Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

Just curious.

  • Oxidation. The glue becomes more solid after being exposed to air.

  • Water in the glue is makes it come out of the bottle & because of the water, it isn't sticky. Air is what makes the water in the glue evaporate, which makes the glue become sticky then adheres it to another object. The glue "dries" when all of the water has evaporated. If a small amount is left in the bottle, it will eventually dry out because there is air in the bottle, then it will stick to the bottle.

  • that is interesting... Probably because there is so much in it that it can't get hard and also it isn't in contact with air

  • there's not enough air in there i think when it's pretty empty it dries to the inside

  • It stays liquid because it doesn't come in contact with air. After it comes out it dries and hardens.
