Similarly, you may ask, is a caulking gun necessary?
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.

In this regard, do you need a caulking gun to apply silicone?
Things You 'll Need Squeeze tube caulk can be applied without the use of a caulking gun . Silicone is best for tile and window glass and any caulking that will eventually get wet. Latex, or painter's caulk , can painted over with latex paint so that it becomes invisible.
