ tool and leaves a smooth finish. Also, baby wipes or wet wipes are ideal for cleaning up unwanted silicone and getting it off your hands. Hope that helps!

    "Use a diluted soapy water solution to stop the silicone from sticking to an application tool for the best result and use a good quality silicone we only use Wurth sanitary grade. It’s not the cheapest but I’ve never had any issues and I’ve used it for years."
