So... I re-caulked around the entire perimeter (and bench... and door) of our master bathroom shower yesterday. Or, rather, because caulking is not my forte, I paid a handyman to do it. :) He did a fantastic job. But then, in a haze of sleep-deprived idiocy, my husband took a shower this morning. We estimate the caulking job had about 14 hours to cure, though it may have been 15.

At this point, what should we do? Is there any way for us to tell whether using the shower has caused water to seep behind the new caulk and/or ruined the caulk permanently? Help!

I think it will be ok as long as it had enough time to develop that "skin" and wasn't touched and deformed.

I usually add a day or two just to make sure -- and so I don't have to redo it -- but you're probably ok
