A great tip on how to revive an old and dried up glue stick!

How to revive a died up glue stick...

Ever find a glue stick that hasn't had the lid put back on properly and it's all dried up?
Fear no longer. This tip may well revolutionise your glue stick supplies forever...

...Try splashing a little water on the glue. But to add to this, put a little bit of water in the cap/lid and put the cap back on. :Leave overnight. 80% of you probably knew this, but it completely rehydrates the glue stick and it is back to a fully working conditioned piece of school equipment again!! Marvellous yes!?

Of course, in these difficult times this is not only useful, but hugely cost-saving..

Thank you except now i have to find the cap, which might be why the glue was dried in the first place -_-

also you should probably change your title to dried instead of died :)

The idiots at Avery Dennison say there is no way to revive a dried up glue stick. What a bunch of clueless clowns.
