Cheap Tire Seal Uses Dish Soap And Latex Caulk
“We put a lot of used tires on our farm vehicles, so slow tire leaks around the wheel rims is a common problem. I came up with a cheap tire seal by filling an empty plastic dish soap bottle 3/4 full of a mixture of 1/2 dish soap and 1/4 acrylic latex caulk, at a 2:1 ratio. I shake up the bottle to mix everything up good, then squirt the mixture into the tire’s valve stem. It does a good job of sealing the rim. After I’m done I rinse the bottle out to make sure there’s no leftover caulk residue that could dry out and keep the mixture from working the next time.”
