Question Cleaning CA glue dispensers

What can I place a nozzle stopped up with CA into to dissolve the glue? I used to do this, but cannot remember what it was.

Acetone

Find a pint size mason jar or quart, put your nozzles in and fill up with acetone and twist the jar lid tight. This way the acetone will not evaporate (you will have burnt less brain cells ) and you will always have a clean re-usable nozzle ready when you need it.

I just go and buy a large number of them at a time and throw them away when they get cut too low and are too covered to use. Monty here on the forum has good prices on the bottles and the tops.

I agree with the feeling that we acetone guys are cheap.

I have a small plastic jar that I throw my small tips and even the screw-on tips from the bottles when clogged. This way, I have a replacement readily available when needed.
