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
Use a screwdriver, or the side of the tool to spread this material on the wall. That will save your nails, and easier to open. It also wash's off your nails when done.

Can this product be used for leaking holes that i have on my cealing?

Asked by: Manuel
Water will destroy this just as fast as it destroys wallboard. After fixing leaks you can use it.

Does it try any faster

Asked by: Dan
I sure think it does. The great thing is it changes from pink to white when it's dry, ready to paint! I can not imagine buying a different spackle.

DryDex 16 oz. Dry Time Indicator Spackling Paste is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 474.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Primer Peeled Spackle Patch Off The Ceiling Attempted to patch a crack in the ceiling. I've done this many times before in different locations using other products. Prepped the area, patched, dried, feathered & sanded smooth. Applied a primer that I've used may times before... Parts of the patch pulled away from the ceiling, other areas became rough like the primer dissolved the spackle. I removed most of the patch via scraping & sanding. Prepped again with course sandpaper and tried again. Same result. Completely removed the patch. Went to my 10 year old pail of drywall joint compound and patched, dried, feathered & sanded smooth. Applied the primer... no problem.

DAP engineers & chemists need to go back to the drawing board on this one. White does NOT indicate dry. Followed instructions to the letter, including stirring. Filled some small shallow nail holes in interior wood moulding - product turned white in about 4 hours. Yet was still pliable 48 hours later in an extremely low humidity environment. Seems to never fully cure to the point where it is a hard material. I wound up scraping as much as possible out of the holes, and redid them with a lower cost HDX house brand which worked much better. Save your time and money folks, this stuff simply doesn't work. Look at all the 1 star reviews, they are accurate.

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 1 out of 5 by from Contractor unapproved!!! This product is awful! I am a General Contractor and I have given this product its last shot! This product has never given good results. Drys fast only when spread super thin and even when it turns white, it is still soft to the touch and can't be sanded. This product forms bubbles when drying and even after sanding, when you begin to roll paint across the patched area, the roller pulls off the surface of where the bubbles were! This is a terrible product and I won't waste anymore of my money on it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product Drydex is terrific. Our daughter, a first-time DIYer, used this stuff in combination with mesh tape extensively in a room that frankly probably could have used a completely new drywall job. A contractor who had been doing another job for us in the same room looked around and asked, "Um..who's doing this for you?" When I told him our daughter, he replied, "She does a better job than we do." The wall after her repair with Drydex and subsequent painting looks like a brand-new drywall job. The color indicator is a great plus. Drydex takes sanding and paint beautifully. We LOVE this stuff.

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 5 out of 5 by from Works good! I really do love this stuff....I love that it has the pink when you put it on, then as it dries, it turns white...to let me know i can either apply a 2nd coat (if its a deeper hole) or i can start sanding and painting. I used this stuff after i took off hideous tile that was in the kitchen, in the house we just bought. Well..along with the tile, some of the drywall came out as well! This worked like a charm in patching the hole :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would purchase again! I really enjoyed using this product. I am not much of a DIY girl without the help of my fiancé but I managed to use this product myself without much fuss. I fixed a few imperfections in walls and they look fantastic. I am so glad I had the opportunity to try this product as we've been striving to fix up our home as well as my parents' home. One specific thing that I like about the product was that it was pink when applied but dried white. It was easy for me to see where I was applying but also easy for me to cover up with matching paint to my wall. Best of all- I did it all by myself!
