Putty Seals Caulk Tube
This little trick keeps caulk fresh for months.
I keep a tub of plumber’s putty near the bin of caulk tubes in my trailer. At the end of the day, I roll a marble-sized ball of putty in my hands and smoosh it over the tips of any open caulk tubes I have left over. This little trick keeps them fresh for months.
