How To Better Trouble Shoot The Best Glue Ever

Charity here with tips for how to better trouble shoot the writing cap for the Best Glue Ever. The No-Clog Writing Cap from ScraPerfect makes it easy to write with glue or paint. This Writing Cap also lets you put one tiny dot of glue exactly where you want it.
But what do you do if you notice glue seeping out between the writing tip and the blue collar? What a waste, what a mess! This happens when the inner pink tip is not screwed into the glue cap. Unscrew the blue collar, clean all the bits up, and place the pink tip back into the base cap. A clockwise, 1/4 turn will seat the writing tip securely. Screw the blue collar back on and you are ready to craft!
If you do not clean your writing tip after its last use, then leave it for a long time you might have a tragedy like the one pictured below. The glue has sealed the writing tip to the white pin top. It was quite stuck so I gave it a firm tug. The writing tip pulled right out of the pink collar it is meant to be permanently bound to!
The Good News:
The Best Glue Ever is so strong and so versatile that now the writing tip is permanently bound to the white pin top.
The Bad News:
The No-Clog Writing Cap is permanently damaged. I will need to get a new one.
The Moral of the Story:
Always clean your Writing Cap, especially if you will not be using it for awhile.
For frequent use simply rinse the cap with water when you have finished crafting for the day. Store glue up-right and you should have no sticky problems. If the whole cap assembly is stuck together Do Not get out the pliers and start tugging. Unscrew the cap assembly from the glue bottle. Spritz inside and seams with Best Cleaner Ever. Let cap sit for 10 to 20 min. The cap should disassemble easily. If not, spritz again and let sit.

Excellent!!!! One more...if you damage the tip, all is not lost. You can buy extra tips for $1 on the ScraPerfect website! They are handy to have around anyway! When you've got your tips soaking in cleaner, just pop in a new one then keep the others for the next time.

TRY THIS! Apply a bit of Scraperfect's Best Cleaner Ever™ to the pin each time you close the cap. This will keep the pin and tip clean on an ongoing basis without having to do a major clean. (This tip brought to you by Penny, our Design Team Leader!)
