CAULKING CORD

NOTE: Before applying any caulk, scrape the joint clean.

Description: This comes in a flat, beltlike band segmented into six beads of various sizes.

Buying information: Beads can be stripped off for use as needed. It is good for setting a sink drain (less messy than plumber's compound) and for permanent as well as temporary caulking. For example, the cord can be pressed into the cracks around a window in the winter, and it will be soft enough to strip off in the spring (you can't do that with regular caulk).

How-to hints: During warm weather, store the cord in the refrigerator and it will be in good condition for the following winter. Or, at the very least, keep it in a plastic bag. Take care that it is not accessible to a child.
