How to Clean a CA Glue Bottle Nozzle with a Petroleum Jelly Coating
posted on February 1, 2010 by Woodworker's Journal
Wiping petroleum jelly on bottle tip To prevent glue from accumulating on the end of a bottle of CA glue, wipe a little petroleum jelly on the nozzle.

Until I discovered this trick, I used to get frustrated cleaning the dried, accumulated glue off the nozzles of my CA glue bottles with a pliers — or worse, replacing the nozzles. Here’s my solution: I wipe a thin film of petroleum jelly all around the nozzle before replacing the cap. The glue won’t stick to the jelly. Now, my nozzles are clean and the tips are clear whenever I need some glue.
