Caulk packets that fit in a hand and go on easy

A single-use, hand-sized package of caulk may make the days of struggling with bulky squeeze-tubes of caulk a thing of the past.

The Orlando Sentinel

Tear, squeeze and toss. That's how easy it is to use GE Caulk Singles.

The single-use, disposable packages of caulk make the days of messy caulking using bulky squeeze tubes a thing of the past. Use them to apply caulk around molding and trim, fix worn-out caulk around fixtures or seal gaps and cracks before painting.

Singles can be used with one hand and dispensed with no tools, leaving little or no waste in the package. The best part: Unlike caulk guns, they are small enough to fit in vanities, drawers or a small tool bag.

Available at select Lowe's, Ace Hardware and True Value stores. Caulk Singles come in white paintable acrylic or white or clear waterproof silicone. $2.29 to $2.99 for a 1.25-ounce package.
