My hermie doesn't seem to be rolling and I think it may be the glue clogging it up on the insides. Has anybody ever cleaned one and if so how?

My permanent herma always clogged up. I finally gave up on it. I cleaned it with un-do before, but eventually it clogs up again. I still use the repositional herma. I don't seem to have problems with it.

If you are using permanent it gets really gunked up, but whatever you are using you can clean it; use a grease cutter like Dawn, or Spray n Wash or 409 or something like that. You do have to really work on it to clean it to.

I use the permanent too and it always gunks up. I just "pick" at it and keep on scrapping!

My repositionable seems to be getting clogged a lot lately too. I try rolling the excess off in a ball, rubbing it off, but it is getting annoying. I hate to give up on it because it is my favorite adhesive. I think the newer boxes seem to clog more.

I've noticed this, too. I have a big stash of the cases (not the refills). I'm tossing them as I finish them up and if they stop rolling. When I'm out, I'm going to switch adhesive. Mine are older, so that may be part of my problem.
