What can I use if I don't have a caulking gun?

A t-shaped stick (like the handle of a hammer) can be used when you have no caulking gun . Put the long end into the back of the tube and the t part in the crook of your elbow. Firmly grasp the tube with the same hand. By bending your wrist towards your elbow you can create enough pressure to deliver the caulk .

No, you do not need a caulk gun . This is a myth, and nifty though a caulk gun sounds, it's not. They're a pain to use, and impossibly difficult if the caulk you use is at all dry. You should be able to just pull the caulk away; use your scraper or remover to get at any stubborn bits.
