Tip & How-To about Plumbing
While the best method for evenly spreading a bead of silicone is to use your finger, there's always the problem of getting the silicone off. Soap won't touch it, hand cleaners do a poor job and usually the only method is to let it dry and then peel it off. I figured out a few years ago that all you have to do is grab a plastic bag (one of those thin film bags from grocery stores works great) and rub it on your hands like you would a shop rag. BAM gone. silicon likes plastic even more than your hands. I posted this on a few sites, but when I developed it, I couldn't find any other place online that listed it.
