Fabric Adhesive for Securing Yarn Tails and Knots

I stumbled across a Fabric Adhesive the other day at Michael's Craft Store. I had been looking for something that would secure my yarn tails and knots. It is washable and drys clear, although it does stand out on black yarn if you were to use it in a visible place. The name of the product is Fabri-Tac by Beacon Adhesives. I was thinking this would work on the tails and knots in the granny squares as well and keep them secure, so not to slip out of place after washing, as it the case in many instances where there are tails.
