      A:  I’d try a little oil. Even olive oil.

      A:  Nothing can be used and we would recommend getting a new can of sealant if the product has started to dry out.

            I’ve been using this stuff for years. Good product to use when Teflon tape is not recommended (e.g., fuel lines). Also great for hydraulic lines. See photo of rebuilding a power steering pump and using Real-Tuff Thread Sealant for fitting. As the specifications state, “withstands temperatures from -50 deg F to 500 deg F (on steel pipe), and pressures of 12,000 psi (hydraulic),” – definitely meets for my automotive needs.

            I’ve never been more satisfied with a product
            About 6 years ago I found a tube of this thing laying around in the basement of the house I moved to. I put it away in my toolbox just in case I would need it. Fast forward 6 years to me moving to a new house. The toilet shut off valve and hose had a leak so I figured the best course of action would be to install a new valve and hose. After battling with micro leaks for hours, I remembered I had stashed this away. It worked wonders and now I have no leaks. The tube was from 2007 and still works!
