Try a sponge or a washcloth. but wring it out pretty good first, don’t want to get your envelopes too wet.  Good luck… 😛

sponge works but a glue stick is even better!

I use a slightly damp sponge when I’m closing a bunch of envelopes 🙂

I used to have to send out mailers at my old job and I had one of those sponge on a stick things that have a little container to put water into and it had the perfect dampness for sealing an envelope!

Uh, I made my fiance do it. I couldn’t trust him to do much else (:-P).

@monitajb – haha! too funny, it reminds me of my fiance, I asked him to put stamps on the save the dates and after like 10 min, he asked why they weren’t sticking to the paper, I look up and he is licking the stamps, they were self-adhesive stickers…clearly THAT was too much for him!

@june42011: Ewww he was licking the sticker stamps!  That must have tasted worse than licking envelopes!

Glue sticks. So much better!

LOL I felt the same way with our save the dates. I tried using a wet cloth but it didn’t work for some reason so I was stuck licking them all!

I’m glad I’m planning on making our own envelopes with the DIY invites cause I don’t think I’d be able to stand licking that many envelopes again!

Ugh I hated doing that! It seemed like the envelopes we got were especially gross tasting too.
