I hate working with silicone sealant.
It smells terrible.
It’s a pain to wash off your skin.
It doesn’t go where you want it to.
It gets very messy very quickly.
So when I had to seal up around the freshly lain lino, it was not a job I was looking forward to.
I took a plastic scraper that I had kicking about and chopped off the corner using a knife, I then sanded it smooth using fine grade sandpaper.
It use it, run a bead of sealant down the gap between the wall and floor, then run the tool along to smooth the profile and remove the excess. It’s still quite messy but the end results are good. It’s possible to use the other side of the scraper to remove any drips or splodges that get onto the lino or tiles.
