This is the only fabric glue that I have ever found that will hold patches on jeans and last through several washes. I love it!


Works great!

I love this stuff. It works really well.


Wonderful product for hard to access areas

I melted a large area on an outdoor hammock pillow attempting to use an iron-on patch. I had ordered this product for just such an eventuality as we are at our summer home and the only sewing machine I have is a hundred year old White pedal sewing machine which we use as a decorative table. I may have not used the product correctly as the patch is very noticeable but it did adhere the patch very well and is on the back of the pillow so the noticeable repair is not noticeable for ordinary use. Great product for otherwise difficult repairs.

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 used this to repair an emergency jeans rip! I had the little bottle in my overnight bag and WOW I'm so happy I did!!

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!

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!


Heres a use for this I'm sure you've never heard before

So...I bought a doberman puppy who just had its ears cropped and poor dog had them bandaged and taped together at the top of his head...they put popsicle sticks INSIDE his ears and it had rubbed them raw and bleeding. So I figured there had to be a better way, less painful and annoying (poor dog was drivin nuts)...I tried sticking breathright strips to his ears, these are stiff plastic adhesives used to stop snoring, you stick them to your face...anyhow worked ok but kept falling or getting scratched off, long story short...I glued them with this product OUTSIDE the ears just at the edge where his ear tried to fall...they stuck no matter what my dog did, no more sticks or bandages just a small almost invisible breathright strip OUTSIDE his ear. They would eventually wear off (due to hair growth and body oils) and I'd just replace them. Saved my poor puppy tons of pain and grief. Ive used it to keep bandages in place on my horses, wouldn't even hesitate to glue a patch to myself in a crunch...This product is safe enough to use on skin and really works on leather and clothing. 100% recommend it to everyone. Please note that it's easily removed from skin but NOT from materials.

I know how to sew, even have a sewing machine, but this product is fantastic. It's quick and easy; especially great for an emergency .

The Tear Mender Story

Tear Mender - Liquid Fabric Adhesive

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?
