Besides, why does clear caulk look white?
I never believed that the white caulk would dry clear. I was wrong. The white color in the caulk is caused by the presence of latex. As the water evaporates from the latex the structure of the caulk changes so that the caulk becomes transparent.
Secondly, should I use white or clear caulk? A small tube usually does the job for one shower, including sealing around shower doors. You can get it in a variety of colors. Keep in mind that a “clear” caulk will always go on white, then dry to a clear or transparent color. See the bathroom caulking tips section below for more advice and application techniques.
Consequently, can you see through clear caulk?
Burnerman. Translucent means that you will be able to see through it, although some colour could still remain. Clear means, in this case, to be colourless.
What is clear caulk used for?
Caulk is used as a sealant, filling cracks or gaps around windows, doors, plumbing and pipes to prevent water, bugs or air from entering your home.
