Pick them out of the trash if you can and try this:

The top pops off. Sure enough, it does. Take the little spout off and clean it really good. Use a needle to dig in there if you have to. Run hot water through the spout that the stickles come out of. Sometimes, they get a clump of glitter in them that keeps them from working properly. Often, if you dislodge the clump, they work just fine. HTH

HI Jennifer ~ I use Stickles all the time and have never had a problem. Could be a bad batch - even though they are "only" $2.00 I would take them back and get a new bottle or refund.

Have you tried a stick pin down thru the opening?

Sorry your having issues ~

I don't think it's the product - we all use them at our LSS.

Have a GREAT weekend ~

I've found that sometimes there's a skootch of dried glue in the tips. Taking the tip off and washing it in water and using a pin or a needle to unclog it is the best way to go.

take it out of the trash mine get clogged all the time. I have to stick a pin, piercer or thumb tack to unclog it (which ever is closer)

I keep a pin stuck in a piece of paper in the box my Stickles live in. That way if I find a clog, I don't have to waste time searching for anything to unstick it with.

I keep a little container of bulletin board push-pins on the top of my work table. I use them all the time for everything from unclogging bottles to piercing holes for brads.

I get them at a LSS as well. Archivers also carries them, and I've seen them at J's.

I own every single colour and since I started storing them top down, I don't have any more problem with clogging.

I will have to keep in mind that we can remove the top. Might be useful.
