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
One of two ways depending on the lid. If lid has slots in it, like a joint compound bucket, cut the slots all the way to top of recess. There is a 5 in 1 painters tool with a lid removal hook. If there are no slots, there is an angled part on the lid. Cut the angled part vertically to the top of the angle and use pliers to tear off the angled part. You do not need that strip to re-seal the container

Once I spackled and sanded, it was a coupled of days before I painted, the spackled seemed to swell under the paint. Do I need to put primer over the spackle before painting?
Asked by: MattMac
I did, and I experienced no problems with painting.

Just used in mine, and very unhappy with the results. I would use some other spackling compound it joint compound if I were you!

Doesn't dried up?

This product remains pink and is taking a long time to dry. It has already been 2 days after application and does not change to white or harden.
Asked by: Tony
That's not right maybe you got a bad bucket of it. When I have used it I haven't had any problems, it turns from pink to white and dries in about an hour for me. Take it back and get a different bucket.

DryDex 16 oz. Dry Time Indicator Spackling Paste is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 138.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Paint peels off spackle paint peels right off the spackle. proper preparation, e.g., vacuuming and wiping off dust, was performed. the underside of the peeled paint had grit from the spackle. now i need to prep the wall again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from leaves finished product with gator skin Goes on nice and pink, dries white, sands nicely, but a few hours or days after painting the product will curl and give a rough gator skin texture to the project.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This thing doesn't harden at all, just falls apart Bought the drywall patch kit. Applied the patch, spackled, waited a few hours for the pinkness to go away and dried overnight. Came back the next morning, sanded, noticed a lot of flakiness. Came back a day later and, while it was still intact, lightly touched it with my finger and it started to fall apart. There's no way it would accept paint or primer and the test of time, it is completely useless, flaky, loses its consistency, breaks apart. Now I have to buy a different joint compound and do it all again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again! This stuff peels off with a coat of paint. Not sure why this review of Spackle needs to know my cooking prowess? This has a neeto factor changing colors when dry, but lets remember I sent 3 days spakling so when i put paint on the wall the Spackle would stay on the wall. Yes I did stir the heck out of it, I did prep the area, I did prime the wall, I have done this type of repairs for 20+ years. This is the worst product ever and it is clearly not the first review of its kind... so suprised that it is still on the shelves...

This had an odd consistency after days of drying (with a thin coat and the white color "dry" indication.) Did not dry at a uniform rate...contributed to or caused curled/lifted tape edges. There was no saving the issues this material caused. So, I needed to rip it out and refinish. Oddly, when removing the tape I didn't need to rip or tear. Once I got an edge the tape just peeled off with little resistance, and the mud came off like a thin layer of clay. No dust though (haha.) This was after days of drying. Wasted time and money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaves cracks after drying, do not buy it til they get it ri Was excited to try it, roommate likes anything pink so the novelty was cool. Mixed it up, applied, waited til it turned white and it cracked. Applied second coat and it cracked again. No bueno.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would Never But this Product again! I applied this product as directed in 3 rooms of my newly rocked walls and wasted a ton of money not only on the spackle, but also the primer, paint, tools, and time!!!!!! The Benjerman Moore Paint on top of Zinsser 2 peeled off the walls like American Cheese from the Plastic. This product should be recalled at home terrible it is! I can Not believe that you can sell this!
