I usually "tap" the bottom of the CA bottle flat onto the building board immediately after use and this aids in keeping the CA liquid from staying up at the tip of the applicator. I use the small applicators from Carl Goldberg and they work nicely. Dropping the tips into acetone, as posted above, is a nice idea. Sometimes I just wipe the CA tip clean with an acetone dampened cloth after use and most all the residual "crud" is removed; if done quickly and without waiting too long the CA doesn't harden onto the CA tip as it would if you waited a few days.

Soft landings,
