If you're trying to get adhesive, caulk, or silicone into a tight spot where you can't reach with the tube of stuff, squeeze the amount you need into a soda straw, then get the straw into the position where you need it, and squeeze the straw, pushing the adhesive out where you need it.

Example: I needed to get some silicone sealant into a long, narrow [1" wide] sleeve of weatherproof fabric. Solution: squeeze a generous amount of sealant into a straw, insert straw into position in the sleeve, squeeze sealant out in the appropriate place, then pull out the straw. Simple.
