Needed something tiny, sticky and clear to stick a double row of bling to the upper edges of clear candle holders and the ladies in my cake club suggested Zots.  They truly are clear, ultra sticky and I also ended up using them to stick a string of bling to ribbons before putting them at the base of a wedding cake and to secure a string of rhinestones to a picture frame with cake flavors in it.  One caution, they're SO sticky, after using them for a half hour I was sure my fingerprints had been removed, so I used the blunt end of a pen to pick them up off of their papers and put into place.  One funny, on the way home from the wedding my hand kept sticking to the steering wheel.  Come to find out, I had a ZOTS stuck to the palm of my hand.  Made me smile.

I found them at Michaels Craft Store but I'll bet they're also at A.C. Moores and other craft stores.  What brand? They're called ZOTS, manufactured by Therm-o-web of Wheeling, IL.  And all it says on the package is "Clear Adhesive Dots" and in reading the fine print it says Do Not Touch Dots with Fingers. Remember my comment about my fingerprints pulling off (felt like that anyway).  They suggest you touch the object to be glued to the dot.  Makes sense but sometimes that's not practical - so that's why I used the end of a pen that wasn't the writing end.  Was so impressed with this discovery that I wanted to share.

Thats funny!!  I suppose it's better to have ZOTS on your hands than superglue on your lips though!

Took a while for me to picture this, I kept thinking you were talking about the candy called Zotz, my kids favorite, but it's not that sticky  :op

My florist granddaughter introduced me to them.  Finding so many uses for them.  They use them to "glue" two different sized dishes together in a nesting arrangement or secure moss - actually for several things.
