You will not win dear glue gun!
This is a fast easy way to get relief from those pesky little burns we tend to get from glue guns. It may not happen often, but when it does it HURTS! Am I right?

So right after you burn yourself and you're hollering in pain, instead of just running it under cold water, you can use a cold bag of tea to find peace.

And the great thing about this, you can use it for any kind of burns you have! It's nice and cold so it stops the hurting + it's good for your skin!

Putting toothpaste on your finger helps you relieve the burning sensation if it's still there, too! :)

When I got a HUGE glob of glue on my finger and was finished sitting there waitinf for the extreme pain to be relieved, I used the tea bag method and then put a little bit of toothpaste on a band-aid and put it over my finger :)

Glue gun burns are on top of my list for worst pain experiences ever. ^^ Let's hope I'll never have to try, but if I do, I'll remember that!
