OR....tear off a small tuft of a Scotch Brite scouring pad (we used to use steel wool but it'll rust) and pack that tuft into the stripped screwhole, then re-install the screw. It's an old Damage Control measure.

Try it. Ya can always later use some goop brand as mentioned above. Steve

This is true for outside applications use a waterproof glue, the results would still be the same.

First where is this screw hole? And what does it do, There are many solutions and not all of them involve chemicals as such

For all wood applications you can stuff toothpicks in the holes so the screw will grab again.
