Caulking your kitchen is essential in helping to prevent leaks and water damage. Plus, it can make your most used room look a whole lot newer and refreshed.
Before applying Flex Shot, you’ll need to make sure that any old caulk is removed. To do this, you can use a caulk remover and razor scraper. Just run the caulk remover along the old caulk to remove it and use a razor scraper to get rid of any remaining bits.
Once all the caulk has been removed, you’ll need to thoroughly clean the area to ensure your surface is free of dirt, mildew, or debris. You can use rubbing alcohol or vinegar to clean, as these will help remove any mold or mildew. After cleaning, grab a drop cloth, and wipe the area completely dry. Flex Shot works on wet surfaces, but it works optimally on dry ones.
Flex Shot includes an extension tube. You can screw the tube on the end of the Flex Shot to help you apply it, especially in hard-to-reach areas like corners. Cut the extension tube to your liking: cutting close to the base will dispense a thicker line of Flex Shot, whereas cutting towards the tip would make a thinner line.
Press down on the nozzle and distribute Flex Shot to the areas you are caulking. When you are done, dispense a small amount out of the end of the tube, replace the cap and allow it to dry. This will form a plug and prevent the remaining Flex Shot from drying out. When you want to re-use the Flex Shot, remove the plug before use.
Once you’ve sealed the area, run your index finger along the caulk to smooth it out, making sure it fills every gap, crack, and hole along the surface. Then, wipe away any excess product. Flex Shot only takes 20 minutes to dry to touch, but allow 24 to 48 hours to cure completely.
And now, you have a watertight seal for years to come, thanks to Flex Shot!
