    I was tired of my modge podge applicator always being dried up each time I went to use it, and use to just place the syringe in a cup of water, but the water kept evaporating in between uses. So I took a small gatorade bottle and drilled a hole the exact size of the syringe, pushed the syringe in for a snug fit, filled the bottle with water and kept the cap on, and the modge podge syringe is always ready to go now, I have used this same syringe for a couple of years now.

  5. I use an applicator bottle - I think I got it from Jpe Coombs - that has a small wire that goes in the tip. I never have any problems.

    Will not work with just any bottle. Must be an Orange Flavored Gatorade bottle. ;)

    Good post "T"! I use the applicator tip and bottles sold by Van Dyke. I learned to remove the tips and place them in a small jar with a lid containing water. Nothing is as frustrating as spending 20-30 minutes trying to get a clogged tip working again. I'm in the south, will and "RC" cola bottle work, LOL!

    Some wise ole taxidermist from Delaware turned me on to the same tips that dentist use to apply filling material from a syringe. It works great.

    hmm just thinking why not just put the whole thing in the bottle of water and cap it???

    How would you remove the syringe and not spill a drop of water? Drill a hole in the neck, and you will never need to remove the cap.

    Ok I will let you guys in on a little secret. I poke my syringes in a peice of foam and when I am ready to use them I heat the tip up with a lighter and go to work. Only takes a second. No bottles

  16. I also use the applicator bottles. When I am done using it I just wash the tip out with warm water and place a piece of saran wrap over the bottle and replace the applicator tip back on bottle

    I just squirt a little water into the cap that goes on over the needle, snap it back on , works great.

    I use to do that, but it will dry out eventually if you do not use it often.
