Has anyone ever used hot glue to keep certain pieces in place? To be clear, the kind that people use for small crafts. Let me explain:
I have the Simpsons house, and there are lots of accessories/pieces of furniture that are held in by tiles that have a stud on top. This results in the bigger things (piano, tool chest in garage, etc) to pop off very frequently while handling it.
Hot glue seems like a good option because once it cools down, it makes things stick together, but you can usually easily flake the glue off when applied to two hard, non-porous surfaces. I was hoping this would be the case with Lego. That it would not melt it, and more importantly, I could cleanly remove it if I ever decide to change things up.

Also, gun temperature can make a difference. Even with the craft stuff, if it's too hot, you can permanently mark the plastic.
In any event, you should try it out on some sacrificial bricks first to see how it looks.
