A short time ago I found a tip on the Web that I had to follow-up on. Rockler sells a silicone bristled glue applicator brush for $4.99:
When the white/yellow glue dries on the bristles, it peels and flakes off with little resistance. Nice. Buy the brush once and you won’t have to replace it any time soon.
This tip I found was even better. Your local dollar store sells silicone basters for the kitchen for a fifth of the price of Rockler’s offering. Here’s what I picked up today:
The three large brushes on the left were a buck a piece, the two smaller brushes came as a duet for the same price.
The best part? With a little soap and water washup, I can use these in the kitchen to help baste the Thanksgiving bird. How’s that for frugal?
