Remember that plastic tubes don't usually have a second, inner seal.
Hold the gun at a slight angle. If you're filling a crack, insert the spout if you can -
otherwise, run it at the surface.
Pull away from the bead slightly as you squeeze out the caulk, rather than push into it -
that can be very messy.
Use the right amount of caulk for the job.
Use your finger to gently press the caulk into corners or cracks.
Use a damp towel or rag to clean off most of the excess caulk, and then use a dry one to
clean off the rest.
Different types of caulk (silicone, acrylic and latex) are available. Silicone caulk is the
long-lasting one, but it does not take paint well.
Wear gloves if required.
Keep some water handy to wash off.

How to Safely Use a Ladder
First and foremost, fully open the stepladder and lock the braces.
If you use a regular ladder, then make sure it’s not broken.
Keep the feet of the ladder, particularly of an extension ladder, on dry and even surfaces.
Never use an aluminum ladder near live electrical sources.
