Sanded Caulk or 100% Silicone


Hello, I have been a long time lurker and have received much information/advice from this site.

I just tiled my tub surrond and caulked the inside corners with sanded caulk from Custom Building. Is it okay to use this acrylic based product for the gap between the tub and tile, or should I use normal 100% white silicone caulk?

Thanks for your advice!

If it's white, I would go with the silicone, harder to apply neatly, but will outlast and outperform the latex based ones.
