Cleaner Caulking Tip
Prevent the mess next time you're caulking
Let's face it—caulk guns are messy. No matter how carefully you work, it's nearly impossible to keep the stuff from oozing out after releasing the trigger. But you can dramatically reduce this sloppy squeezeout by tightly wrapping the caulk cartridge with duct tape. This trick helps keep the cartridge from bulging and contracting whenever the trigger is squeezed and released, greatly decreasing the mess.
