A classic tip to winterize your home is to use caulk to seal up windows and prevent cold air from seeping in. But for some people, using a caulk gun can be both messy and complicated, and it can create windows that are eyesores when you’re finished. For the less DIY-inclined, try Mortite caulking cord. It comes wrapped up like small rope, and you just unroll, press with your fingers and -- voila! -- cracks, gaps and holes are sealed up. It comes in a variety of colors to match the color of your windows, too. The best part: It never hardens, so if you ever want to remove it, you just peel it off.
