    Could’ve done it in less than 5 minutes just smoothing it with your finger at the same time as you’re laying the bead down

    If you were working for me, you wouldn't be.. Doing this stuff for 20 years... 1 vacuum the joint, 2 prepsol the surface, 3 cut a small tip, 4 apply 101%, 5 use toilet paper ( not a huge roll ), 6 continually wipe off excess to keep off job & out of cracks & grooves like grout etc, 7 smallest joint amount necessary, 8 use your fingers & nails, 9 about a quarter of the time, 10 4 times better job finish. Stick to selling silicone mate...

    He didn't use up the entire roll of paper towels for the job. Taking shortcuts like that is how my caulking job ended up setting the house on fire and rendering me paralyzed from the neck down.

    far too much product applied. Used no tape, those tools he's using are useless, we soon got over those. Bacteria in the finger tip grooves? I'm remembering the messes I produced till I figured it out. So much to talk about , prep for example. You really have to know gobs of info on prepping alone. Caulking is not an after thought. Backer rod anyone? Almost forgot, silicone is as a matter of fact, the only caulk to use in a bathroom project. Silicone doesn't give a squat what you think you know you can do.

    8mm radius ? no mate, use the smallest radius you can get away with - say 3 or 4mm - anything more is not functional just messy

    If you use a sponge to press it down instead of using your finger, it will be just one trip going over.

    Pay attention to the caulk gun. The gun he has makes the job a lot better. You see the cheap one's in the store and they don't compare to this gun he has.
