Re: caulking line on vanity
Behind the faucet is nearly impossible to fit a caulking gun. Use the tubing trick Houston mentioned, or pump some onto your finger and work it in then use the sponge trick below.
If using latex caulk, you may be able to refine the line by using a damp sponge (use a latex foam sponge, not cellulose). Rinse the sponge frequently.
The pressure you place on the sponge will determine the width of the caulk line. Too much pressure and you'll just end up wiping it all out of the crack.
If the sponge trick doesn't work, the worst that happens it it's all wiped away so you can start over.
