I am constantly hemming pants (and I am not good at it). I hemmed 2 pairs of pants flawlessly in 5 minutes. Can't wait to find other uses.

I love this. I have used it to repair a lacey bra where the lace tore. Used it to repair cat claw holes in my clothes. Used it to fix my bed skirt. It worked great on all the above. I will always have a bottle of this around!More > < Less

I must admit that I purchased Tear Mender on a whim. I was not looking for something similar. I just happened to see the article and was intriqued by the promises made. We have jeans, tarps, snowmobile covers, patio cushions, etc. that have needed your product. The best part - IT WORKS!! It REALLY works!! We even used it recently on a seam in grandson's little sleeper. Thank you so much!More > < Less

Tear Mender - Liquid Fabric Adhesive

About Tear Mender

Quick Fix for Rips

One bright side of dire environmental predictions is that we’re all a little less wasteful and more apt to fix, rather than replace, damaged goods.

During the 1930s, Val “the Bish” Cismoski came up with a way to quickly repair canvas belts on steam-powered machinery, so farmers wouldn’t have to lose precious harvesting time to replace a torn belt. Fast-forward 75 years, and we’re putting the same formula to use mending ripped clothes, torn seat cushions and frayed shoelaces.

Tear Mender is a natural and non-toxic liquid adhesive that bonds fabric upon contact. You can apply it like glue on a tear, or spread it on a fabric patch, and it bonds in minutes. Repaired fabrics stay flexible and soft even after washing, says Jerry Cismoski, (on the left) who is the Bish’s son and runs the third-generation company.

So if you’ve got a dropped hem, a broken belt loop, or a run in the carpet, give Tear Mender a try. It also works great on tears in the seat of your car, damaged sports gear, or rips in a tent (it’s waterproof and UV-resistant). Why throw out something that you can easily repair with Tear Mender?
