Stop Glue Caps From Sticking!

Introduction: Stop Glue Caps From Sticking!

It's happened to all of us at some point. You grab your glue / adhesive, go to twist off the lid or cap and it's sealed shut! In this instructable I will show what to do in order to make removal of the cap easy after its already been used.

Step 1: Materials Needed

Materials used:

Petroleum jelly

Your glue / adhesive

Step 2: Coat Threads on the Tube or Bottle of Glue

Take the petroleum jelly and using your finger coat the threads the cap screws onto.

That's it!

The glue can't adhere to the petroilum jelly preventing. Even if glue gets onto the threads it won't stick.
