    We have tiled the backsplash in our kitchen. The grouting is done and we are caulking. We are having problems caulking the corners where the two walls meet. (The vertical line) The tiles are uneven and we are getting a wobbly caulk line. Any ideas on how to make this look like a straight line? Thanks in advance

    There are some little silicone tools you can buy that allow you to get a nice finish on caulk/silicone sealant. I'm from the UK and use ones similar to this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cramer-40405-5-Fugi-Kit/dp/B003BNLQQ0

    I'm not sure where you're from, but if you type in "caulking tool" in to your local Amazon, you'll see some silicone tools similar to the ones from the link above. They come in several radiuses and are very easy to use and clean.
