Addditional Uses for Elmer's Glue

Earlier today I got a splinter and my wife said that she heard all I needed to do was pour on a drop of Elmer's Glue, let it dry and then peel it off. It worked like magic. So of course I started looking for other uses and here are several that I found in various places. Some I had heard of before like preventing broken shoelaces from fraying by dipping the end of the shoelace into the glue. But a number of them were new to me. Here they are:

Seal plants by using Elmer’s Glue-All to seal all ends of pruned stems and branches. This protects against insects and excessive moisture loss.

Fix small holes in the wall by filling the small nail holes with a drop of glue before painting the walls. Better than toothpaste!

Tighten a screw hole by soaking a cotton ball in glue, stuffing the cotton ball into the hole, and letting it dry for 24 hours. Now, you’ll be able use a screwdriver to put a new screw in the hole.

Just as a precaution I'm adding a link in case you need to remove it from your clothes.

This might sound weird, but it's really good for removing whiteheads from around your nose.

Thanks for the helpful hints John. I will have to try them. I never thought of using the glue for nail holes!
