See if Pro Caulk Works Like the Infomercial Claims

by Theresa on March 24, 2009 · 2 comments

Pro Caulk sure looks like a handy little tool that promises to make caulking jobs stress free. The Pro Caulk kit comes with 3 tools that are made from rubber-like, non-stick materials. You get a total of 12 smoothing angles. This allows you to choose the best edge for your particular project. Have a look at how Pro Caulk did in this video review. Also I've got some handy hints on how to get the best use out of Pro Caulk.

The Pro Caulk Kit Comes With The Following...

[tags]pro caulk[/tags]Tool with 4 edges for large sealing tasks
Tool with 4 edges for small sealing tasks and grouting
Mini-tool with 4 sealing edges for tasks in hard-to-reach places

The Results

  • You get a total of 12 smoothing angles to choose from.
  • Pro Caulk KitThe Pro Caulk applicators are pointy enough to get into tough corners and smooth the caulking nice and neat.
  • In another video review,Dan had to swipe the Procaulk tool few times on the longer stretch of his tub. In the end it makes a perfectly neat caulked edge even around his ceramic tiles.
  • Dan still had to wipe a little bit of caulk off the tub. He liked the idea that it's much neater than smushing and smoothing it around with your fingers.
  • The smaller tool also worked the caulk quickly, cleanly and easily around the tub's faucet.
  • Another nice thing is that the caulk easily wipes off the tools making it easier to use.

Here's a great comment from Joe Pratt on hints on applying caulking.

  1. Do not apply too much caulk when you run the initial bead. How much is too much? See my second suggestion.
  2. Practice. Run a consistently sized bead of caulk, use the tool and then scrape away the caulk and toss it. Do it again. Yes, I know, you are "wasting" caulk. If you want a professional looking job, waste some caulk by practicing. You will find the appropriate bead size through practice. Obviously, the correct bead size will be determined by the edge you are using. The larger the edge the larger the bead size. Practice. Also, begin with a small hole in the caulk tube nozzle. Not enough caulk? Cut a slightly larger orifice. Remember, you can make the hole larger, however, you cannot make it smaller.
  3. Keep the tool perpendicular to the surfaces. If you have seen the ad on TV, pay attention to how the demonstrator holds the tool.
  4. Fill a spray bottle (like a windex bottle) with isopropyl alcohol and lightly spray the bead and the business side of the tool. It will make the tool glide easily over the caulk. (You can use this trick with any caulking tool including your finger.)

Pro Caulk works although as you saw in this video, you still have to stop and clean the applicator but Dan mentions it's still better than using your fingers. Also you may have to try a few edges to get the caulking just right. Another issue some people had was the price. Would you be willing to spend $20 plus on this product? I'll try to find out if ProCaulk is available in stores...you could at least save on shipping and handling charges. If you've ever wondered if the Point and Paint tool works have a look at this disaster!

You can buy it at Bed, Bath and Beyond for like $15.99, if you have a 20% off coupon its even less….

Or you can try this.

Tape both sides of the joint with blue masking tape set about 1/8″
from the joint on either side, then run a bead of clear silicone,
strike it off and really push it in to the joint, smooth the bead with
a finger, then scrape off everything that’s on the tape to clean it
off, pull the tape off at a sharp angle bending back on itself, spritz
a fine mist of water with a couple drops of soap in the water on the
joint, then with a finger dipped in the wet-soapy water press down the
edges of the caulking bead that was lifted up when the tape was
removed. The water keeps the caulk from sticking to whatever is wet.
When you’re done there should be hardly any caulk visible at all.
