Repair broken drawers with Super Glue quickly.

Many people have been here: you pull that desk drawer open and the drawer face comes completely off. Once the initial shock has worn off, and the scattering of papers and debris has been cleaned up, next comes the game plan. A broken wooden drawer can’t easily be replaced, especially if the desk is older. With Super Glue’s Fix-All Adhesive, that gaping hole in the desk can easily become a quick-fix.

Steps to Desk Drawer Repair

First gather the drawer face and remove the entire drawer from the desk. If drawer contents haven’t already been emptied, do this now or things could get messy. Then, move the parts to a protected work area and let the repair begin.

The tube of Fix-All Adhesive will need to be pierced before applying it, so use the outer cap to penetrate the seal. Be careful to do this while pointing away from the body and face.

Next, apply the adhesive generously to both surfaces, the edge of the broken drawer face and the drawer itself. Then press the pieces together, you can leave the drawer face down during the drying time of 10 minutes.

Lastly, let the adhesive cure for 24 hours before returning the drawer to the desk and back to its full-time position of clutter keeper.

Multi-Purpose Solvent & Sealer

Used for glueing, sealing, and repairing, Super Glue’s Fix-All Adhesive has several applications and works on many additional materials such as:

  • Brick
  • Canvas
  • Glass
  • Non-Porous Materials
  • Porous Materials
  • China
  • Concrete
  • Fabric and lots more

Repair the soles of your boots with Bondini Everything Gel

Split shoe soles have a way of tripping people up, literally. When a favorite pair of boots or footwear suffers that moment of separation, the dirt may fly and the heart may sink just a little bit. Some take their shoes to get repaired professionally, which can be expensive. Others donate or even dispose of the pair. However, Super Glue’s Bondini Everything Gel can make shoe repair simple and effective, and not so much of a “soul” splitting experience.

Abundant Bonding Applications

When it comes to bonding, Bondini Everything Gel’s name says a lot. It works on just about everything, including materials such as:

  • Leather
  • Cardboard
  • Rubber
  • Ceramic
  • Metal
  • China
  • Wood
  • Most Plastics
  • Corkboards
  • Jewelry and much more

Footsteps to Footwear Repair

First gather your boot or shoe that’s in need of fixing. There’s no prep or cleaning needed with Bondini Everything Gel because it’s able to create a strong bond through grease and it works on dirty or oily surfaces. This product is ideal for footwear repair as shoes come in contact with a lot of grime and dirt.

Next open the bottle of adhesive and apply the gel to the inside of the split sole. Firmly press the sole against the boot and in seconds it should bond. Wipe away any excess gel that may have seeped out onto the exterior edge of the sole. Wait 24 hours before wearing the repaired footwear again.

How to Fix Weather Stripping with Super Glue’s Super Weather Strip Adhesive

Weatherstripping done right with Super Glue's best adhesives.

Weatherstrips that are used and worn can come loose – it happens. The good news is that you don’t necessarily have to replace them. That’s where Super Glue’s Super Weatherstrip Adhesive, from their Pro Seal line of products, comes in handy.

This product is ideal for securing worn or damaged weatherstrips. It’s also high strength, fast drying and can bond to several different surfaces.

Tips For Weatherstripping

For starters, if you’re looking to secure your weatherstrip to your door, you want to position it high enough so it doesn’t drag any rugs. It would be ideal if you mark the placement beforehand.

Secondly, you’re going to want to make sure the surface area of your weatherstrip and your door or window are dry and wax free.

Then apply the Super Weatherstrip Adhesive to both surfaces, and allow it to dry for 3 to 5 minutes. When you’re ready to secure it, apply a thin second coat to the weatherstripping and attach it to its proper position immediately.

The once pesky, detached weather strip will now be secured and should stay in place, even on the most frequently used doors or windows.
