Default Caulking in the kitchen ...

Last year I re-caulked the counter tops in the kitchen, now a year later all the caulking has started to turn yellow.

I used Kitchen and bath white silicone caulking, guaranteed not to mold, mildew are change color. I don't know the brand.

What went wrong ?

Thanks

You believed their claims and didnt keep the
receipt so you now can't hold their feet to the
fire and make them do a full refund and pay
for your wasted time.

They will just mail you a coupon for a free tube of caulk.
I just went through this with Duracell on their "10 year battery".
A sealed package was full of white powder and goo in about 6.

Can anyone post a suggestion on what went wrong or what type of caulk I should be using. Brand name ?

Thanks

Not necessarily. Someone here had their high end Sony
TV fail in a few years, 3 or something and initially had
Sony offer them a discount on a replacement. When
he rubbed their nose in the fact that our consumer
law requires them to do much better than that, he
got a brand new latest model from Sony for free.

They have to pay for a new device if the battery ****ed that.

Poor sad git who has to resort to Usenet and electronic devices for any
interaction as all real people run a mile to get away from you boring them
to death."

This isn't a TV but the coupons they send will cover the full retail
cost of stuff like batteries or caulk.

Maybe, good luck with that if it is something expensive but in my
case, these were still in the bubble card. No product was involved.
I really think the battery people have softened that guarantee to
replace anything their battery screws up because they all leak. I find
little difference between the name brands or the store brand at places
like Costco. My guess is a couple of factories in Asia make them all.

Asia doesnt work like that.

Never thought it would yellow like that.
Almost acts like the product was miss-labeled ?
