Tear Mender

5/16/2014 by Linda

My daughter got this for me and I loved it. I pulled it out recently to repair a stuffed rocking horse and it was quite runny and didn't seem to hold as well or dry as fast. I looked at the label and read that it only lasts a year, I wish it would have been more prominent on the bottle.


It does work

Works well on fabric, not so well with leather. Tried to mend some leather gloves and the patches kept coming unstuck at the edges. For fabric though, it does as advertised.


No to Tear Mender

Cut a hole in a white cap for a play. Used the Glue Mender and it discolored to a horrible yucky yellow beige. Plus it is impossible to removed. Yes it mended the tear but it does not dry white. Truly disappointed.


Wouldn't Buy It

I tried it on a dress shirt where there was a small rip. It did "repair'" the rip but created a messy looking spot on my shirt. One friend commented saying, "Looks like a bird crapped on your shirt." I guess it's ok to use if repair is not going to be seen.


Good idea but bottle clogs up and glue is not invisible

I like the idea of this because I cannot sew to save my life but the bottle got all clogged and the glue dries white and visible and very hard/rough.

I was excited to receive this order, but very disappointed. I used it to mend my flannel Pajamas. It works, but it turns all it touches into an ugly yellow stain. I am upset. These pj's are old but quality that I cared to preserve and use. So I am not happy and would not recommend this product for this reason. It did the job, but has ugly results.
Unhappy customer,

Didn't work for my needs

I needed to repair a hole in a sling seat of a patio chair. This did not nold and was yellowish-tan in color and showed up. Not good for this at all. Also found it cheaper on other sites.


Don’t waste your money or time

I was eagerly awaiting to get this & try it out. I tried it out on 2 different types of material and it wouldn’t hold together for nothing. All it wanted to do was keep rolling up into little sticky balls and leaving me with another mess.
Had no choice but return it.


Would never purchase again

Yes, it is an instant fabric adhesive, BUT...... it is very liquidy, so it does not stay in place well. It runs all over. It also does not dry clear. In addition, it comes through the layers of fabric (even a heavy quilt), so that the liquid is on the good side of your piece. Because it dries quickly, you cannot get it out and forever have a stain on your piece. I tried to salvage a quilt by turning under the ends that were frayed. It leaked on to the good side. I have no idea how, as I am extremely careful. I sadly ended up tossing the quilt. I used it to repair the upholstery on a chair and I have several sticky spots that you can see. The only place I can successfully use this product is on something that will NOT be seen. I wish that I could get a refund.

Disappointed, did not repair the item I originally purchased it for. At first it held, then it came apart like I hadn't apply the product. But I'm willing to give it another try, will see what happens. Sorry!

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?
