Just two quickies today – I’m up against the clock, again…
“One of the best money savers that I’ve found, after decades of using cartridge caulks is:
After you’ve clipped the tip of a caulk or an adhesive tube cartridge, make it just barely large enough to insert a bamboo skewer into it’s tip.
Then, insert the bamboo skewer to puncture the internal plastic seal. Remove the skewer, wipe it off, and you’re ready to squeeze the cartridge trigger gun. Press out what you need for your current project, then reinsert the bamboo skewer about five inches into the cartridge, through the tip. Wrap the tip in blue masking tape.
I’ve found that the bamboo skewer re-inserted into the tip process allows me to then remove the bamboo, and use the rest of the contents of the cartridge for over the next year or so.
The bamboo skewer creates a clear channel for Caulk/adhesive to stay inert from the tip through to the cartridge, but you will need to squirt away about 6 inches of the product to get to the good stuff.
BIG TIME MONEY SAVER”
