Krazy Glue
« on: April 20, 2014, 12:04:54 PM »
Ever wondering why glues like Krazy Glue only seem to come in small containers? It could have to do with the nature of itís short shelf life.

To increase the shelf life of Krazy Glue once opened you can store it in an airtight container with a package of silica gel desiccant.

Krazy glue is great for repairing many things.

Did you know that you can use baking soda and Krazy Glue together to aid you in repairs where the glue alone just donít work.

For example if you have some plastic you would like to glue back together but the gap between the two pieces of plastic is just to wide. You can fill that gap in the plastic with some baking soda and then drop the Krazy Glue into the baking soda.

This also works great on porous materials that the glue normally does not work well with alone.

Be aware that the reaction between Krazy Glue and baking soda produces some noxious vapors.

What are something you have used Krazy Glue for?

When I get screws for plastic that are stripped out, I use a drop of krazy to fill the screw hole. Tightens up good & if I ever need to back screw out again it will release with out to much problem.   I will try the baking soda trick.

I use it to glue cuts back together. Stings like a SOB, but saves you from having to change bandages twenty times during the day.

Well we all know the 2 basic rules of repair now, don't we?


1) If it should move and doesn't, use WD40.

2) If it does move and it shouldn't, use duct tape.... :rofl:
