Pritt Stick is a stationery item that has been around for years and although we take it for granted now, in my job and home life it comes in very handy indeed.

You canít fail to know what Pritt Stick is really, but just in case it is basically a small tube of glue. It isnít liquid glue so isnít messy and you basically use it in the same way you would a lipstick by pulling the top off and twisting the base of the tube which slowly reveals the glue stick. By doing this you have complete control over the amount of stick you reveal so you donít reveal too much which could make the stick break off if too much pressure is applied to it so the less you reveal, the less likely you are to break the stick.

To the touch, pritt stick glue doesnít feel that sticky but it has never failed to work for me. Obviously it is not a super strength glue and wouldnít be any good for household DIY jobs as you would need a much stronger glue for these kinds of jobs. For general paperwork jobs though it is absolutely fine and sticks paper, card, felt etc rather well.

This comes in handy with my job which is 100% paperwork but also I have an 8 year old son who rather enjoys art and craft at home. We also get certain arty jobs for his homework too and the pritt stick is always the first item that we get out when starting a job like this.

It is great for children to use as it is easy to control and therefore you donít end up with horrendous glue marks on your carpets and furniture and the most you will end up with when using pritt stick is sticky fingers! The glue is white so it becomes invisible when using it on white paper which therefore makes your work look tidy.

The only minus points to pritt stick glue sticks are that it does tend to dry out quite easily so I would recommend replacing the top on the stick whenever it is not in use as if it is left without the lid on, even for a short space of time, it becomes unusable. The other thing is, at times especially when it has been used a few times, it can become a bit difficult to spread. By this point, it doesnít glide easily along paper and can sometimes be a little lumpy when dispenses as you donít always get a clean line of glue but you just tend to just keep going until the glue is where you want it!

The glue sticks are available in sizes of 10g or 20g and are just a couple of pounds each. They are available in most shops but especially stationery stores such as Smiths, Partners and Rymans. I have tried cheaper glue sticks from work but they just donít have the same effect. The glue is barely adhesive so it does prove that the originals really are the best.

Overall, although Pritt Sticks have been around for years, they are still as popular now as they ever have been. Cheaper versions just donít cut it for me and I only ever use Pritt Stick. They are well priced, last for ages (provided you donít let them dry out), and they are extremely handy, especially when working with children. I for one wouldnít be without a pritt stick in my house and therefore it comes with a recommendation from me.
