Question Help!! Left Zig 2-Way Glue Pen Open - Fix??

Okay I was a dork, I left my 2-way Zig (chisel tip) pen open over night (cap off). Now the tip is hard and the glue won't come down to the tip, is this pen a lost cause or can I save it. Help !!!

Since you have nothing to lose, I would try putting the tip in warm water and trying to get the hardened glue off. I don't use my chisel tip very much, just the pen end. It has hardened from time to time and I've just peeled the dry glue off.

I have pulled the tip off before, turned it over and used it. It dripped a bit, but I only used it when I needed alot of it, such as placing a front on a folded card, or a large scrapbooking item. I also placed it in a ziplock back and kept it upright in a coffee cup.

Well, I soaked it for 10 minutes in WARM water. It is back to working. The tip is a little fuzzy but the blue glue comes all the way down to the tip now. YEAH !!!! I don't use it often but when I need it I'll have it. Thanks!!!
