Caulk doesn't stick to stainless steel sink
Help! Crisis! I re-caulked my stainless steel kitchen sink undermounted to granite countertop. I scraped out the old caulk then I used TSP and scrubbed the surface well with a stiff bristle brush (large toothbrush size) and rinsed thoroughly. I let it dry overnight. Then I caulked with DAP Kwik Seal Plus premium kitchen and bath adhesive sealant. I kept it dry for three days even though the label says avoid water for 24 hours. Then for a week I dried it with a towel every time I used the sink. Shortly after that the caulk came loose all around the sinks. There is no expiration date on the tube. Help! Water is leaking into my cabinet and destroying the particle board. Does caulk adhere to stainless steel? The tube does not say what surfaces it works with. Help me Obi Wan Kenobi! How do I seal my leaky sink?
