Don't know if this is the right thread...I had a new bathroom sink installed 2 days ago and it looks great, however, the caulking around the sink is discolored, kind of dirty yellow looking. I called and asked and was told it had something to do with previous color of sink and vanity (which were gold). Is there anything I can do to clean the caulking or can I paint it?
If it is silicone caulk you can't paint it. If it is non silicone you can. Ask them what they used. They should have removed the old caulk before applying new. Poor workmanship. You can also remove it yourself and re caulk it. If it is silicone be ready for some elbow grease but this is what should be done. What color caulk did they use? Clear? White? If you can see the old through it it might be clear. Remove it if you want a nice finished look.

I believe he used clear. So is the reason its so discolored because he didn't remove all of the old caulking? I did call and haven't heard back on what type of caulking was used. I've never done this before myself...is it difficult to remove the caulking he put on and put on new caulking? Also, what is best to use to clean the smudges around the sink from the caulking? I was told not to clean around the sink for a few days to let the caulking dry properly. Thanks for any suggestions.
