This stuff is good because it is versatile. It can be used in the bathtub as well as drier areas. Wherever any caulk is being replaced though, the absolute imperative need to do thing is to make sure the place that is getting the caulk is not only clean, but more importantly, that it is dry. Installing any kind of caulk to a seam that has had water soaking it needs to dry completely. If you install it with too much moisture present behind the surface, caulks will not ever fully dry because they dry from the top or outside to inside. If too much latent moisture gets trapped behind that curing barrier it will eventually force its way out, bubbling that short lived nice looking caulking job you did. So how do you get all that moisture out? Use a leaf blower on high setting for about fifteen minutes. No don't do that, just kidding, use a hair dryer until you think it is dry. NOOOO don't do that either. Do this though, get some denatured alcohol when you are buying your caulk, it is very near the same place. Only use denatured because it has 0% water added to it. Put some denatured onto a rag that is lint free while wearing any kind of gloves like nitrile or latex gloves and sop the places you cleaned and are going to put any new caulk on. Then take another clean dry cloth and wipe up anything wet. The alcohol will bind with the water and excess moisture better than anything else and most of it will evaporate away before you get the chance to dry it with that dry rag. Double check once more for any wet looking spots and if it looks clean and dry, caulk away. Depending on how your caulk cures you can clean up any booboos with either a water moistened rag or a rag moistened with mineral spirits.

Review 2 for Polyseamseal 10 fl.-oz. White Tub and Tile Adhesive Caulk
I've used Polyseamseal Tub and Tile only a little, in a tub/shower stall, at the point where the tub meets the tiled walls. It went on more smoothly than several other sealants I experimented with, and gave adequate work time to shape and smooth it further, without drying too soon and crinkling as I smoothed it out, as some sealants do. After two years, it still looks new, hasn't discolored, hasn't developed mold, hasn't shrunk, still feels tough, and hasn't come loose at all. Highly recommended. I wish it came in a few more colors though, including a more yellowish color to match a kitchen countertop I'd like to use it on.
Pros: Very Adhesive, Even Application, High Quality of Material, Easy to Apply, Good Coverage, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Protection, Looks Great, Looks High End

No, I do not recommend this product.
This product is horrible and doesn't live up to any of its promises. After cleaning away the old caulk that had been in my bathtub/shower for 3 years and was starting to mold, I dried the area completely and applied this product (10 oz. Loctite White Polyseamseal Tub & Tile Kitchen & Batch Sealant). I gave it over 48 hours to dry, when the directions only call for 24 hours. Application was as expected and I had a nice smooth finish. However, within a week the seems were cracking. It has now been a month and it's growing mold and mildew and water is leaking through. Not quite the water-tight bioguard mold and mildew resistant product advertised on the label. I would NOT recommend this product.
Pros: Easy to Apply
Cons: grows mold and mildew quickly, shrinks and cracks when drying, poor protection
