Remove Dried Hot Glue Easily

Goli Mohammadi

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

MAKE magazine reader John Mangan shared a nifty simple trick with us: you can remove dried hot glue with isopropyl alcohol and cotton swabs. He made a video demonstration to share the knowledge, I posted it on Makezine yesterday, and it’s been well-received. Since there are no shortage of crafts that utilize hot glue, I’m sure crafters will find this helpful too, though I’m not sure how it would work on fibers. Check it out over on Makezine.
