This item is GREAT! So great that I bought 2 of them. They are the best thing for moistening envelopes, much better than all that licking and then having that nasty adhesive taste in your mouth. What more can I say? WOW! Man, you have got to get yourself one of these things RIGHT NOW! Turn off your computer, get dressed, and drive to your nearest Staples store for one of these time-saving devices. You won't regret it! You can seal all your envelopes lickity-split!

The pads wear out quickly and are not replaceable, even though they could be. The plastic bottles are not marked as recyclable. It would make more sense to be able to reuse the bottles, which don't wear out, and just buy new sponge tops.

Comments about Staples® Envelope Moistener:

What can you say, simple is the best. I don't like the ones tha have the gooey glue in them and they cost a lot more. These just use the simple tap water and aren't messy like the glue ones.

The lowly envelope moistener

By Dave McMahan

Comments about Staples® Envelope Moistener:

I don't sit at home thinking, "what will be the next thing that I write a review on?" But when presented with a chance to review a selection of recently purchased items from Staples, I figured if there is any item that has probably not been reviewed it would be an envelope moistener. So here goes.

As envelope moisteners go, this is one. The bottle holds 2 ounces of fluid, and my suspicion is that water is the fluid of choice although the item came without instructions to confirm that suspicion. I bring up the lack of instructions mostly to point out to prospective owners of this product that there is a hidden feature. There is actually an On/Off function within the lid assembly. By rotating the upper ring directly below the yellow foam pad clockwise or counterclockwise, it is possible to adjust the amount of water (or your personal choice of fluids) that is released from the bottle. Keep in mind that this is an assumption on my part, again for lack of any instructions. Then again, having knowledge of this 'feature' isn't really that significant given the fact that more water is released from the inadequate seal of the threaded lid than the little hole under the foam pad. With that in mind, I have found that simply squeezing the bottle over an open area of the desk, then blotting up the puddle with the foam pad, and finally transferring that water onto the adhesive portion of the envelope works quite well.

Wow, that was fun. I think I find something else to review. But to be serious, the unit does leak a bit, but it only cost 79 cents. Much better this than having my tongue glued to the roof of my mouth. :)
