Mesh drywall tape...2 questions


Yellow vs. white mesh tape. What's the difference? And I've heard mesh tape isn't strong enough for inside corners, but I've heard others who use it. Any secrets on how to make it work ok? Thanks.

1. The color. I'm not tryin' to be smart, it's just different manufacturers. (or at least if there's a difference I've never noticed it or been told about it)

2. I've never used anything but mesh on inside corners and never had any problems. Apply just like you would paper tape.

Thanks, but actually the same brand puts out the two different colors, so I was just wondering. The label doesn't say anything different. I didn't know if there was a secret as to the other colors.

It's no secret, they have blue too! Anyone seen red?
