I’ve tried electrical caps, screws, tape and even bought a cap one time. All trying to save a tube of caulk or glue for later use, nothing really works well.
Sitting at the kitchen table the other day and noticed my wife’s wax warmer, the kind they melt sented wax in that makes the house smell like a gift shop, and had a “ah-ha” moment.
I just happened to be doing a little crack caulking around the house and my old caulking was of course, crap. I had just got home from having to buy new caulk.
When I got done caulking I just dipped the tip of the caulk in the melted wax. I know it will work fo a few days. When I got back to caulking a few days later, I just peeled it off with my finger nail and it was as good as new. Don’t know how it will work long term but it’s worth a try! I’ve seen wax used to seal food, mostly cheese, so I figured it just might work.
Anybody tried this? Will it work long term?
The only thing I gotta do is be a little sneaky, not sure my wife will think it’s a good idea…..
