THERE'S nothing more annoying than trying to apply caulk to an awkward angle and it being left as an awkward mess.
But one painter and decorator has shared her clever, easy trick to getting a smooth and even finish every time you caulk.
"This is just a little trick for the DIYers," Joanne Hay said over a video shared to her TikTok page.
"If you’ve got gaps like this at awkward angles, you might find it difficult to get a nice finish with decorators’ caulk.
"So we’ll show you how to get a nice smooth finish."
In the video, she showed how to apply the caulk to where the stair handrail joins the bottom post.

"Apply your caulk where you need it, like so," she said.
"Then, use a small paintbrush, put it in some cold water and just tap off the excess, and then use the brush to just smooth out and get a nice smooth and even finish."
As she did so, the wet brush smoothed out the caulk and ensured it looked neat and tidy.
"You can use this method for all your caulking," she added in the video, before writing in a comment pinned on the clip: "This method can be used for all caulking, or for skirting etc wipe over with a damp sponge."
