Well no blog about DIY or fixing things instead of throwing them away would be complete without the inclusion of the Instant Coffee of the DIY world – yes the Hot Glue Gun.
Imagine PVA Glue + Silicone Sealant + General Filler + Blutack + with the speed of sticking of Super Glue in an all-in-one ready to go package … that, my friends is the Hot Glue Gun.
Ours is almost on permanent standby ready to fix toys / appliances / and do odd little DIY jobs around the house. In the last week or so we’ve fixed the hose back onto our Henry Vacuum cleaner, stuck a safety cleat for the cord for a roller blind onto the wall, and rescued various toys from ending up as landfill.
In all – our Hot Glue Gun has rescued hundreds of pounds of products from being throw away or being sent for professional repair. There is quite a feeling of accomplishment when a seemingly beyond repair item just needs a couple of daps of hot glue to restore full working order.
Additionally – the Hot Glue Gun is great for arts and crafts – instantly fixing one material to another.
So we’ll follow up with some further posts for high (and low) ticket items as and when the breakages occur.
