  5. Spray the area with Selleys Rapid Mould Killer to eradicate any residual mould & mildew
  6. Rinse the area with water and allow to dry completely
  7. Apply Selleys No Mould (read instructions on back of pack), ensuring sealant is pushed into the joint

Handy Tips

  • Selleys No Mould will be shower ready in 1 hour after application.
