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 32 oz. Premium Lightweight Low Dust Joint Compound is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 273.

The engineers/designers of the plastic container did everything right the first time. The lid fits so perfectly that the product doesn't dry out from storage. This is the second container that I've bought and that was over a year ago. It was about 3/4's full and I got to use every bit of it. The product itself is precisely what you'd expect and couldn't be better. This spackling is not easily sanded, but it takes to sanding (whatever grit you decide) and gives you the finish that you're after. This is the third project I've had using this spackling paste. Every project looks totally professional (I'm not a professional, I just read the directions and looked it up on the internet for any hints). This spackling paste met all of my expectations. I highly recommend using this product.

But, that was a mistake. What I should have done is research product reviews prior to purchasing. After preparing my wall surface, and applying a coat, AND waiting until the next day prior to applying another coat; this product failed. I applied several coats over the week, as described above. Then waited a week before painting the surface today. And just as others have commented here, the product peeled off upon the first coat. In one of the other reviews, someone states they took the product back to the store for a refund (not available to me as an option considering the time I've taken applying the product) and he was told that he should have put primer first... PLEASE believe me when I say: That does NOT make a difference. I myself was applying primer before color matching my wall, and the product still came off. And this is after a week's worth of dry time! I am including a photo. PLEASE: Do not waste your money on this product. You will be disappointed. You should just buy normal putty, or putty mix, and repair your home. This product is a waste of money, effort, and time!

It worked great. Even now our walls look as good as when we first patched and repainted. No bubbling, cracking, or any other issues, and I really like the fact that it changes color when dry. I will be renovating another room soon and will be purchasing more of this product. Not sure why it didn't for other reviewers but my husband and I were very pleased.

If you are patching a hole, say to reinstall a towel rod bracket, this is not the stuff. Also used it to smooth over wall imperfections and like others have noted, the paint roller has a tendency to pull off the spackling in places, creating a real mess.

It closed up all of the holes from some screws I had removed, even a large four inch gap from when a shelf broke off the wall! *Note: I had to allow it to dry and reapply several times for the larger holes. It was also rather easy to sand down after drying.

Wish I knew about this along time ago, would of saved me time and money, especially the mesh that goes on first. I am going to stock up on this item and the mesh to, just in case I need it again, was so easy to apply, did not have to wait long for it to dry, Thanks for caring this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dry wall compound? I have never used anything for drywall compound that was so bad! absolutely horrible! It almost seems to be rubbery. no matter how I prepared the tape it could be pulled right off two days latter. went back to the (white) no color changing type. End of issue!
