Smaller Hole Makes Glue Refills Spill-Free
Every time I tried to refill my small glue bottle from a gallon jug, I wound up spilling glue. The glue ran so slowly that I'd impatiently give the big bottle a squeeze to speed things up. The resulting surge would overflow the opening in the smaller bottle.
I solved this problem by drilling a 1⁄4 " hole in the cap of the gallon jug. This allows me to squeeze a smaller, more controlled stream into the smaller bottle. To reseal the larger bottle, I place a piece of plastic wrap over the top before screwing on the cap. When my current jug is empty, I'll save the pouring cap to use on the next jug of glue.
