Don't Use Smelly Glue Fremont NE

Don't Use Smelly Glue

Don't Use Smelly Glue

Buying glue by the gallon costs less, but  it may not be a good investment if you use glue infrequently. After a while, leftover glue can develop a bad smell. According to the folks at Franklin Adhesives, your bestbet is to toss the old stuff and buy a fresh bottle. Glues have a preservative in them to keep bacteria or fungus from setting up shop. But the

Butconsider what your project is worth and whether you want to risk jointfailure for the price of a bottle of glue. Most woodworking glue has a one-yearshelf life. Even though it's tempting to buy a big bottle tosave money, it's better to buy glue in a size youknow you'll use up in a year. Here's a good tip: Write the purchase date on the glue bottle. That way, you'll know when it's time to buy fresh.
