A device for moistening the adhesive of a sheet material such as the flap of an envelope or a postage stamp, is disclosed having a container with hinged lid. A moistened sponge is stored in the container having raised a step adjacent to the latch closure of the lid with the front wall of the container and is provided with a deep recess adjacent to the hinge connection of the lid with the container. A slider is movably carried on the lid and includes a pressure plate adapted to press against the top surface of the inserted sheet material forcibly urging the adhesive surface onto the moistened sponge step. The slider has two positions, one position with the pressure plate projecting into the recess when the lid is closed and the other position when advanced to be adjacent the step. A limit stop is carried on the container beneath the sponge step for limiting pivotal movement of the lid to prevent latching of the lid when the slider is in its advanced position.
