MAKE reader John Mangan (siliconghost) wrote in to share a nifty simple trick with us: you can remove dried hot glue with isopropyl alcohol and cotton swabs. He writes: “I literally stumbled on this while working with hot glue over 20 years ago at a previous job. It ended up being a ‘major discovery’ for how we conducted our ‘re-work’ on defective parts.” He made this video demonstration to share the knowledge. We also love how he has the cotton swap container attached to the alcohol bottle.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
