How To Save Water How to reduce water usage Whether indoor or outdoor, there are lots of ways to be smart about water usage. And there are some simple actions that can make a big difference to your water bill.

Project Overview

It's a relatively easy job to use silicone to seal the edges of your shower screen. The challenge is working out how to put the silicone on so that it not only does the job but also looks nice and neat. This video shows you all the tricks you need to know to give your silicone a professional finish. Continue to Step-by-step instructions.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Apply silicone sealant to the gap
2 Use sugar soap to clean up remaining silicone sealant
  • Step 1. Apply silicone sealant to the gap

    Once you’re sure that your shower surfaces are clean and dry, run a bead of silicone along the gap, to completely cover it. Don’t worry if it looks a bit rough. Use an icy pole stick to scrape off any excess, wiping the stick on a rag as you go. The icy pole stick does two jobs – it removes the excess silicone, plus it pushes silicone down into the gap to improve the seal. 
  • Step 2. Use sugar soap to clean up remaining silicone sealant

    Spray sugar soap along the newly sealed joint and wipe it down smoothly with a cloth. To get the best results, hold the cloth onto the joint with consistent pressure and wipe downwards in one fluid motion. Once you’ve done that, go back to clean up any bits you’ve missed.

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos.
