    Warning About Elmer's Glue

    Just a heads up for all of you that use Elmer's School Glue. I just noticed this when I went to buy more glue. Elmer's has a new glue called Elmer's Glue-All. It's in the same bottle as the school glue and is also white. The only difference I saw was the label. I don't think Glue-All is washable. It was right next to the school glue and would be easy to pick up the wrong one if you didn't look at the label. We spend too much time and money on our quilts to ruin one with the wrong glue.

    The Glue All has been around a long time, maybe even longer than the washable school glue. Just do pay attention to which one you are getting as it is more permanent.

    Thanks. It is easy to pick up the wrong bottle. When I do that, I send it to the grands or donate it for School Supplies for Kids through our community.

    It always pays to read the label on anything you buy. I'm always amazed at how many people just blindly grab stuff off the shelf and then complain when they get the wrong thing.

    Definitely look for the word "WASHABLE" in big letters. The bottles are very similar, and have been for as long as I can remember. I saw a clear kind of glue that also said WASHABLE. I brought back about 4 bottles of the washable stuff to try it.

    All my Elmer's Washable School glue has a black chalk board label on the front of the bottle. The Glue All does not.

    I agree. It is very easy to pick up the wrong kind of something when careless people just stick it anywhere handy.

    Thanks! I have no children at home and am not familiar with the different types of "school glue". You've given me a great "heads up" and may have prevented a wrong buy on my part! It's so great to get tips like this on this Board!

    I think that Glue-All version also comes in glue sticks and I know it comes in the glue pens because I bought one awhile back - don't worry; I knew what it was. I wanted it for something else.

    I bought a bottle of Glue-All once because it came in a bigger size than the School Glue. I wrote to the manufacturer and asked them if it was washable. They said that it is. I ended up returning it anyway because I just wasn't sure.

    I may have to do an experiment to see if there is any difference in them.
