Caulking

I have used different types of caulking
for kitchen and bath but after a few weeks of
showers the caulk becomes soft and runny.
I did let it dry 2 days !!!
Can anyone recommend a good brand which will stand to
numerous showers (4 showers a day) ???

Thank you

Re: Caulking

in my experience, i have never had it become runny. i am in massachusetts so i dont know what your weather is like.
all i do know is i use high quality 100% silicone in the bathrooms and around the tubs and, knock on wood, never had it leak. if this is between a tub and wall i would suggest filling the tub with water before installing the caulk and letting the caulk set up while there is weight in the tub.
