How to Keep Large Tubes of Glue / Caulk From Drying Out


I've done a lot of diy projects where I used glue or caulk in these large tubes, it's so much more economical.  But the left over stuff would dry up and be totally useless after a day or two even using some masking tape on the end.  

Then I started using a piece of duck tape and that helped, it would still be useful after a couple of weeks.

Dad added the zip tie and it keeps the glue or caulk from drying out for at least a couple of months... sorry we haven't had any around longer than that.

My husband would squeeze out a glob on the caulking and form a cap around the tip, worked great!
