Cap Caulk Tubes
All you need is a disposable glove to close up a tube of sealant until the next time you need it.
For years I’ve tried various methods and products for capping off tubes of caulk, roofing cement, and adhesive. Finally, I’ve landed on a way that’s quick, easy, and cheap: Just snip off a finger of a disposable glove, put it over the end of the tube, and shoot about an inch of the goop into the glove finger. Shape the goop around the tip of the tube to seal it off, and you’re done.
