Do you have an open door policy for drafts and bugs?
Of course not! Wait… you might and not know it. Have you looked under your sinks around the water pipes? If you have gaps around the pipes, you have the welcome sign up for cold air and bugs. Take a few minutes to seal around pipes with GREAT STUFF and you’ll stop them from entering your home.
Before GREAT STUFF approached me about writing a sponsored post for them, I was already a huge fan of their product. And between you and me, this post was already on the list of 31 Days of Handy Home Fixes! But, let’s keep that secret, because we don’t need GREAT STUFF to get an inflated ego. Ha, ha. Get it? Inflated. Oh yes, GREAT STUFF expands!
So much so, that I created a second head when I was working on my kitchen renovation. (I think my Halloween costume is complete, right?!)
But seriously, this is GREAT STUFF! It will fill in any gaps and holes in your home and foundation to prevent bugs and drafts from coming in. GREAT STUFF is easy to use, simply shake the can for 30 seconds. Add the spray nozzle. Don’t forget to put on gloves and eye protection. I created a super quick video to show you how to use GREAT STUFF.:
Spray GREAT STUFF into the gaps around your pipes. Do not overfill as GREAT STUFF expands as it cures.
Keep a wet wipe or paper towel nearby to wipe off the nozzle and wipe up any drips.
Once the GREAT STUFF has cured, trim off any excess with a serrated blade if necessary.
Here are just a few places you can use GREAT STUFF:
Around plumbing pipes under your sink:
In the openings and gaps in your floor vents:
Around pipes and wires entering your home’s foundation:
Have you checked under your sinks or around your foundation lately? Buy a can of GREAT STUFF and seal all the gaps. Then enjoy your winter draft-free and your summers bug-free ;-).

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by GREAT STUFF. I was compensated for my time. As always, I’m extremely picky about the products I promote. If I don’t like a product, you won’t see it mentioned. All projects and opinions are my own. I was not told what to write or say about GREAT STUFF.
