Default E6000 makes me sick!

Does anyone else have this problem? I thought I'd try it out, because I'm scared the glue gun won't hold over time. And it almost instantly makes me sick. I even tried using it outside, & I had the same problem !

What would be a good alternative to the E6000? Or does it just take time getting used too?

thanks

LOL I'm a fruit - I LIKE the smell (now, don't you go drawing conclusions!! haha) - but then again, I love the smell of oil paints, too LOL

I'm sorry it makes you sick - an option would be a high temp glue gun or good old sewing

LOL! I used to like the smell of gasoline, but I guess I'm just more sensitive to smells. Maybe I can wear a gas mask or somthing!

If I don't have a fan on, the fumes can make me kind of light-headed. If I have a fan on (particularly one blowing air in from outside), I am fine-can't smell it. If that doesn't work, the glue gun holds fine, I think... or I think some use fabritac... never tried it, so I don't know if there are fumes. HTH

I don't like E6000. It was so messy and gave me a headache. I use a high temp glue gun and I don't have any problems. The ONLY think I use the E6000 for is gluing bottlecaps to bows.
