While I have not had the opportunity to actually use this product yet, the potential is huge! Look forward to trying it out soon.....


I'm glad I added this product to my group of adhesives, I think it will be very handy to have.

I haven't made an actual repair yet, but I have tried it on a couple of test pieces, and it is very strong.

I need to get a little more practice in using just the right amount to prevent soak through on the cloth though. It looks like a glue patch on the outside if you let it soak through the material.

The instructions say to use a toothpick to apply a very small amount, while I just dabbed the glue with the nozzle, which was obviously not the way to go. With that said, I believe this is a very worthwhile product, that I am looking forward to trying again.

I thought I would give this product a whirl! Very pleased! Does exactly what is claimed!

I was curious about this products effectiveness, saying it could bond leather and ANY kind of fabric. I have an ancient leather recliner that is starting to rip on the armchairs. My 9 month old is always trying to pull the stuffings out and it drives me crazy. Long story short, I bought it and it worked completely!! I am so relieved that I don't have to save to buy a new chair. Since then I have fixed all my broken belts & purses, my sons backpack and jacket, My daughters swing (fabric was fraying) and many blankets that were hand made and handed down to me. I am glad I didn't get rid of them because now i can hand them down to my children. Thanks, you guys, for a wonderful product.

I like this product but you have to be careful as the khaki color can ooze through and make the mend obvious.


Never worked as expected

I tried mending a small tear is a seam on my chest high waders. It just didn’t bond well and not very water resistant... OTOH I did manage to glue a strap on a pair of sandals...


Just ok

This will work to keep your denim from ripping, BUT after this stuff ages a bit it turns grey and I think it looks terrible. Now i just use a tiny iron on patch on the inside part of each rip.


Kinda messy, but it works

The Tear Mender is a really great idea. I've used it on few different types of fabric and it's held! But it's left a residue, even when used on denim. That said, I still like and use the product.


Tear mender for inseam repair

9/10/2014 by Annie

I got tear mender as a possible way to fix the inseams on my pants. I am overweight and the inseams of my pants rub thin. 99% of the pants I wear are black and tear mender dried a light beige color. I colored it with a black permanent marker and the marker has kept the repairs dark through several washings. Although the tear mender secured the seams quite nicely, when worn, the latex seams grabbed each other as I walked. The product did recommend a patch, however I was trying to bring two sides of a seam together and thought a patch would be overkill. I am going to experiment with using a patch to cover the tear mender and hopefully reduce the “grabbing” as I walk.

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?
