Caulk tool

Is there any kind of tool that is shaped to get in the corners to remove the old caulk before applying new.

No special tool I know of. I have used small screwdrivers, razor and putty knives, a steel hooked darning needle, and wood chisels on occasion. Worst part of the recaulking job!

Sharpen an old popsicle stick as needed.

[quote]I bought a caulk removing tool at Lowe's. I haven't tried it on the Monty yet. Look near the caulk display.

IROC. Lowes has a set with two tools, black and yellow handles.

Ditto, Lowes in the paint dept next to caulk. They work, not magic, but helps.

Try using a "church key". You know the kind you used to use to open a beer.

You could try a plastic putty knife. They have them in the paint dept.

Yes there is a plastic v shaped tool for caulking. I usually use just my wet finger. Trick is to not put too much caulking on before smoothing it out.
