Vaseline Is All You Need To Keep Your Bottle Of Glue From Drying Shut
If you're not diligent about wiping off excess sealant from a glue's cover after each use, there's a good chance it will dry shut.
To prevent this from happening, use Vaseline.
To stop the glue from drying out and plastering the top shut, smear a light coat of Vaseline under the cap
and around the rim of the container before storing it.
Vaseline contains non-toxic waxes and mineral oils that weaken the glue's adhesion, allowing you to thoroughly cover the threads of the cap with your finger safely.
