I lick parallel to the edge of the flap – never had any problem doing it that way. I’m guessing that you had tongue cuts. Maybe the reason I don’t suffer those is because I’m never short on saliva.




Note to self: Don’t clutter threads with gratuitous posts.

Pull-off strip AND security markings.
Hardly use envelopes any more, and I’m happy about that.

I have been running them under a trickling faucet, for years.
I don't know what's on them or in that glue!

I never lick one. If it's someone else's envelope, I use a glue stick or scotch tape. My own supply are all peel and stick.
