No more ooze

Prevent oozing. Linda Hartung explains how.
To prevent G-S Hypo Cement from oozing out of the tube, keep it fluid longer, and eliminate the need to repeatedly replace the cap while I'm working, I moisten a makeup sponge with isopropyl alcohol and then insert the tip of the glue tube. The sponge acts as a temporary stopper until I'm done with the glue for the day. Plus, I can stick the cap in as well so I won't lose it.
