Storing Glue

The solution to slow squeezing glue is storing the bottle upside down. This not only gets it to the tip faster. It also extends the life of the glue by keeping air out of the bottle. But how do you do that? If you have a bench or shelf in your garage that you don’t mind modifying a bit, you can drill a hole in it that’s slightly larger than the diameter of the glue bottle’s neck. This allows the bottle to rest in the hole in the upside down position. OR, you can re-use an old ketchup bottle that’s designed to store upside down. Clean out the bottle and transfer the glue into it . That way you can store it upside down no matter where you are and the glue is always right at the spout when you need it.
