The original post was for Silicone caulk.  Just for the record, once it has cured, nothing sticks to silicone, nothing.  New silicone won't even stick to old silicone.  If you notice the problem in the first half-hour to hour it MIGHT fix, but otherwise remove all the caulk with a putty knife, razor knife (carefully), or other mechanical means and reapply.  Silicone caulk is by far the best to use in a wet environment, but it can be a huge pain to remove and clean up after.
