Absolutely LOVE this product

12/17/2013 by Marianna

I've already saved time and money using this product. I've hemmed suit pants in a jiffy for my sons. Mended a pillow and a zipper on my jacket. Also last minute school project that would have required the glue to dry overnight. Not with this product. I don't know which one I love the most - the time or the money I saved. An absolute have to have product in every home.

Fixed daughters expensive suede overcoat. She hooked the shoulder and had a nail tear. Invisible fix. Thanks


So far, so good!

Have only used it twice, but it worked as promised. I know it will be a useful tool.

I used the Tear Mender on my favorite jeans that were worn out on the seam next to the zipper. Worked great! would totally recommend.


Try it, you'll like it!

This stuff is awesome! It's like Mod Podge plus Gorilla Glue in the same bottle! Love the portable size as well, since accidents invariably happen in public. Thanks for a great product!


This really works!

I tried this for the 1st time on my daughter's purse......one of the vinyl tabs on the handle had ripped right where it was sewn. I used this Tear Mender to repair it and let it cure for 24 hours as instructed. The repair held and my daughter is using her purse again without any problem!


Works Like a Charm

I have repaired boots and jeans with it. I love the way this is a regional discovery from Chicago.


It works!

This worked well at fixing a tear. Be prepared to hold it longer than you might think. Be patient, and it will work.

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?
