Yet Another Way to Seal a Tube of Caulk

Plumber's Putty is a quick way to seal up a tube of caulk

Over the years, I’ve tried many different ways to seal open tubes of caulk and adhesive. Last year, I began sealing them with a little plug of Plumber’s Putty. I remove a little bit of the caulk from the tip of the tube, take a small piece of putty and stuff it in the tip about 1/4 in. I remove the putty by squeezing the gun or digging it out. After more than a year, nothing’s dried out yet. — Bill Scott
