Use Butter To Clean Caulk From Your Hands


Marj Oleske of Martin, SD, provided this tip on how to clean up after using non-water-soluble caulk.

"I just read your newsletter about the caulking that is not water-soluble. I just discovered a great solution.

I'm in the middle of a BIG house addition project. The caulking is also non-water soluble, and of course gets all over my hands. When I am done, I smear butter on my hands, work it in well, as a massage, then add a generous amount of baking soda for a gentle scrub. Wipe with a paper towel, and then wash off the butter.

Works very well. Not bad for a girl...."
