Hello Crafty Friends!
Ever get your glue caps on your glue bottles "stuck like glue" ?
I know I do but ever since I have tried this solution that is not an issue anymore, so I thought I would share.
Now, I am referring to specific bottles that have the screw top lids where you squeeze the adhesive to get it to come out of the tube or bottle. Some examples of the ones I use this tip for are:
Designer Dries Clear
To name a few.
The idea is the same.
Use a q-tip to apply petroleum jelly (Vaseline) along the ridges of your bottle caps on the inside. Be sure that it gets in those grooves. This will allow a gliding action to occur whenever you are trying to screw on or off the bottle or tube tops/lids. It also helps if you accidentally get adhesive on the outside of your applicator because the petroleum jelly does not allow the adhesive to stick to wherever you applied that petroleum jelly.
Your bottle cap will twist on & off without sticking to the bottle or tube tip. The petroleum jelly creates a barrier. You may have to reapply from time to time but I have found this to be very helpful in getting my tops off with ease. I find I do not have to exert much force with my hands, fingers or wrists to twist off sticky tops off the glue tubes or bottles . This is definitely helpful for those who suffer from any kind of arthritis or joint problems.
Let me know if you try this tip & if it works for you.
It is always great to get feedback.
