How To Seal an Envelope– Without Licking It!

Raise your hand if the thought of licking an envelope closed sounds repulsive. Me too! I don’t know what they put in that stuff, but it seems to get nastier and nastier. Do you remember the Seinfield episode where George’s fiance died from licking too many envelopes? I do not want that to happen to any of you. LOL! :)

This tip came out of sheer necessity. For my husband’s church calling, he sends out newsletters to missionaries serving all over the world. Over 200 at a time. And I help him. No way am I going to lick 200 envelopes! I know they make those little foam tipped water containers that do the job, but we didn’t have one, and I didn’t want to run to the store.

So I came up with the brilliant idea of using an old sponge brush. I just keep a small bowl of water on the table, dip the sponge brush in it periodically, and wet the edge of the envelopes. So much better than the old fashioned tongue-method, don’t you think?
