I think that there is also a "temporary" glue in stick form. You have to be careful to get any gluestick to go on evenly and not leave lumps.

I think weather played a huge part since I used to live in a pretty humid area and even letting the Aleenes dry for a few days didn't help.

well at least you didn't have to worry about ink pads drying out too fast, LOL

You are right about the temp glue sticks, its just that with a kid in the house I already had the other . Matter of fact I still have a couple of those, even though he is in college now. Kid figured out pretty quick that they didn't work very well and insisted on using mom's glue sticks instead.

Well, here in a desert climate the glue sticks seem to dry out enough to become unuseable in about 6 months.

I"m feeling your pain Fab! Some of my ink pads are very very old and still worked up until the recent couple of year excessive heat and drought conditions. I see a major purge of stuff that's no longer useable in my future.

Reinking works just fine. Just can't use the cheap generics here as they dry out too fast and the reinkers are not even available.

My inks have lasted a long time (I am in the desert too) but I store my inks in plastic bags then in Tupperware. I only have them out when I am using them.
Now glue is another thing, I dries up no matter what. So buy small amounts and try and use up.

It looks like you really take defensive measures. I do store them upside down to let gravity move the inks to the surface.

The ones I will have to replace were purchased before I knew to get the reinker too and are no longer in biz, i e... PSX and Sugarloaf for example.

My oldest are the Marvy Dye ink pads and the reinkers are still available on line and at some stamp shows.
