There is no effective long term way to store tubes of silicon. Even unopened tubes have a finite shelf life. I have found the most effective way to store opened tubes for medium lenght time, is to allow a bit of excess to flow over the tip, and allow it to form a plug. In a few months, this plug may extend the full length of the nozzle, but you can push this out with a piece of steel rod (from the tip end). I keep my tubes of silicone and caulking in a cool dry place. I've never tried the bucket of water method, so I don't know how successful that would be.

sounds like off gassing. I suspect 1 of the following: 1. you didn't wait for the adhesive to dry to tackiness before applying 2. it's in direct sunlight or in a hot area 3. the material for the map is very thin and/or stretchy

Lots. Probably at least 60 and as many as 100. Check your local zoning laws.

Use common acetone-based nail polish.

On pre-mixed buckets, a lot of dry-wallers add just a little water and whip it up when tape and texturing. It flows of the blade better. But, if you're just repairing a few holes, dings and gouges, then no real need............unless it's really thickened up on you. If you have a partial bucket and are not going to use it for a while, you may want to flick some water on the surface and lay Saran wrap on the surface, then cap the bucket.

The best product that will not harm the poster or window is silicone caulk. There are also some crystal clear adhesives made from silicone now available.

Soak it in water for a day then rub it off.

Through necessity when nothing else was available, I found that acetone / nail polish remover dissolves or at least softens superglue. After the back of a folded tube burst, hands covered in the stuff, I tried various products. Hand soap, dishwasher, Handy Andy and Methlylated spirits have little effect. Laquer thinners also helps a bit, although acetone seems best. Pour full bottle into glass or metal container - not plastic, which will melt.. When rinsing hands in acetone, rub & scrub to remove stubborn bits still stuck. Concentrate under fingernails, where skin and nail meet. After removal, re-bottle actetone for future use. Lanolin oil in skin will also be removed, so after acetone-bath, wash well with hand soap, rinse, treat skin if required with a moisturizer cream. If your'e a guy, live with it - it'll give your hands a manly, rugged outdoor look! :)

no this is overkill. the seem tape is only necessary for seems, screw holes can be covered by a coat of joint compound, and sanded smooth after it dries

They're not the same thing, spackle is used to fill in holes or indetations made from nails in drywall while joint compounds are used to join drywall panels together.
