Sorry I have never had this problem with any of the glues I use. I do use a brush, I pour out a bit of glue on an icecream lid and then use my brush
I was going to suggest just the tops, because they fit Titebond II bottles like they were made for them. Just twist the top a bit, and it opens, no unsticking it like a regular Titebond pull cap, just a tiny dot of dried glue very easy to remove. Don't know if the would fit Elmers, because never used it.Do you have mustard in squeeze bottles, Alexis? The empty used ones make good dispensers. Other empty plastic containers with slender spouts are also good sources of replacement containers.
Seldom use a brush, except maybe in tight places. If I use something to spread glue, I have found a well used playing card does the job nicely. Hold it so fingers are on the back. After use, you can either toss it, or let it dry, and use it again later. Works for me.I prefer to apply glue with a brush.
Assuming these bottles flew to Venezuela in the cargo hold of an airplane, they could have been exposed to some very cold temperatures, and the plastic could have been damaged. Maybe the glue too ...Hi, guys.
I love Elmer's wood glue but, it seems to me that there is a problem with the dispenser tip.
On my last trip to the USA, I bought four bottles of this glue. When I was using my first bottle during one of my projects, the dispenser did not slide over the tip and the cap was broken. I put a coin inside the cap to protect the glue from drying and contaminants.
A similar situation happened with the second bottle. This time, I pulled the dispenser off and the orange ring on the tip brake down.
In both cases, I needed to remove the cap to pour the glue in the joint making this not even and spillage prone.
I googled some information about this and it looks like this is a common problem with this brand.
Having two additional bottles in stock, It seems to me that I need to take care of the bottle's cap when the time to use them arrives. Another option is to use Titebond again but both brands are not available here. Local glues are expensive and look like the same product with different names.
Party poop!:grin:Keep my tight bond III bottles turned upside down after I wipe the tips off. Seems to work for me. Otherwise the mustard and ketchup bottles are great. Just make sure you keep the hotdogs and hamburger out of the shop. ��
