Spackle without formaldehyde or alternative
I bought a spackle without reading the ingredience. It didn't make me happy when I read there was formaldehyde in it.
I scrapped wallpaper off the walls and there are small dings in it. Can I use caulking to fill these halls or is there an alternative to the spackle?

Use drywall joint compound-----All safe as far as I know---I suggest USG Light weight,

It is premixed----available in small tubs or huge buckets---Easy to apply and easy to sand.

This is the one with the blue lid-----It will take some time to dry,however.--Mike--

Mike Thanks
Thanks for your quick responds.
I will definitely use the joint compound and don't mind waiting for the drying. Would prefer this than something that can cause cancer.
Appreciate your responce.

Glad to help---that chemical gives me a headache---nasty and unnecessary--
