Help! The caulking in our shower has turned black! I've tried to remove it with everything from softscrub, to tilex, to bleach. Do you know any time-tested cleaning secrets, techniques or magic potions I can use to make that shower caulking white again?
Getting the caulking white again is a hard job. I am not sure what the best remedy is. A long time ago we had that problem and Jack decided that he was going to clean it up. He put on rubber gloves and mixed clorox and some water together, put a mask over his nose and mouth and started. I begged him to stop but he said he was going to fix it. Well the end was that the rubber gloves melted and he had to take them off, the skin on his hands got burned and he had to go to the doctor and it took 6 weeks for his hands to heal.
I would not recommend anyone to do that job except someone who is experienced in that sort of work . Look in the yellow pages for someone who can do it or maybe a plumber can recommend someone.
Certainly don't do it yourself.
