I’ve used this to repair pants and shirts and even after several washings it holds up perfectly!

It is amazing how fast this stuff works! It did exactly what I wanted it to do. Only advice I have is be ready to put the two sides together (Whatever you want to glue/adhere) because it works well and quickly!!!

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.


Old ways are best!

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!!


Love It

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!

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?
