Our Bondini line of adhesives is meant for recreational and sports use, pretty much for any surface that may be dirty or oily. But these products are also great for craft projects similar to the example we found below. Even though the author is doing some custom guitar work – not really an arts and crafts project – the application and removal of glue is like any other project involving wood and plastic/metal.

“When I installed the two good sensors in a different guitar, the results were problematic. The low ‘E’ string amplified a little stronger than the other five strings, and I needed an extreme bass cut to achieve an adequately balanced tone. I decided to remove the sensors again, but this time I tried a different super glue debonder. I used something called Bondini remover gel (from True Value Hardware) which comes in a tiny bottle with a brush applicator. I applied the gel around the edges of the sensor, then found it very easy to work a razor under the sensors and work the sensors free.”

This is exactly the kind of application Bondini Brush-On Remover Gel was made for. It goes on quickly and easily. This guitar hobbyist found it to be a step up over similar products and, if you’re serious about removing glued parts without damaging them, you will too.

If you have daughters, or just follow the latest fashion trends yourself, then you know that the popularity of elastic hair ties is on the rise. And while these fashion accessories may not exactly bust your budget, you can still save money and have a little fun by making them yourself. Just when you thought your teenage daughter was too old for arts and crafts, these DIY elastic hair ties present the perfect opportunity to do a little bonding while you craft your very own hair accessories.

Knoxville, Tennessee’s Local 8 news station has all the steps in their Pinspiration section. First, you can pick up some elastic ribbon online or at your local craft store. Each yard will yield about four hair ties, and buying the fabric allows you to make your ties unique. Using our Super Glue Single-Use Minis, you can keep the fabric from running. Just cut a six-inch strip of ribbon, tie the ends, and apply a dab of Super Glue. It’s that easy. Local 8 also has suggestions for storing the ties, such as using an old paper towel roll covered in decorative wrapping paper. And we think they make a great party favor idea, too.

Give this craft a try and let us know what you think. We look forward to hearing from you in our comments section.
