Cleaning Up Squeeze Out

One of the most common questions we get at WWGOA is, “How do I clean up glue squeeze out on my projects?” I recently had Bob from Titebond Glue in my shop, and the expert gave the answer you’ve all been looking for. If you use glue, you HAVE to watch this video.

Bob and the folks at Titebond took a scientific approach (watch the video to hear what they did) to getting the best answer for us woodworkers, and here it is. Wipe that squeeze out with a wet rag. I’ve been slicing tacky glue from the surface with a putty knife since forever!! I can’t wait to try this new approach.

Share tips, start a discussion or ask one of our experts or other students a question.

    I have always used this method on all types of woods and have never had a problem sanding sufficiently. It is important to make it "wet enough" so the glue is totally cleaned from the surface.
