Large Porcelain Tiles for Shower Walls


So the spray soap works better than spitting on your finger?

Good job BigJim.

Aahaa, you been watching me, I am guilty of doing that a time or two.LOL Thanks Bill I appreciate that.

The only down side of this is you best have enough silicone covering all holes because once you spray it, it is all over then, it will not stick to the soapy stuff. With a good bead all you have to do is spray the stuff on the tile and your finger and zip it is done. On the larger joints I used a putty knife sprayed and this is what that looked like.

Whew, is there a way to get rid of the smell of the silicone, it has dried but man it smells so bad it gives us a headache. Can I spray something in there?

Just turn on a fan----that vinegar smell leaves pretty quick---

Glad that spray worked for you----it does make applying silicone painless----
