Okay I need help on caulking around my bathtub surround. A new one was put in my house and I am struggling with the seal between the surround and the tub. I have done it 2 times now and after about a month or two it starts to let go from the surround for some unknown reason. It sticks great to the actual tub but starts to pull away from the surround. I don't know if I am using the wrong caulking (which specifically says it is for tub surrounds, Its a pretty soft caulking though). I have been very picky about how I put it on also. I make sure to clean the area very well, and then I even use a degreaser to make sure it is very clean. Let it dry completely for a day and then I apply the caulking with the tub filled with water. Then I let it sit for at least 2 days before I use the shower. I don't know what else I can do but it is driving me crazy. Any advice is appreciated.
