Home Depot does not have it.

Paint store maybe? I need it to caulk between a formica back splash and formica countertop.

I need an answer quickly, because this is causing me stress. I have a job to do, and I can't be messin' around trying to buy this stuff online, and then waiting 3 weeks for it.

Hurry up.

3. Huh. I didn't know caulks came in colors.
I thought it was white or nothing.

4. No, they do, but they are specialty caulks.
My formica is blue, and when my kitchen was originally done, the contractor used a blue caulk to match. I have seen them online, but I have no idea where to buy this stuff in a store.

I may try a cabinet shop on Monday.

5. You looked in the wrong department
You looked in the Caulk aisle of the paint department, correct? Go back to Home Depot and find the grout aisle in the flooring department, where they stock...

Polyblend caulk comes in a LOT of colors, and it contains mold inhibitors.
