    White latex caulk

    Hey Tuna, I would first try "stripsol" it works well on most latex products, or I would sand it. If you want stripsol call sunbrite 770-277-6363 it's like $25.00 bucks a gallon (not cheap) but works pretty well. sanding is cheaper and never fails. good luck Chris Detter/ Sunbrite
