DAP Seal & Peel Caulk?
Anyone experienced with this product? Dap Claims that it can be applied to drafty window frames and other cold sources, etc in Fall season to seal them, then it is easy to remove in spring. Sounds ideal and maybe cost effective for this old farmhouse with leaky aluminum storms.. Or any alternative ideas? Thanks.
I use a product, WIND JAMMER, made by Liquid Nails. The product is clear, goes on easily and peels off in the spring. Around $5 a can . It comes with an assortment of nozzles and the can does not clog after use. I clean the noozle with wire. The stuff you mention is probably Dap's answer to Wind Jammer. I use it every year for my leaky storms.
I remember in a catalog, might have been Brookstone, they sold a heavy and wax saturated string that was intended as a temporary and removable seal for around windows. It was fairly cheap and reusable. Came in both a natural pale color and a medium brown if I remember right.
I used the DAP last year and it did what it said, but it sure did stink up the place until it cured.
I've used it, and it is great. Very easy to work with, and it does peal off cleanly. I've used it to seal off doorways while remodeling to keep dust from permeating other areas of the house, too.

Great stuff--stinks to high heaven--don't do all the windows at the same time--
Ya need to open some--when the cold is over it peels off like a dream-
Stain, paint, doesn't bother either--
Just one tip---don't even think of trying to smooth it--what ever it is when it comes out of the gun is what ya get for the winter.
I only know because--well lets just say--start in back of the house.
