If I had a dime for every “glue booger” I have picked out of a bottle I would have several gazillion dimes. (That’s right, I would have so many dimes they wouldn’t even add up to a real number) It is the bane of every art teacher’s existance to have to pick out the crusty dried up glue from a glue bottle that has not been closed properly. It takes up so much time and it is not great for finger nails. There are many innovative solutions to this problem:
Some use petroleum jelly or veggie oil. . .
Some boil them . . .
And some do away with the bottle all together!
Well, I have found the ultimate solution to “glue boogers” and it takes absolutely no effort on your part becasue all you have to do is order Crayola® Washable No-Run School Glue. This 4oz bottle of ooey gooey sticky goodness DOES NOT CLOG. Thats right — the folks over at Crayola have come up with an ingenous solution.
It looks very different from that ol’ familiar orange cap glue and its a bit stockier but man oh man does it work brilliantly! The cap screws off and on the inside there is a little plastic rod that goes inside of the spout. This ensures that the glue NEVER CLOGS.
At first I was not sold on this new design because I imagined all of the caps getting lost in the land of lost art supplies. (It’s the place where marker caps, erasers, and nameless papers go to die) Then I realized . . . you can hook the cap to the glue bottle!
Whoever designed this is a genius and deserves a million awards and stickers and trophies. This stuff is completely genius and I recommend it for any classroom. Thank you Crayola for this magnificent advancement in glue engineering. 🙂
