    I wanted to purchase pre-filled envelope moisteners for use at work. I have used products in the past that even have a bit of adhesive in the fluid, which really helps secure envelope flaps. Unfortunately, I could not find such a product at Staples. All I could find was this 2 ounce, refillable bottle with a sponge applicator on top. I figured, why not? It must serve the same purpose...I was a bit mistaken. While this product was inexpensive and is convenient to use, it dispenses far too much water. I often wind up with puddles on the envelope I want to seal, rendering it almost useless. This product works in a pinch, but if you have other options, use them!

    I'm not sure that you can use up 400 characters commenting on a small teal blue , plastic bottle that you only put about two (2) ounces of water into before you put on the small yellow twist top with the yellow sponge attached to it. However, I have decided to give it the "old-college-effort" (so-to-speak) and figure out whether or not it can be done without being repetitive, and it looks like I'm getting pretty close to that number, so in closing, I will just add that it would be best if you did not stick a pin in the side of the bottle, unless you want it to leak all over your desk and make a mess. How did I do?

    Makes moistening lots of envelopes a snap. Though be careful as the water comes out a wee bit fast (even when not squeezing). Well worth the couple bucks though!

    Bad quality, bottle leaked constantly and would get liquid all over envelope. Sponge tip wore out quickly and would leave pieces on envelope. Had to buy another brand. Wouldn't recommend.

    Picked this up so I wouldn't have to lick about 35 Christmas card envelopes, and it worked great! Handy little thing to have around.

    Using this sure beats licking envelopes or using a dampened sponge to seat the envelopes.

    Used for moistening envelopes for a mass mailing. Was a real hit since it replaced having to moisten the envelopes the old-fashioned way... by licking. The distribution of water through the sponge top was just right.

    I purchased three of these bottles and two of them are unusable. The water pours from the bottle and saturates the envelope. Only one of them is usable.

    I bought this product because I hate to lick envelopes. But the minute I tried to use it the sponge came right off.

    The design idea is great! Needs a different type of glue that is not affected by water.

    Found out about this little thing about 5 years ago, now I always have to have one around the house. Way better than having to lick stamps and envelopes.

    The moistener leaks badly if you turn it upside on the envelope to use it. Holding it upright works ok but is hard to do by yourself without knocking it over and spilling it on the table. Needs improvement.

    ...and leaves little crumbles everywhere. Too bad, I liked the idea of not having to buy new ones every time the fluid ran out. Now I'm looking for something more durable. Like the old-fashioned porcelain wheel with reservoir.

    This moistener was easy to use and got the job done. The only con I have is that it sometimes wet the envelope too much, which I'm sure you can get use to.

    We had over 100 wedding invitations to mail out, so this saved us the trouble of licking the envelopes and risking paper cuts.

    While this item satisfies it's purpose, it is far from perfect. When sitting the sponge will dry up, then when you need to use it a bit of a squeeze will get it wet...too wet in most cases. If you really don't want to use your tongue it is certainly an option, but it's a bit to messy for my taste.

    Not worth it. Used about 10 times (2 or 3 envelopes each time) and sponge fell off.

    You're better off using a slightly wet paper towel to dampen the envelope adhesive. After one days use the sponge broke off and too much water comes out at once.

    The larger sponge is better made and works better than the traditional version of this product. I hope the sponge holds up.

    In my line of work I have to send out large envelopes that have glue seals.
    Once i bought this, I no longer had to use tape to seal them (No way I am licking them)
    Small enough it is handy on the shelf or desk...and large enough that it does not need run out of water
