Cut it all out and start a fresh!!!!!!!! New sealant will Never will bond to old manky stuff :confused:

Quick tip, before you re-seal after getting rid of the old crap, half fill your bath with water, and leave the water in till the sealants cured this allows for the movement when you get in out and less chance of splitting.

Oh an buy a decent brand not the 1.50 tube from wilkos :rolleyes:
Absolutely buy some decent sanitary sealant or it will be grey (if you're lucky) or black in a few months time. Good stuff should stay shockingly white for many years.
