Not a hard-core DIY'er
? Then you probably loathe caulking
... the gunked-up tubes and the unwieldy caulking guns are
a pain, that's true.
Here's a cool solution, new out this month from GE: Caulk Singles
. As the name suggests, these are cute little single-use, easy-grip tubes of caulk
. Says a GE product representative, "Caulk Singles will do for caulk what the bleach pen and disposable razor did for people on the go."
Why? GE believes the product offers busy people a fast, no-tools-required way to get small caulking jobs done. Caulk Singles are available in both 100% silicone
(with a choice of white or clear) and paintable acrylic. They retail at 1.25 ounces for $2.48
Oooh! Free stuff! GE is giving away samples... just fill out this form
at the Caulk Singles promotional website.
Caulk Singles are being marketed with the line "tear, squeeze, toss." Yes, that makes the product sound a bit environmentally
unfriendly. But think about it: this soft squishy tube is probably no more wasteful than the big standard-sized plastic tubes of caulk... especially if you consider most homeowners
eventually throw away unused left-over caulk anyway.
