What caulk to use for granite tiles ?

I couldn't find un-sanded tile caulk in box stores. So, is a regular bathroom/kitchen caulk ok for tiles ? If so, which one ? Latex or Silicone ?

thanks
Ramesh

Use a latex caulk. It cleans up with water. Not so with silicone.
What color caulk do you need?
In the HD you should find a limited selection of colored caulk that match some of the grout colors.
If you live in a large city look for a Dal-Tile in the yellow pages. They will have a caulk to match any grout color.

Hi JTG,

I couldn't find un-sanded colored caulk at all in HD.
Anyways, thanks for the tip. I found a Dal-Tile store near by. I'll check with them.

thanks
