Super Glue for Heel

[Image: www.pinterest.com/]

 

At one point or another we’ve suffered from having damaged or broken shoes. What do you do when your heel breaks or when the rubber sole is separating from the rest of the shoe? Before tossing them, try Super Glue! Along with repairing furniture and other household items, Super Glue is strong enough to hold your shoes together and repair them for an increased lifespan.

 

Reattaching Your Sole

 

Step 1. Start by cleaning the area from any glue residue with alcohol and a cloth. Doing this step first will ensure that the sole adheres well.

 

Step 2. Apply Super Glue to the shoe and sole, and press them together firmly. Make sure to quickly wipe away any glue that is squeezed out.

 

Step 3. Put weight on top of the shoe so that the parts bond. You can use heavy objects you have around your house that fit inside your shoe and place them inside to apply the weight.

 

Reattaching Your Heel

 

Step 1. Super Glue works wonders in a high heel emergency as well. Prior to gluing, use some sandpaper on the heel and shoe to get rid of any glue residue.

 

Step 2. Apply Super Glue and make sure to take your time with aligning the heel properly. Super Glue dries very fast so don’t take too much time.

 

Step 3. Apply significant amount of pressure to hold the heel in place and let them dry for at least an hour before wearing to ensure proper bonding.

 

Super Glue can get you out of shoe emergencies when you have no shoe repair service near your home or office. It provides a strong bond that can leave your shoes looking as good as new! Show us your shoe repairs that you have done using super glue on our Facebook page.

Super Glue Drawer Organizer Edited

[Image: http://www.pinterest.com/]

Are you tired of having messy drawers but find it difficult to keep it organized? This simple project can help you organize any drawer in your house without spending a fortune. Using strong adhering Super Glue and cardboard you can create these dividers. Creating this drawer divider will be a great inspiration to keep everything organized; it will even help declutter your junk drawer!

 

Materials Needed:

Cardboard, foam board, or craft board

Super Glue

Contact Paper – optional

 

Step 1: Measure Your Drawer

Measure your drawer and determine the length and width of your dividers. Decide what objects will be placed in that drawer and lay the contents on the floor in front of you. Create a layout of what needs to be separated and decide whether you will need multiple dividers or if 4 will work. The amount and size of each divider is entirely up to you.

 

Step 2: Divide and Conquer

Measure and cut out the dividers. Using the same layout you created with your objects, glue the dividers accordingly. By using Super Glue to connect the dividers, you will have created a sturdier divider as opposed to using a hot glue gun which can come apart easily. Also, by gluing the dividers to each other it allows you to remove the dividers from the drawer whenever you want.

If you would like to add some colors to your drawers, you can decorate your dividers with contact paper.

 

Step 3: Get Organized

Place the dividers into the drawer and organize your belongings. This is a great way to stay organized and to see everything clearly inside your drawers.

We often have to repurchase things because we cannot find them in our messy drawers. With drawer dividers we are able to see everything clearly because each item now has a place! Show us your drawer divider designs on our Facebook page or share with us your crafty ideas about how to stay organized.

Are you looking for last-minute idea on how to decorate your home this Thanksgiving holiday? With relatives flying in from all around the world, you want your home to looks it’s very best. Here is a last-minute arrangement you can add to your home with just the use of some pinecones and Super Glue.

Creating a wreath is easy and is a great way to add some fall décor to the outside of your home.

What you will need:

  • Wooden Wreath or any heavy duty wire will do
  • Lots and lots of Pine Cones
  • Super Glue
  • Ribbon
  • Leaves – Optional

Gather all the pine cones you can find, the more variety of sizes of pinecones the better for this project. Once you have plenty, go ahead and start gluing them one at a time onto your wreath. Using small dots of Super Glue makes it easy to attach all the pine cones to the wreath with zero hassle. If you are using a wire, you can glue each pine cone to each other as well in order to make it sturdier. Make sure to use the smaller pinecones to fill in the empty gaps.

For an added bonus, you can lightly spray paint the pine cones in white to give off the winter snow effect. This step is also optional, but adding a few leaves or even pine tree leaves can add a Christmas feel to your wreath.

Once you’re done adding everything to your wreath, you can add a bow to the top. Keep in mind that this pinecone wreath will be heavy; make sure to secure it properly. Use some ribbon to create a hook for your wreath. Pass the ribbon through the center of wreath and tie it on top to create a sort of triangle and then use that part to hang the wreath.

This simple craft will leave your guests feeling impressed and leave you feeling happy because it didn’t take too much time at all! Visit our Facebook page to share some of your creative ideas for fall wreaths.

Removing Super Glue from Unwanted Surfaces

Super Glue Remove from wood

[Image: http://www.wikihow.com/Main-Page]

 

Super Glue can hold together almost anything, from small refrigerator magnets to cracks in furniture. Super Glue does not discriminate and will adhere itself to any surface. What can you do when some drops of Super Glue get on your desk, floor, or even on your hands?

 
Nail polish remover with acetone can be your best friend in these sticky situations. It can break down the dried up substance from any surface. However, acetone from nail polish is a harsh chemical that can damage some surfaces. Before you begin, apply only a small amount to an inconspicuous spot and wait about 10 to 15 minutes to ensure that the acetone will not eat through your surface. If your surface can handle it, apply some acetone to a dry cloth and start by dabbing at the dried glue until the entire residue is gone. Once the stain is completely removed, use a damp cloth with clean water to get rid of the remaining acetone chemical and odor.

 
If you notice that the acetone is damaging your furniture, sanding it down will be the best alternative. However, this option can also damage your furniture and may require professional assistance. Sanding down the furniture can be tricky and the furniture may require some polish afterwards to blend in.

 
Super Glue is an amazing adhesive that can help you out with any type of project you may have, but always remember to protect your surrounding areas to avoid having to remove it. Once it dries on a surface it can be stubborn to remove. For more information on how to remove super glue refer to our Safety Page. Happy gluing!

halloween candy jars

[Image: https://www.pinterest.com/]

It’s that time of year again. Is your house prepared to host a spooky gathering? Halloween Candy Jars are a great way to decorate your home and provide sweet treats at the same time. This simple DIY can be created with only a few items without sacrificing your wallet.

To begin this project you will need candlesticks, jars, knobs, black spray paint, and super glue to hold everything together.

You can begin by spray painting your candlesticks, lids, and knobs and leaving them out to dry for about 15 minutes. Once each item is dry, super glue each piece together.

Super glue is the perfect adhesive to assist in small projects such as this one. Using a little goes a long way and dries very quickly making it easier for you to get your project done quickly. Just a small dab can glue the knob to the top of the lid and another small dab can glue the candle stick to the bottom of the jar!

Purchase your favorite Halloween candy and fill the jars. For some goriness, you can also purchase some fake blood and add a bloody handprint around the jar!

A great thing about this project is that you can reuse these jars during the holiday season and all you need to do is add a candle and you’ve created a new look. Enjoy!

How to Remove Super Glue from Your False Eyelashes

Super Glue is one of the strongest bonding products you have the ability of using whenever something is no longer to stay in its place. With Halloween approaching, that means our adhesives may be the perfect solution to keep your costumes safely together to ensure that you do not have the wardrobe malfunction of the year that even Miley Cyrus won’t try to top.

Ladies, we know that when it comes to eyelashes you love adding that little extra piece as the finishing touch to your wardrobe. However, some women do make the mistake of mixing up their super glue products with eyelash glue. While super glue is a great all-purpose sealant that is great for wood, fabrics, plastics, glass and rubber, never under any circumstance should anyone turn to Super Glue as a cosmetic tool. Although it is cheap and very effective, it can be an injury that can send you to the emergency room. No need to fear, here are a few easy steps everyone can remember if they find themselves in an unfortunate bond with super glue.

There are quite a bit of people who believe that nail polish remover is the only valid solution to remove unwanted Super Glue but contact with acetone can enter the body and be extremely painful if it splashes into your eyes. As most may not know, acetone is the main ingredient used in most nail polish removers which is a highly flammable liquid that can also burn, discolor and damage skin on contact. In fact, we suggest you attempt these four solutions to remove Super Glue from your eyelashes:

  • Dab hot water with a cloth until removed
  • Gently massage light/sensitive Baby Oil with a finger or cotton pad
  • Purchase eyelash glue remover and dab on with cotton balls
  • Visit a salon technician for professional eyelash removal

No matter how unorthodox your use of Super Glue may be this fall, we want to remind you to enjoy yourself and do not use Super Glue if it is advised against certain situations. Utilize our safe and quick methods of eyelash removal if you end up accidentally using Super Glue around your eyelids and tell us how these removal steps benefit you in our comments section.

Super Glue as Your Friendly Furniture Stabilizer

Super glue is a product nearly all households are familiar with. In fact, there is even a Wikipedia page all about Super Glue! When working on projects with wood, you may run into an issue that goes beyond the old nuts and bolts of the past.  While many common wood products are made of dense wood with sufficient oils that make the use of wood glue possible, others need a specialized glue like Leather and Wood Super Glue (made by Super Glue Corporation).

Using cyanoacrylate (CA) glue, otherwise known as “super glue,” is a staple of every wood craftsman. Not only does it form quick-drying bonds to different materials, such as metal to plastic, but it also works well on most types of wood safely without creating more damage. Any loose parts on your project present a risk to the overall structure of your wood chair, table, or other wood objects. That is why it is important to address small cracks and punctures that appear to “give out” or dismantle right away before more damage is done.

Stabilizing Rotten Wood

The first thing to remember is that various woods react differently to stabilization. Softwood absorbs large amounts of chemicals and is too sensitive to respond to treatment. An old carpenters’ trick is to fill nail holes or rotting woodwork with sawdust and super glue. To patch wood with this method, you need sawdust that matches the specific wood you are patching. Add some Super Glue to the hole and then sprinkle over the top with the sawdust.  Repeat until the space is filled.

Repairing Furniture Joints

For minor damage and destruction of wood tables, chair joints and other wood surfaces you can quickly restore the strength of your furniture. Inspect the furniture closely for screws, bolts or nails that may have fallen out or dislodged and deformed. Remove these items if they no longer serve as a supportive source. Once these items and old glue have been removed, place the furniture on a flat surface (to help prevent the glue from leaking out) and add a light coat of glue into each joint or crack. Unlike wood glue which requires clamping and a long wait period (sometimes days!), Super Glue dries nearly instantly needing only some masking tape and a little time.

Super Glues Improve Fuel Efficiency In New Cars

According to a Wall Street Journal article, September 8, 2014, Super Glues are being used to help make cars lighter in order to ultimately improve fuel economy.

Heavier metal fasteners like rivets, nuts and bolts are being replaced by super glues which can hold things together just as well, or better, while improving fuel efficiency.

“The global market for structural adhesives used in cars, airplanes and other vehicles should hit $2 billion this year, up from $1.5 billion a decade ago,” according to IHS senior consultant Erik Linak quoted in the article.

The WSJ article states that “carbon fibers and other composite materials lend themselves more to glues than screws” and lighter weight aluminum and composite fibers are what automobile manufacturers are using instead of heavier substrates like steel wherever possible in new cars.  “About 27 pounds of adhesives go into the typical car today, up from 18 pounds a decade ago,” said Daniel Murad, chief executive of ChemQuest Group Inc., a Cinncinati consulting firm.

Deciding which metal fasteners can be replaced by glues is a challenge for engineers.  Safety is still their top priority and federal standards must continue to be met.  Adhesive manufacturers, working with engineers, are always seeking new formulas which can withstand higher temperatures, be removed and/or replaced easier, and bond to a wider range of substrates.

Using adhesives (super glues, epoxies, etc.) to replace fasteners is definitely on the rise, in the automobile and airline industries as well as many other industries,  and this is excellent news for manufacturers and consumers!
