"Peel & Stick" Caulk Easy To Apply
It takes a pretty steady hand to apply caulk to bathroom fixtures and countertops without messing up. Greg Amundson's patent-pending peel & stick "caulk" is a combination of two quality products a flexible pvc and an industrial foam adhesive. The wedge-shaped strip is easy to apply and stays securely in place.
  The Scandia, Minn., businessman used downtime as a post-and-beam cedar home distributor to focus on making better caulk that doesn't mold and looks attractive.
  "I wanted to make something anyone could apply," he says. The soft (but not stretchy) tape has wings that conform to corners and irregularities of walls, floors and counters to make a tight bond. Simply clean the surface, remove the backing tape and press the strip into place.
  "The surface needs to be cleaned thoroughly," Amundson emphasizes. His website includes methods for eliminating silicone and other materials on remodeling projects. Insta Trim works well on new applications and can even be used in tubs and showers where no silicone is present.
  He offers kits through Amazon and at his website. An 8-ft. strip for a countertop sells for $9.50 (plus shipping). Urinal and toilet trim kits cost $8.95 (plus shipping).
  Amundson also sells his product by the foot.
