    I have always just used a wet finger, but now I see how to eliminate needing to go back and remove the excess that rolls to the sides.

    Nice job!

    Why is an Aussie using "mountain music"? Shouldn't it be "Waltzing Matilda"? Half the video is watching him eat his Creamsicle. A wet finger and a damp sponge works for me, and I don't have to spend $2.00 on a popsicle.

    This may be the only one that, to paraphrase him "knocks your socks off". But it is a good video of how to eat a "Paddle Pop".

    There is a product I have seen on the market that is supposed to do about the same job as the Paddle Pop stick. It is plastic and has several tips that allow different widths of caulking. It appears quite usable if one was going to be doing frequent caulking. I didn't feel it was worth getting for myself since my need to caulk is very limited. The stick might be a good idea for those of us that only caulk occasionally, but the wet finger works pretty well, too,.

    Finger or stick really makes no big difference. The neat thing here is spraying a mist of water on everything after the caulk has been applied and before wiping so there is no "spillover" to go back and clean up later. I have an entire bathroom to re-do, and that kind of problem is one reason I have been avoiding doing it.
