We all turn to that old caulk gun when we need to seal up our bathtubs, but did you know that the ultra-sticky construction material also doubles as an all-purpose home repair tool?
Believe it or not, we often find ourselves whipping out the DIY standby to repair — and enhance! — various areas in our house, from our roof to our wallpaper.
So, dig that dusty caulk gun out from your toolkit and get ready to make repairs in ways you never knew existed! Here are 7 creative ways you can use caulk to make your home more liveable…
1. Use it to keep your rug slip-free
There’s nothing worse than laying out that new rug on your wood floor only to discover that it feels like you’re on a Slip ‘N Slide every time you step on it. To remedy this, simply add a caulk border around the underside of your rug. For optimal slip protection, don’t forget the edges!
2. Use it to repair cracks in your gutter
Don’t want to spend the cash on a gutter repair service to mend your cracks? If so, seal up the crevices with a high-quality butyl rubber caulk. For this fix, a little bit goes a long way!
