A Sticky Situation!

I absolutely LOVE my Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive (110755).  It has a dual tip for placing adhesive exactly where you want it. You can place an exact small amount using the small tip, or spread the adhesive over a larger area using the wide tip.

And I swear it must have some magical property.  It never fails, I think a bottle has finally come to an end, but then I give it a shake and to my amazement I can squeeze more glue out of it.

As a result, I have ended up saving a bunch of them for those little squirts of glue I need on small projects.  I was running out of room to store all of this wonderful stuff.  So I decided to take action!!

First, I gathered up all of my almost empty glue bottles.

Then I removed the wide end of one of the bottles. Note: it comes off very easily if you unscrew it backwards. I'm sure there is a logical reason, I just don't know what it is. All those years of "righty-tighty, lefty-loosey" for nothing 🙂

Then, I removed the narrow end of the second bottle. Note: It unscrews very easily, but again, backwards.

Next, I inserted the narrow end of one bottle into the wide end of the other bottle. For stability, I put the bottom bottle in a jar full of beads. You can also use rice, beans or sand. Just don't get any in the glue 🙂

I allowed the glue to drain from one bottle to the other. I occassionally tilted the bottle to allow it drain even more off of the ridge at the neck.

Voila! I went from 5 almost empty bottles to 2 (the 3rd bottle in this jar is a new bottle). Note: For best results, I store my glue bottles upside down. This keeps the glue in the tip and "ready to go."

If you need some of the amazing adhesive, give me a call today.  I will be happy to place an order for you.
