Dear Home Ec 101,
Is there a trick to not supergluing the lid onto the superglue tube? They have a tendency to turn into a one-time-use product!

There actually is a very simple solution for this problem. Coat the threads of the cap with petroleum jelly. Super glue is activated by the moisture in the air (this is why it takes longer to dry in drier climates) and the threading does not provide an airtight seal. The petroleum jelly should seal any tiny cracks and keep the tube fresh for the next use. If you have a tube with just a clogged tip, snip off the end. The application won’t be as accurate, but at least it won’t all be wasted.
