It is important to use the correct expanding foam for sealing. Using a gap and crack foam for windows and doors may cause damage to the openings by expanding too forcefully.

    • I have been unable to get any locally, so I haven’t tried it yet. I’m looking forward to getting feedback from others that try it.

  3. Can Soy seal be used around electrical outlets to seal them? Or could it cause a fire due to a short or the heat?
