Sorry I'm bugging everyone today but here's another question. I used to use glue sticks (I know GASP) to adhere my cut out words/titles, I switched to a xyron and lately it's been ticking me off. How do you ladies and gents get all the icky sticky glue out from in between the letters. I've tried rubbing and it gets some of the adhesive off, but what's left just turns dirty looking the more I rub. So it's gonna be back to the glue sticks if I can't figure something out.

no 'gasp' from me, I use glue sticks.

I've had pretty good luck with a simple 'remover'

There is a little square rubber glue erasor made by Xyron. I have found that is the only thing that works for me. Once I glue it down, I just run the glue erasor over it and it takes all the excess glue off the front like a magnet.

But it is not an eraser in texture. It is more like a piece of flexible rubber. I bought mine 3 years ago and you can't even tell its been used except that it is a little dirty on some fo the corners.

I use glue stick also. Never had a problem and still adhered from pages I made since 2004. I don't understand why some people don't like them.

They are also easier to use and cheaper to buy.

A glue stick that you use in a hot glue gun can be used to help remove adhesive residue --- just rub the stick gently over the area. I have used this to remove price sticker residue on items for yaars.

I use spray adhesive...super sticky and no gunky residue or ripping of my delicate diecuts. I just keep a box on hand to spray into.

I use this square eraser thing too. It works great for getting just about anything sticky off. There are glue pens out there you can use also.

I believe the square eraser that had been referred to here is much like this item. I use this brand myself. It works very nicely for this and other adhesives. It also erases rub ons that get put in the wrong place.

I've never gotten the hang of the xyron. I've tried a few other adhesives but I for letters/titles and other small objects I really like this glue;

Mono Multi Liquid Glue

It's cheap, works great, lasts a long time and has a very fine tip that is great for applying to small lettering. I love it!

Thanks for all the great replies!!! I will definitly try some of them. I am glad to know that I'm not the only one that still uses glue sticks For you ladies that have the eraser thingies, where did you get them? Here or elsewhere? I'm pretty sure I haven't seen them at our J's or M's.

Mstasha,

I'm so glad you asked that question 'cause I have the xyron and I hate those gooey sticky stuff around whatever I put through as well and also when the Ziggy 2-Way Glue don't dry as fast as I want to and leave wet marks. Someone at my LSS mentioned the glue or adhesive eraser and I've looking for it all over @ J's and ACM and they don't carry any. The lady @ ACM just showed me a rubber cement eraser but I thought that was kind of too rough to use on pp.

The square erasers are made by xyron and you would think they would sell them wherever they sell xyron, since they are made to get off the excess glue.

Xyron is definitely the easiest way to go with letters from my Slice!

If you can't find one I'll check my local scrapbook store where I bought mine.
