As bathroom fitters, we do alot of siliconing. The standard of our installations is high and our customers expect a very high standard in our finishing....Using the fugi makes any silicone job neat and easy. It is very useful for difficult areas as the silicone can be neatly wiped away leaving a neat and tidy seal and finish. Once you use this product you will never use anything else for sealing..

The only thing that I would caution against is using the saw tooth tool to remove old silicone because if, like me, you are not in complete control of it you can scratch other surfaces very easily. I resorted to using a sharp wood chisel to remove the rest of the old silicone.Don't forget to wear safety gear such as goggles, masks, and respirators before you begin. This method might not use chemicals, but grinding up mastic into dust can create dangerous particles to breathe. Using commercial-grade tools can risk bodily harm as well. I'd highly recommend this product, especially for all DIY sealant jobs around the home. Easily cleaned. Reduces silicone waste too. Really no mess...and hassle free to use. Handy box to keep profile tools clean, accessible and damage free!

Walk-behind concrete floor grinders will help you do the job standing up rather than all your knees all day. They'll also wield considerably more power than hand-held models. Acetone is flammable and gives off toxic fumes, so handle with care. Unlike ammonia, you don't have to mix acetone with water. Instead, pour acetone into a tray for dipping your coarse bristle brush. Similar to the boiling water method, the ironing method applies heat to the glue. The hope is that the heat will make the glue gum up and be easier to scrape off. As an inexperienced diyer using this kit was relatively easy. You can achieve amazing results but if you've never been good with silicone sealant I recommend you watch a couple of you tube clips of a guy using this exact profiling tool. He explains everything and shows exactly what you should or shouldn't do. I found it invaluable. Finally, a tool to get behind the very tight fitting taps would have been the icing on the cake. You'll want to work in small sections to keep yourself safe from burns. Put a small pot of water on the stove or in an electric kettle and pour the boiled water on a select area. Make sure you're pouring the water very close to the floor so that you don't get burns from splashes.For general-purpose sanitary sealing such as baths, sinks and shower units, Dow Corning 785 is a great option. Fill the bath with cold water up to the halfway point. This is ESSENTIAL if you have a flimsy plastic bath that flexes. If you don’t do this, when you go to fill the bath for the first time, the mastic may tear or split as the bath flexes under the weight of all the water. You can smooth off the mastic with saliva on your finger, the more saliva the better but make sure you don’t put your finger in your mouth as the silicone may be harmful if swallowed.
