Yikes! I am the worst at DIY. I have been known to take quite a lot of short cuts when it comes to those small and annoying jobs that need doing. I own three hammers, a wicker basket with miscellaneous nails, screws and what nots. Let’s be honest, I really shouldn’t go anywhere near my DIY stash and just wait for the handyman. I can hang pictures, decorate superbly well. I’m all about the feng shui (… I’m not. I place furniture at angles and misuse space but it’s my space and I love it). I’m pretty nifty with a paint brush and a wad of sand paper. The fun stuff, if you ask me. So needless to say, when something goes awry, it’s usually left on the long finger until we have enough jobs worthy of our handymans time! Since we moved into our country bungalow last year there are plenty of little itty bitty jobs that annoy me. They need to be fixed but are too small to get someone in and too annoying for us. The list keeps getting longer. This weekend I managed to tick a few things off the list with Sugru. What’s Sugru you ask. Well, oh me, oh my, it’s a mouldable glue that even I can’t mess up! Read on for our review and a giveaway…
Sugru kindly shipped a pack of eight multicoloured, mouldable glue packets to me last week and I’ve been itching to open them all and stick sugru everywhere!
At a cost of €15.99 plus shipping for a pack of eight 5g sachets, I refrained from peeling open the packs and sticking Sugru everywhere. I consulted my to do list first. Sugru isn’t cheap but it works well and it’s pretty handy to have a pack or two in the house.
Sugru has a shelf life of 6 months but leave unopened packs in the fridge and they last for 18 months. It’s a soft, almost play dough like material that turns into rubber after hardening (24 hours to harden).
I found my way to Sugru’s website and I have to say they are pretty nifty with their ideas about how you can use this mouldable glue. Turns out you can get pretty creative with hooks on radiators, DIY iPad wall racks and organise your shoes!
In all, Sugru is quite a clever and handy product to have around the house for those miscellaneous tasks or hacks that pop into your head. It has a particularly impressive bond, which sticks to almost anything, and is resistant to heat, waterproof and electrically insulating. Colours can be combined to make your own rainbow. If you’re like me and itching to stick sugru everywhere, check out their website for lots of useful tips and tricks.
I quite like their Back to School ideas. Personalise everything so that by year end you’re kid may just have all their belongings still!
And of course Sugru is invaluable to toys! I made replica ears for Daddy Pig who was injured in a fight with Spiderman. Because Sugru is pliable and strong, it makes a great substitute for any broken toys and games. Let’s not forget how well Sugru and Lego work together. And it’s great for helping you distinguish keys!
