I have broken more fingernails (at $25 a manicure) trying to open the spackle container. Is there any way your team of highly educated packaging engineers could come up with an easier way to open the container?
Asked by: trdryspackler
A small flathead screwdriver or coin can be used to assist with the removal of the lids from these packages.

can this be used on vinyl plastic?

Asked by: telcom
Depends upon how much flex you get where you want to apply. This stuff dries similar to drywall, plaster, etc. If it's a vinyl floor, then no because it would probably either crack or loosen around the edges.

Can i add paint to this the same color as my walls?

Asked by: ash
It can be painted over after it dries. But no, it would not turn out well to mix paint with this and then use it.

Will this product work on plaster ceilings as well as drywall?

Asked by: tryinghard
Yes. It's stiff enough damp to use in ceilings as well as walls.

Customer Reviews

1 pt. DryDex Spackling with Dry Time Indicator is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Excited to try, disappointed to use Excited to try this product. Applied and waited for pink to change to white. Cool to see that. Then waited two more days before painting. When painting over the patches, they began peeling off. Very disappointed by the results. Went to hardware store to complain. They said I should have used a primer before painting, yet nowhere on the product instructions does it recommend using primer first. Messed up my paint job. Not looking forward to spending another weekend re-doing what I just did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great This was recommended by a friend to fill nail holes in my new baseboard. It worked great for that. I have always used DAP products in the past and have always had great results. This time I used it on a new buffet cabinet I was building. Used to it fill nail holes from attaching the face frame and to fill a small gap from trimming out the top. I used it on solid hard maple. Dried super quick, sanded down no problem. I primed and painted the entire cabinet and it turned out great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't tell if it works, due to not able to squeeze the tube Bought a tube of DryDex Spackling and nail hole filler, based on a recommendation. Not sure if the tube was too old or expired, but I could not squeeze the product out with all the force of my hand. Even wrung the tube like a wet rag and could only extract a drop at a time, which was not my intended use. Even cut the nozzle to 3/4 of the way down (pencil size hole in the nozzle), and the result was the same. I am very disappointed..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great This spackle is great. I've been repainting a 5 bedroom house and a 32 oz tub of this stuff is plenty for this house. I've used it on bigger holes and patches, up to an inch, and it works great in layers. I love it so much. I wish it said if you could paint directly on it or if it needs primer. I've been priming it so far but I think I'm going to experiment with not priming it and see what happens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for the DIYer I have been using DryDex for all of my small to medium-size drywall repairs with satisfaction. The dry indicator is spot on for alerting readiness for sanding and painting/texturing. Both the spackling and the nail hole filler work great when used correctly and in knowledgeable hands. If you read bad reviews about the nail hole filler not dispensing quickly, it's because the tube is designed to dispense only enough to fill a NAIL HOLE at a time. This is a design function. I have used the nail hole filler to blend cracks from wall bowing and flexing - you have to knead the material in the tube first. Following the directions is key to success with any spackling as the manufacturer has a proprietary recipe that separates the material behavior from that of other brands. Use a little common sense in conjunction with the directions and you have yourself a great pre-mixed product that requires only a little stirring or kneading before use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was fantastic! I used this product for several uses. In the bathroom to repair where a towel bar was ripped out by my four year old, a hole where a door was opened too hard and the handle went through the wall, and screw holes from shelves that were removed. This product worked great for all of the purposes. I used a metal infused mesh for the larger holes and this product went on smoothly and evenly. It was definitely thick enough for the purpose, not at all runny. The only reason that I didn't give it five stars is because I could not understand by the packaging if I could paint directly on it after I applied or if I had to use primer first. After sanding and wiping down, it still has a powder grit finish so I primed it first and it worked like a charm. Also, it goes on smooth and I have a orange peel wall. I took the curved edge of a paperclip and carved orange peel markings in the product after it dried and it matched the wall completely after paint. Very pleased with the results!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I've used DAP Spackle products before without a problem. I applied this to quite a few areas on previously painted (latex) drywall and there was a 3 day dry time before I painted (latex). The paint would not stick to any of the areas with the spackle and literally peeled off as a rolled paint over it. I ended up having to use a putty knife to scrape off the paint and spackle. This was a complete waste of my time. Now I need to go and purchase a different brand and redo the work.

Worst product (spackle) I've ever used I've redone the same spot 4 times and 4 times the paint peeled and cracked. Been using different Dap products for 40 years. Due to this experience I'm done with Dap products. If you like to repeatedly get frustrated use this product. Terrible, Terrible, Terrible.
