Fix Just About Anything With Sugru Moldable Glue

Something broken? Well, fix that thing!


   As a mother to four boys, I seem to be always fixing things. Boys tend to be wild and rough so they tend to break things. My boys are also curious so they like to take things about to see how they work.  The frustration is the glue does not always fix the item because it does not bond or the glue is not flexible. Our most recent broken item was a ball. The plastic cover on the ball broke. My son wanted to just cut off the plastic cover but I said no as this made the ball bounce better. I knew over time the tear would get bigger. There really was not a solution to fix the ball so we just left it as is. I wish there was a way to fix this ball. Well, there was and I was so excited.


   I heard about this mouldable glue that can fix almost anything. It starts out like putty and then turns to rubber so it fixes broken things like balls and more. I love that you can shape it to fill in gaps and missing parts. It also is strong and dishwasher proof so I could use it on broken dishes too. It comes it lots of colors so it can match the item that you are fixing. It only needs air to cure. So I just had to try this play dough-like product to see if it would fix my son's ball. I also decided to try it on a chipped dish.


I opened up the package of Sugru, I used pink as I wanted to show the contrast. I had the option of using red as Sugru comes in many colors. I formed the putty around the plastic on the ball and around the chip in the dish. I loved that I was able to smooth it out and I had 30 minutes to work with it before it started to harden. The putty did not stick to my fingers either. After 24 hours the pink Sugru felt like rubber. My son played with his ball, bouncing it and the plastic did not separate. The dish also looked amazing. I can even wash it in the dishwasher. This silicone rubber stays stuck until I remove it.  Oh, it is also temperature resistant to 356F and down to -58F.



   This mouldable glue has many uses from attaching handles back on pot lids, fixing cracked plastic to saving toys. If it is made of wood, plastic, glass, metal, ceramic, or fabric, Sugru will probably stick to it. I love that you can buy a sample pack with many different colors and it lasts for a year as long as you don't open the foil pack, stick it in the fridge for longer storage time.
  


So go to Sugru's website and social media pages to learn more about this amazing 'fix that thing" mouldable glue. you can also buy some to have on had to fix all those things that break.

  9. That's great that it fixes those things. Can you take the purple stuff off once it's molded, or will it remain on there? I can see my kids just picking it off again. But that's just my kids.
