Is it just me or does your Fabri~tac tend to get clogged? Everytime I pick up the bottle, there is either glue oozing out of the top or it is clogged up and I need to put a needle thru it. Also, how long of a shelf life does the glue have? It almost seems like it gets thicker after awhile. I only puncture the top with a needle a couple of times, So I wouldn't think the air would affect it. Please somebody tell me the secret to Fabri~Tac
So when you cut most of the tip off, the glue doesn't come oozing out? I have bought 4 new bottles because I keep trying to cut the top off, but no matter how little I cut off, the glue will ooze out.
I guess it does ooze a little so I try to tilt as little as possible and go super slow. After awhile I got the hang of it. Plus if there is a lot of build up around the edge I just used that as kind of a brush to smooth the glue around.

I usually prick the top with a pin and when I've done for the day, I wipe the top off with a damp rag to get any excess glue off before putting the top on.
The glue does get thicker in time. Mine got thicker faster when I was leaving it on my sewing table that has a lot of direct sun contact. I leave it in a dark chest now, making sure it stands up right. It hasn't gotten nearly as thick. You can put some acetone in it to thin if it you need to. I've tried that once or twice. It does work, but I have been too afraid to put too much acetone in at once, so I probably don't use enough.
