    It is okay for a really little spot, but not for larger tears. My cat made a couple tears in my top sheet. The really small hole it worked good but the 1" did not.

    Great Product |
    Verified Purchase

    While channel surfing I found this item on a TV shopping network. Went right to Amazon, found a smaller size (so I could try it) and received it promptly. I had a "knock around" pocket T that had a hole in the pocket and repaired it easily and quickly. Later, the grandkids pulled a "string" from our lenai/porch carpeting and that was repaired quickly as well. Neither of the two repairs are noticeable.......great product, just wish I knew it existed long before this.

    Works great! |
    Verified Purchase

    I've patched two pairs of jeans with this and they are both holding up great! One was the knee of a pair of work jeans that get knelt in and dirty often, and the patch is flexible, durable and holds up well with washing. The other patch I made was on a pair of thin fabric jeans that ripped along the seam about halfway between ankle and knee. The patch isn't noticeable and has held up with washing as well.

    The leather fix all |
    FloridaVerified Purchase

    This adhesive is great! I tried it on all sorts of fabrics and it holds superbly. My son's cotton shirt had a small hole so we tried it on that now it's fixed, and still holding even after 2 washes. Our leather sectional had a small tear in the back of it and now it's completely sealed. I don't think there's a material out there that this won't bond. Great product. Wish I would've heard of it sooner.

    Used as ear glue for dogs |
    TX, USAVerified Purchase

    I bought this to use on a GSD pup with a floppy ear. I found it really too runny for this purpose and prefer the brush on glue for dogs. It does work well for repairing leather. I have a leather chair that had a rip and it bonded well. I would still prefer to use a brush on glue over the liquid form.

    Very nice and easy, the dog had no ear issues. |
    Verified Purchase

    Took a few glue applications to glue 2 breath right strips to the dogs ear. After the 3rd try worked out nicely. The glue is more of rubber glue consistency than anything else. I was worried it was more of super glue type. Have not removed yet, but one of the strips on day 3 started coming loose, seemed easy to remove at that point if I wanted to, I just applied a little more glue at that spot to keep it on.

    Works wonderful on Small Tears in Leather Furniture |
    ChicagoVerified Purchase

    We have a pottery barn leather sofa that developed a small tear about the size of a nickel. I wasn't about to spend $150 on a professional to come and fix it so I looked into alternatives. At first I wasn't happy because it seemed to be very visible but after a few weeks the bright white glue faded and became much less visible. However I would recommend using the tear mender kit that comes with the leather coloring to properly cover up a tear in leather. It's only a few bucks more and you get this product as well as a patch kit and colors to help disguise the tear. Overall its a very easy to use product that isn't too expensive for fixing up minor tears. I would recommend also using a small fine tip brush to apply this product to ensure precise application because it can come out of the applicator quite quickly and you don't need to use too much

    This worked on one of my items |
    ChicagoVerified Purchase

    I was shaving pills off a bright red turtleneck with a ladies razor and tore a small hole into the turtleneck. Since I like the color so much because it leans toward orange and my other red one leans towards cherry I did not wan't to discard it. I used this on it from the inside of it and you can't even tell it had a hole in it. Thankfully after all the time I spent trying to get the pills off. I originally got it for another project I had a wool blaze with a large L shaped hole in the elbow. Since I could not reach it from the inside because it was lined it could not really fix that one.

    this product far exceeds my expectations . Over a year ago I used it to form the bite on a belt buckle , I folder over approximate. 1 1/2 inch and applied a liberal coat of tear mender and to this date it has shown no sign of releasing. I have also used it to patch the bed of my Bernese Mtn.Dog who likes to dig at his bed before laying down.And if it stands up to his vary large paws it will stand up to anything

    Such a FANTASTIC PRODUCT!! I can't believe I've not used it before!! |
    Medford, ORVerified Purchase

    I can't believe I've never heard of this stuff before! It's TOTALLY AWESOME! I can't tell you HOW MANY items I've used this on! Shirts and Pants and skirts and all sorts of stuff! AND, it's excellent for more than just mending clothes! We have used it when making Sock Puppets. The felt eyes and other fabric pieces that we add to the puppets are VERY EASILY glued down with this tear mender. Additionally, my daughter's doll clothes are easily mended and augmented with this! Add a silk flower to a scrunchy? EASY! Add some felt pieces to my daughter's doll clothes? SUPER EASY! Cut out a bunch of felt pieces and glue them all to one large white piece, and make a large picture that you can hang in your child's room? very easy, very quick, super fun! I can't believe I've not found this stuff earlier! I was using hot glue guns all the time, (and for somethings, yes, I still have to) but now I can use this and not have to worry about waiting for the hot glue gun to heat up, or burning myself, yet again, on the glue! THANK YOU FOR THIS PRODUCT!! I'm super happy with it!!

    Works well but dries WHITE, not clear. :-( |
    New York, NYVerified Purchase

    I purchased this product to repair a black nylon coat that was ripped by a "stuck" zipper. While the product worked well in mending the tear, the glue dried WHITE. Nowhere in the description did it say that the final color would be white - I assumed it would dry clear. I am disappointed by the fact the description didn't mention this important attribute about this product.

    Strong, dependable and easy. |
    HesperiaVerified Purchase

    This is incredible stuff. This is my 3rd bottle of it. I let a friend try it and now he has his own bottle, too. It's easy to use, strong and durable. But, just like all fabric glues, you must be careful not to use to much. If it soaks through to the outer part of your project, it will dry darker than the original color of the fabric, and it dries a bit harder. It's thick enough though, that unless you're glueing a thin or sheer fabric, that this shouldn't happen. It's easy to use the right amount.

    Couldn't believe it fixed my shoe! |
    Draper, UTVerified Purchase

    I was skeptical, especially when I saw how thin the adhesive was. I had a leather shoe that had a tear along the side seam, just in front of the tongue, where your foot bends. This bending would open the tear up wide, and cause it to keep spreading. When I got the glue, the tear was almost 2 inches long. I was trying to adhere the ends of two pieces of leather together, with no overlap, so I didn't have high expectations. Luckily, there was a little backing fabric that I could use to tighten the bond. I stuck a fair amount of tear mender in there, wiped off the excess, and used a clamp to hold it all together. After about an hour, I could tell it was going to start sticking together. After 3 hours, I put the shoe on, and started walking around. It held together! I've been wearing them for about a week now, with no signs of separation. I'm VERY pleased, especially given the cost of the product. It is very inexpensive.

    Better for fabric |
    Southern CaliforniaVerified Purchase

    Not good on leather at all, but it works on fabric. I used it on my car's headliner where the fabric had come off from the edge. Working upside down was not easy. I had to drop a little on my finger then dab it on the surface. The glue on a brush just dried too quickly, so a finger was the better way. Be aware it DOES NOT dry clear. It's white and it dries white. If you're cool with that and understand this product's limitations, use it. It is not very toxic, even smells kind of nice. If it dried clear I would have given it another star, and if it had worked well on leather, I would have given it 5 stars. It's a nice rubbery glue for fabric. Just don't spill it on your cloths. It will penetrate the fabric fibers, dry, and it will never ever go away.

    Truly works |

    I use this to repair small tears in fabrics of all kinds. Even on the edge of my sofa. I cannot believe it actually works. Some items have been washed over 10 times in hot water and it is still Ho Ding. One piece of advice: do not use this on white fabric. It dries to a tinted yellow color. I have used it on pastels and the glue is not visible. For me, it is easiest to use on small areas. I tried to glue a long (3") on a t-shirt and had so e difficulty getting it straight. That is likely due to my impatience. I highly recommend this product for use on all fabrics. It is amazing.

    Verified Purchase

    So I don't know why I never thought to use this stuff for my crafting in the past, but this stuff is a miracle! Up until now I had been using crazy glue to finish off knots on bracelets and sewing, but that would often leave hard or sharp edges that I would have to file down. This stuff, on the other hand, leaves the fabric flexible and the knots securely tied. I am so happy with this product. It took a little longer to dry than the label said, but the end product made it worth it!

    Verified Purchase

    I have had this bottle for almost a year and I have used it. I have been careful to make sure it is fully closed when i am finished doing a project and I wipe away any outside excess. No problems with the bottle or glue drying up or not working. My husband is a welder who refuses to use leathers, so his jeans come home with holes...lots of holes ... I just an old pair of jeans, place them over the holes to make sure it fits then use the Tear Mender around the hole and around the edge of the homemade patch. In a years time, only one patch has come off from washing and wearing. I just re-glued and replaced it. This size has been perfect for us. I despise sewing patches and this has been the best alternative, thus far.

    I'm using this glue to repair horse blankets. It does the job and plugged a puncture in the waterproof outer material of my blanket and has been a useful product. This product isn't invisible - it definitely looks like glue on the blanket - but has held up to washing and is waterproof. Works well for small holes or for sealing on patches, stopping fraying, etc. Not so good for tears that don't meet up, but it's glue, not a patch. All in all, useful stuff!

    Not what I was hoping for... |
    Georgia, USAVerified Purchase

    I was hoping for a liquid adhesive that turns into a firm fabric like material itself so I could apply it by itself to some minor cracks and they would be sealed, or at least not get any larger. But apparently this only works as adhesive between multiple layers. I am sure it will work as such, just not what I was hoping for.

    After reading the reviews for this product I almost did not order it. I used this to repair a sofa. It is suede and leather. The leather at the top of the sofa had seperated from the suede and could not be sewn back together. I had to do three applications to get it completely fixed, but it worked and so far it is holding. The multiple applications were due to the depth and length of the rip.

    This stuff made my pants work again. I soaked the weave a little much. Maybe the sticky shell residue helped keep the fibers together, or has given protection. This is a good product. It is worth a try anywhere. It hardens, so don't expect it to keep in storage for long. If you're using it, the bottle is worth once per use. It fixed a cloth material couch and some jeans.

    For Denim Jeans: Great! |
    Verified Purchase

    I have only used Tear Mender for patching and repairing my Levis jeans, and for that it works totally fine. I've re-attached belt loops, and attached denim patches behind split knees. They seem to be holding very well in both cases. It is fairly flexible too -- I can feel the knee patch enough to remember it's there, but not enough to be distracting when bending down. Of course, on a silk shirt or something, it'd be very distracting -- but for work jeans, it's no problem. Excess glue that is not covered by fabric will dry and create a sort of white, mildly-gummy area which feels like thin rubber. It's not sticky or tacky at all, just a bit soft and gummy like an eraser. I don't mind this at all, as I'm more concerned with the strength of the bond, which this product does very well and very quickly on denim jeans.

    Best way to repair wholes in jeans |
    Verified Purchase

    Ive been wearing the jeans Ive repaired for well over a month now, and the adhesive is still doing it's job! I'm tempted now to go through my wardrobe and fix every tear I see. The only reason I took off a star is for the clean up. Whatever fabric you are applying this too make sure to have a backing, or the glue will stick to things unwanted. The glue leaks through to jean pretty easily, so I spent a while scraping the dried glue off the front of my jeans after the job was done. It was a hassle, but I am still confident there is no better product out now for the job.

    Very Good -- glad I got it! |
    Verified Purchase

    Worked to close the tear in my "new" little used car. My tear was on the door, don't think it would hold up on a seat where you applied pressure on it by sitting. Works best if you have some type of fabric backing for the glue to "grab". Works great on frayed end of jeans or any other tears on fabric. Best on denim. Be careful on fabric because if you use too much it will leave a darkened or slightly yellowed spot. Not a problem with jeans or in the seam of a garment -- if you're careful. Really good product -- expect to be able to find lots of uses for it! But, loved it on my vinyl car door small v-shaped tear -- will keep it from spreading! Just 4 stars because I haven't used it but just a couple of times.

    My husband is very hard on his work clothes, when they get to the point where they are not quite ready to get rid of this works great for the patches and holds in place better than I expected it would.

I don't use it not to sew but as explained above that is when it works well.!

    Leather Adhesive Works Like A Charm |
    Washington, DCVerified Purchase

    I wish I knew about this before I started trying to repair the leather tears in my favorite living room sofa. My two dogs were wrestling and I don't know how or why but the bit into the leather at the leather in the rear, bottom section of the sofa. I tried to use super glue to mend the rips but to no avail and decided to check Amazon. Purchased this adhesive and you can barely tell there was ever any damage to the leather at all. It bound the seams together perfectly but you have to make sure you allow for plenty of dry time before touching the affected areas.

    saves my working clothes... |
    Albany, NYVerified Purchase

    In this day and age, we don't have the luxury of tossing clothes out when they need a little mending. Tear lender works like a charm. This is a latex liquid fabric adhesive. I generally repair jeans by making a patch out of old jeans and putting the patch inside the pants. The patch will last longer than the pants. Working construction means my jeans get beat up. This stuff works. I am on my third bottle. A bottle has shelf life of about 3 year if taken care of. It glues leather up like charm. I have repaired boots, belts and bracelets. It doe not work on nylon.

    pfttttt disappointment |
    Verified Purchase

    I expected better from the tear mender. The glue is not permanent nor strong. I thought the glue would be clear drying but it leaves a yellowish brown rubbery mark on clothes and other fabrics I have glued. The glue is peel-able and does not have a strong hold. It doesn't stick on the skin and convenient for fast repairs. Still I would not recommend if you are gluing something white (the glue would look like a stain). It would be better if you just went to get it fixed rather than use the glue if quality matters more than quantity for you.

    Got it for my German Shepherd's puppy ears and ended up using it all over the house! |
    Verified Purchase

    My GSD ticked off mom and got bit on the ear damaging his vein that helps the ear develop and stand up naturally. I applied this to the top 2/3 portion of the ear on the outside edge, on the fur, inside section of the ear. It created a Tee Pee stint that was left on for one month and allowed the vessel to heal and the ear to build up cartilage. It fell off in the water one month later, leaving the fur behind. This material is like the goo you get on a new credit card and business letter. It comes out like watered down elmer's kid's glue so applying it with the bottle is tricky. After our success with the puppy, I have been restoring old worn out shoes and materials that have ripped. This is not a permanent solution to your tears but it will hold it together for a good time. I can see this being used to hold materials together before sewing. It would hold it for you and leave a nice waterproof seam. Good stuff. I will find many uses for it.

    worked for my car seat repair |
    Pacific NorthwestVerified Purchase

    I bought this specifically to repair a tear in my fabric car seat. The top layer of tough seat fabric was split with a small tear from wear and separating from a layer underneath. It worked great, just a small dab and some weight on the tear overnight and it seems to be holding (several weeks now). There is a small hard spot where it dried but it's better than the tear. I haven't tried it on anything but the car seat but it was easy to clean up the excess and it doesn't reek of toxic chemicals

    This product works a advertised, it mended a 6 inch long tear in my leather car seat. It dries in under 60 minutes. The only knock I will give it is that it will run so just be careful when applying it. Easy to remove excess glue. It just rubs off.

    Not what I expected |
    Verified Purchase

    I expected this to be thick like glue, boy was I wrong. The first time I used it it came out fine, for the second use, which was like five minutes after the first use, the cap seemed clogged, so more came out than I expected since I was squeezing hard. It is a good product and good thing it comes off of skin with just rubbing, but if you get it on the fabric in a spot you are not trying to repair, you better watch out because it does not come off. I like it but it clogs or whatever too quickly.

    Rolled off.... Not strong enough for my job. |
    Verified Purchase

    I had torn along the edge of my leather seat in my car. It was just worn out, but it was just a slit so I figured I could just glue it together with this. It looked good after I first did it, but after a day or so, it just peeled up and rolled off. Maybe this wasn't exactly what it was made for, and I am going to try it on patches and stuff like that to see if it works for that, but as far as holding to edges of leather together, it didn't do the job. Super glue would work better, but would be crunchy I am sure.

    Less than 1 star, but that is the lowest I could give it. |

    The adhesive may be good, but it's impossible to apply and there are no instructions on either the packing or on the bottle other than "apply." Do you cut open the end of the applicator or stab open? I tried the approach of stabbing with a pin, but the plastic was too strong, so the pin went into my finger really deep. I found an instructional video on line that says to use a toothpick or a small brush to apply from the bottle. But the level of adhesive (even in a brand new bottle) is so low, that you can barely reach it with either of those tools. The packing also does not have a resealable cap. (Compare, Elmer's glue which since the beginning of time has a small cap you can place over the tip once the tip has been opened.) So once you open the cap on the fabric and leather adhesive, the product will dry out. This bottle is for one time use only. I am a chemical engineer. I am sitting here looking at a thoroughly wrapped, but still bleeding finger. There is adhesive on my carpet. No repairs have been successfully made. The product has been deposited in the garbage can, and I intend to complain to the retailer I bought it from. The product delivery system has not been improved since the 1930's when the product was apparently formulated. We now know why the "Bish" never got to be a pope of any kind.

I used it to cover some holes in a favorite t-shirt. The glue is messy, has a tendency to stain and has a sort of plasticky feel after it dries. The hold doesn't feel very strong either, although it did make it through one washing. I also tried using it to repair a bra that the wire was poking out. Even though the company recommended tear mender for this purpose, the glue did not hold, although it did leave an ugly brownish yellow stain. It does not live up to the hype.

    Verified Purchase

    Wow, what a mistake this was. I read the reviews and thought I understood the pitfalls. I tried to be careful, but that glue just comes flying out of the bottle. Then it dries so fast you can't even wipe it off in the excess places. Even where I succeeded in only squirting a tiny amount of glue, as the reviewers advised, it was still too much. The glue seeps through the cloth and dries rapidly, leaving a white glue spot. I tried to mend a skirt hem this way, and probably ruined the skirt. If you have things you can glue that are thicker, maybe you won't have this problem, but on a normal skirt fabric, ugh. I was trying to get something half the price of Mighty Mendit, but I will go back to using Mighty Mendit--which dries clear!

    Dishonest claims |
    Verified Purchase

    This seems to be a latex adhesive, somewhat similar to 'Copydex' which can be purchased in the U.K. but can't be found in the U.S. It is as if the company which produces 'Tearmender' imports Copydex, waters it down and sells it at twice the price. I used it to repair tears in a thin cotton shirt. When I shook the bottle to mix the glue, with the top firmly screwed down (both parts), glue sprayed out. It takes much longer than five minutes to dry: that wouldn't matter if it didn't claim to be speedy, and I had to go over the finished job to glue down material which had not adhered. I am a craftsman, so I followed the directions, which don't work. It can be used, but it is time-consuming, expensive and comes in a poorly designed container. Not recommended.

    The liquid is very runny and dries fast so you have to have every thing laid out. It dried in a gray color so be careful of over runs and have dye ready to cover any seams.

    Quite Tacky |
    Verified Purchase

    I use this Tear Mender, along with some benzoin compound tincture for skin protectant, for setting my Irish Terriers ears. (Don't worry it doesn't hurt the dog.) The bottle is bigger than I expected, and since the gluing only occurs every couple weeks or so, it should last the duration of the ear setting process. The liquid is quite tacky and will set within 30 seconds or so, which is good when working with squirmy little dogs. Any left-over liquid on the item, or bottle rolls up easily in a tacky little ball that can be thrown away. It is a little more difficult to clean up extra glue in dog hair, so I may invest in some Detachol adhesive remover. Cherrybrook Pet Supply also included some generic instructions for setting ears with the bottle, but I opted for instructions on the web that were specific to Irish Terriers. There is also a good video on YouTube for setting Irish Terrier ears in which the person uses Tear Mender. The bottle has a spout that turns open and closed and it is easy to regulate the amount of glue which is squeezed out. The item shipped quickly from Cherrybrook Pet Supply via Amazon, came with some instructions, and was priced right.

    Less than 1 star, but that is the lowest I could give it. |
    0

    The adhesive may be good, but it's impossible to apply and there are no instructions on either the packing or on the bottle other than "apply." Do you cut open the end of the applicator or stab open? I tried the approach of stabbing with a pin, but the plastic was too strong, so the pin went into my finger really deep. I found an instructional video on line that says to use a toothpick or a small brush to apply from the bottle. But the level of adhesive (even in a brand new bottle) is so low, that you can barely reach it with either of those tools. The packing also does not have a resealable cap. (Compare, Elmer's glue which since the beginning of time has a small cap you can place over the tip once the tip has been opened.) So once you open the cap on the fabric and leather adhesive, the product will dry out. This bottle is for one time use only. I am a chemical engineer. I am sitting here looking at a thoroughly wrapped, but still bleeding finger. There is adhesive on my carpet. No repairs have been successfully made. The product has been deposited in the garbage can, and I intend to complain to the retailer I bought it from. The product delivery system has not been improved since the 1930's when the product was apparently formulated. We now know why the "Bish" never got to be a pope of any kind.

    Depending on the weave of your fabric, its performance is less than wonderful. Look elsewhere for fabric mending.

Perhaps it's better on leather, but on fabric it leaves so much to be desired.

    Works great to repair jeans. Turn the pants leg inside out, put wax paper on hidden side of hole to keep glue from going through the hole, cut a patch from other sacrificial jeans, apply glue to patch, slap it on and press for a few seconds with fingers to smooth it out and you are done.

    As a breeder of Italian Greyhounds, I purchase Tear Mender to train my puppy's ears to hold the "rose" shape when they are having issues while teething. Many dog breeders recommend it.

    The leather fix all |
    Verified Purchase

    This adhesive is great! I tried it on all sorts of fabrics and it holds superbly. My son's cotton shirt had a small hole so we tried it on that now it's fixed, and still holding even after 2 washes. Our leather sectional had a small tear in the back of it and now it's completely sealed. I don't think there's a material out there that this won't bond. Great product. Wish I would've heard of it sooner.

    Very nice and easy, the dog had no ear issues. |
    Verified Purchase

    Took a few glue applications to glue 2 breath right strips to the dogs ear. After the 3rd try worked out nicely. The glue is more of rubber glue consistency than anything else. I was worried it was more of super glue type. Have not removed yet, but one of the strips on day 3 started coming loose, seemed easy to remove at that point if I wanted to, I just applied a little more glue at that spot to keep it on.

    An effective product |
    Verified Purchase

    I recommend this product. It indeed works. I used it and it is quite effective. There is one thing I will say.. Be careful how you put it on the tear or what you are mending. When it dries, you might not like how it appears. Use careful judgment before you use the product. I would use it for tears or any mending. It is quite strong. I used it on a sofa/couch. I was really shocked at how well it worked.

    I've patched two pairs of jeans with this and they are both holding up great! One was the knee of a pair of work jeans that get knelt in and dirty often, and the patch is flexible, durable and holds up well with washing. The other patch I made was on a pair of thin fabric jeans that ripped along the seam about halfway between ankle and knee. The patch isn't noticeable and has held up with washing as well.

    Verified Purchase

    This product was recommended for making roman shades. I used it on wooden dowels and fabric. I had to use quite a bit for it to stick and the instructions say that it dries in 15 minutes but, even with just a drop, it took a few hours to dry. It also said it was machine washable in an hour but, obviously, that wouldn't work either. I made sure I shook up the bottle very good too but, that didn't seem to make a difference

    This stuff made my pants work again. I soaked the weave a little much. Maybe the sticky shell residue helped keep the fibers together, or has given protection. This is a good product. It is worth a try anywhere. It hardens, so don't expect it to keep in storage for long. If you're using it, the bottle is worth once per use. It fixed a cloth material couch and some jeans. Well worth the money, and has lasted quite nicely.

    easy to use, and it's nice being able to mix up the colors to match and paint over your existing fabric. Fixed a 1" tear in my leather theater seat that woudl have spread if I didn't fix it right away. Just have some clamps ready, the adhesive is a bit thin so apply plenty of it and wipe off the excess top and bottom, and clamp it down for at least 30 minutes. Then mix up the colors until you have a match and paint it up!

    Big Mistake! |
    Verified Purchase

    Please don't waste your money! As a sewer and crafter, I have never seen such an awful product for fabric. It is so thin that it soaks through the fabric, even layers, and after several hours, dries to a sticky yellow mess that can not be removed yet somehow does not bond fabric together. Of course my fabric was ruined. This does not dry in three minutes yet can not be washed out either. There is nothing instant about it except the big mess it makes. Stick to Elieens.

    My husband is very hard on his work clothes, when they get to the point where they are not quite ready to get rid of this works great for the patches and holds in place better than I expected it would. I found when the material gets thin, sewing patches seemed to create a new weak spot and they would tear near the stitching of the patch. A friend recommended this and I highly recommend too. I don't use it not to sew but as explained above that is when it works well.!

    I used this to repair a tricky spot on a red leather purse and it worked well. It dries really fast which is great because I had to hold the piece in place. It does dry to be a tan color but I expected this. The glue is easy to clean up and washes right off your hands. When my purse was dried there was a little glue around the seem but I was able to remove this and now the repair is barely noticeable. It's not perfect but it saved my favorite purse so it was well worth it!

    I purchased this product to repair a black nylon coat that was ripped by a "stuck" zipper. While the product worked well in mending the tear, the glue dried WHITE.

I had a "knock around" pocket T that had a hole in the pocket and repaired it easily and quickly.

Neither of the two repairs are noticeable.......great product, just wish I knew it existed long before this.

    Great product for mending. I have been looking for a product that I can use quickly and this is it. It would be great to keep at work for those hems that come loose at the wrong time. I also use this for my crochet blankets when I start a new skein. I like to put a drop of Tender Mender to reinforce the yarn so it does not come apart. The product is a little runny so it is best to dab it with you finger to keep from using too much. Love this product and would recommend it. It is great for crafts too.

    Strong, dependable and easy. |
    Verified Purchase

    This is incredible stuff. This is my 3rd bottle of it. I let a friend try it and now he has his own bottle, too. It's easy to use, strong and durable. But, just like all fabric glues, you must be careful not to use to much. If it soaks through to the outer part of your project, it will dry darker than the original color of the fabric, and it dries a bit harder. It's thick enough though, that unless you're glueing a thin or sheer fabric, that this shouldn't happen. It's easy to use the right amount.

    Not what I expected |
    Verified Purchase

    I expected this to be thick like glue, boy was I wrong. The first time I used it it came out fine, for the second use, which was like five minutes after the first use, the cap seemed clogged, so more came out than I expected since I was squeezing hard. It is a good product and good thing it comes off of skin with just rubbing, but if you get it on the fabric in a spot you are not trying to repair, you better watch out because it does not come off. I like it but it clogs or whatever too quickly.

    Rolled off.... Not strong enough for my job. |
    Verified Purchase

    I had torn along the edge of my leather seat in my car. It was just worn out, but it was just a slit so I figured I could just glue it together with this. It looked good after I first did it, but after a day or so, it just peeled up and rolled off. Maybe this wasn't exactly what it was made for, and I am going to try it on patches and stuff like that to see if it works for that, but as far as holding to edges of leather together, it didn't do the job. Super glue would work better, but would be crunchy I am sure.

    I am huge into arts and crafts and have to glue multiple surfaces together. Such cloth to wood, cloth to cloth, and ribbons to feathers. This product even glued my 100% cotton paper to wood and leather perfectly. With that said, yes it is a liquid. For gluing sensitive things maybe try a brush to apply as the lid comes off. And as far as fabrics use sparingly and follow the directions and you should have no problem. I don't get the negative reviews. This has successfully glued and mended everything it has touched.

    I bought this specifically to repair a tear in my fabric car seat. The top layer of tough seat fabric was split with a small tear from wear and separating from a layer underneath. It worked great, just a small dab and some weight on the tear overnight and it seems to be holding (several weeks now). There is a small hard spot where it dried but it's better than the tear. I haven't tried it on anything but the car seat but it was easy to clean up the excess and it doesn't reek of toxic chemicals

    I really wanted this product to work. I need it. However, so far I've had modest success with it. Following the directions, I used it to attach a strip of matching vinyl taken from one of my car's headrests to cover an area of cracked leather on my car driver's seat. The adhesive held the bottom half of the strip, but the top half wouldn't stay in place. I reapplied it a few days later, but it didn't help. I have a couple of other applications to try it on, but at this point I'm not particularly happy with the results.

    Worked great on my black leather jacket which had a canine scratch/tear. This is basically very runny rubber cement. APPLY WITH A QTIP! The glue will get everywhere if u let it, not sure even the dropper it comes with will contain it. Glue is white when applied but dries a shiny clear. The only way u can see it is from the extra sheen. If u screw up, let it dry then peal off like rubber cement and start over. Not sure how long it will last, looks like I will have to reapply every year or so. Definitely works as advertised.

    Verified Purchase

    I expected better from the tear mender. The glue is not permanent nor strong. I thought the glue would be clear drying but it leaves a yellowish brown rubbery mark on clothes and other fabrics I have glued. The glue is peel-able and does not have a strong hold. It doesn't stick on the skin and convenient for fast repairs. Still I would not recommend if you are gluing something white (the glue would look like a stain). It would be better if you just went to get it fixed rather than use the glue if quality matters more than quantity for you.

    Best way to repair wholes in jeans |
    Verified Purchase

    Ive been wearing the jeans Ive repaired for well over a month now, and the adhesive is still doing it's job! I'm tempted now to go through my wardrobe and fix every tear I see. The only reason I took off a star is for the clean up. Whatever fabric you are applying this too make sure to have a backing, or the glue will stick to things unwanted. The glue leaks through to jean pretty easily, so I spent a while scraping the dried glue off the front of my jeans after the job was done. It was a hassle, but I am still confident there is no better product out now for the job.

    I used this to mend my son's leather jacket. He had caught the sleeve on a nail and had a long slit in it. The Tear Mender Glue worked excellently, binding a piece of material to the inside of the sleeve and forming a nearly invisible seam on the outside. Because the sleeve was lined, I had to work the patch in and glue it from the outside, instead of just turning the sleeve inside out, but it all worked together nicely. I used a very small portion of the bottle to do this large repair, so it will make many more repairs. I would definitely recommend this product to someone else.

    I was shaving pills off a bright red turtleneck with a ladies razor and tore a small hole into the turtleneck. Since I like the color so much because it leans toward orange and my other red one leans towards cherry I did not wan't to discard it. I used this on it from the inside of it and you can't even tell it had a hole in it. Thankfully after all the time I spent trying to get the pills off. I originally got it for another project I had a wool blaze with a large L shaped hole in the elbow. Since I could not reach it from the inside because it was lined it could not really fix that one.

    Essential for clothing repair |
    Verified Purchase

    Great for all kinds of clothing damage that's difficult to sew. I've used it on a thick cashmere knit scarf (put on the back, not visible, doesn't wash out), thin velvet torn at the underarm that would have been very difficult to sew, & organza torn at the underarm that would have been impossible to sew. Less visible a fix on small moth holes than sewing, and prevents unravelling. The only downside is that it had a short shelf life after opening (not as effective after a year) so you need to replace it before you've used much if you only use it for occasional repairs. But it's an essential part of a clothing repair kit.

    I wish I knew about this before I started trying to repair the leather tears in my favorite living room sofa. My two dogs were wrestling and I don't know how or why but the bit into the leather at the leather in the rear, bottom section of the sofa. I tried to use super glue to mend the rips but to no avail and decided to check Amazon. Purchased this adhesive and you can barely tell there was ever any damage to the leather at all. It bound the seams together perfectly but you have to make sure you allow for plenty of dry time before touching the affected areas.

    This stuff is incredible. I have a bunch of patches that I've been meaning to attach to my denim vest. I didn't feel like sewing all of them, so I tried getting an adhesive spray, which did not work at all. After I'd iron it, it would come off immediately. Then I found this stuff from a simple search. It got really good reviews from others, so I ordered a small bottle of it to see if it lived up to the hype. It did. All I have to do it put some around each patch and on the vest, place it on and apply pressure. That's it. It sticks in a matter of minutes and STAYS that way. The patches did not come off at all. HIGHLY recommend this product. It really works.

    Product worked well with no problems for dog except he did not like the smell. Applied tincture of benzoin to inner surface of tip of ear and to dog's forehead; when dry, then applied small amount of Tear Mender Liquid to each surface, and set dog's ear in correct position holding for a minute or two during drying. Ear stayed in training position for about 10 days and then released with residual glue naturally wearing off. Only needed to use it on one ear. Dog did not scratch or rub ear. Once ear released, inspected ear and cleaned under surface of ear with soap and water. Ear still remains in correct position after about three weeks; do not know yet if I will need to apply again.

    Verified Purchase

    Worked to close the tear in my "new" little used car. My tear was on the door, don't think it would hold up on a seat where you applied pressure on it by sitting. Works best if you have some type of fabric backing for the glue to "grab". Works great on frayed end of jeans or any other tears on fabric. Best on denim. Be careful on fabric because if you use too much it will leave a darkened or slightly yellowed spot. Not a problem with jeans or in the seam of a garment -- if you're careful. Really good product -- expect to be able to find lots of uses for it! But, loved it on my vinyl car door small v-shaped tear -- will keep it from spreading! Just 4 stars because I haven't used it but just a couple of times.

    Used Tear Mender to fix my Clam Ice Shanty |

    By pure stupidity I put a couple of dime size holes in my Clam ice fishing shanty. I did some research and came across Tear Mender. No reviews talked about fixing ice shanties, but I thought I would give it a try and glad I did. Luckily I had some fabric which resembled that of the Clam shelter and slapped it on. First I put the mender on the shanty then on the fabric patch and pressed it firmly together. In a matter of minutes the fabric adhered to the shanty and when I checked on it about 15 minutes later it was a permanent fix. So far the patches are staying on and the holes are covered. One little hole will quickly become a larger hole and then it would be expensive to purchase a new cover from Clam. Give it a try and see what happens.

    After carefully reading all the reviews, I determined that this product would be effective in mending a tear on a canvas carry bag. Not so. The actual product is a watery white liquid. I applied the product as instructed and let it dry. I might as well have applied milk to the tear. The product did not hold at all. The next day, the two sections I attempted to join together just pulled apart with little effort. I can't understand how other reviews claim that the repaired fabric is stronger than the original. Interesting note- on the bottle is the statement that the product should be used within 12 months of purchase. However, there is no date of any kind on the bottle to indicate date of manufacture. Duh! Another reason to look elsewhere- the label on the product warns that it may cause an allergic reaction.

    Dog Eared |
    Verified Purchase

    For those interested in this product to use on dog ears, it works quite well. Our breeder recommended we give this a try when our German Shepherd's ears didn't come up on their own. Tear Mender adheres firmly without causing skin irritation and holds well for weeks before working out naturally as the fur continues to grow. Any bit left can be removed with surgical adhesive remover from your pharmacist or simply clipped away. This method is less irritating to the dog than using surgical tape to adhere forms to the dog's ears, which can be bothersome and pulled off with scratching. Gluing the ears up does not encourage the dog to scratch as much as the bothersome forms, which need to be repositioned every time the dog scratches them out of place.

    Works wonderful on Small Tears in Leather Furniture |
    Verified Purchase

    We have a pottery barn leather sofa that developed a small tear about the size of a nickel. I wasn't about to spend $150 on a professional to come and fix it so I looked into alternatives. At first I wasn't happy because it seemed to be very visible but after a few weeks the bright white glue faded and became much less visible. However I would recommend using the tear mender kit that comes with the leather coloring to properly cover up a tear in leather. It's only a few bucks more and you get this product as well as a patch kit and colors to help disguise the tear. Overall its a very easy to use product that isn't too expensive for fixing up minor tears. I would recommend also using a small fine tip brush to apply this product to ensure precise application because it can come out of the applicator quite quickly and you don't need to use too much

    Probably a good product, only okay for my project |
    Verified Purchase

    I tried to use this on cracked leather seats in my car. Generally the leather is in good condition but in one spot it is cracking and I wanted to make sure the existing cracks stayed in place and did not tear the material any further. For the most part, the product worked well even if it was a little difficult to use. I tried to put some of the glue in the cracks and then hold the leather in place and wait the few minutes for it to dry, which worked well. Where I made my mistake was trying to wipe away the excess while it was still wet (glue comes out fast), which then made the glue pill and stick to itself. I ended up with a lot more glue in the cracks that protruded, which I had to pull out and then redo. My advice to anyone attempting a similar project is to be patient and trust that the glue will dry clear and you will be able to clean up any overspill later.

    Couldn't believe it fixed my shoe! |
    Verified Purchase

    I was skeptical, especially when I saw how thin the adhesive was. I had a leather shoe that had a tear along the side seam, just in front of the tongue, where your foot bends. This bending would open the tear up wide, and cause it to keep spreading. When I got the glue, the tear was almost 2 inches long. I was trying to adhere the ends of two pieces of leather together, with no overlap, so I didn't have high expectations. Luckily, there was a little backing fabric that I could use to tighten the bond. I stuck a fair amount of tear mender in there, wiped off the excess, and used a clamp to hold it all together. After about an hour, I could tell it was going to start sticking together. After 3 hours, I put the shoe on, and started walking around. It held together! I've been wearing them for about a week now, with no signs of separation. I'm VERY pleased, especially given the cost of the product. It is very inexpensive.

    Keep a bottle in your junk drawer. |
    Verified Purchase

    It does adhere very well to material. I had a tear in the front croutch area of a pair of faded blue jeans that I was able to make an unnoticable repair to (probably because it was near a seam). I then tried to mend a small hole on the buttcheek of my tan cargo pants. I applied the glue form the inside and folded the material over to close the hole. It did fix the hole, but it is a noticeable repair. People kept telling me I had sat on something and it was still on my pants. The glue does not dry clear (as mentioned on the bottle) and it did remain a little rubbery feeling even after washing. I sit in a blue cloth material chair at work where perhaps the rubberiness of the repair picked up some blue fibers to make the repair area stand out. Overall it does work, but depending upon where the mend is determines how noticable it will be. I do think it is something good to have on hand not only for the purposes used above, but for its many other uses.

    Got it for my German Shepherd's puppy ears and ended up using it all over the house! |
    Verified Purchase

    My GSD ticked off mom and got bit on the ear damaging his vein that helps the ear develop and stand up naturally. I applied this to the top 2/3 portion of the ear on the outside edge, on the fur, inside section of the ear. It created a Tee Pee stint that was left on for one month and allowed the vessel to heal and the ear to build up cartilage. It fell off in the water one month later, leaving the fur behind. This material is like the goo you get on a new credit card and business letter. It comes out like watered down elmer's kid's glue so applying it with the bottle is tricky. After our success with the puppy, I have been restoring old worn out shoes and materials that have ripped. This is not a permanent solution to your tears but it will hold it together for a good time. I can see this being used to hold materials together before sewing. It would hold it for you and leave a nice waterproof seam. Good stuff. I will find many uses for it.

AND, it's excellent for more than just mending clothes! We have used it when making Sock Puppets. The felt eyes and other fabric pieces that we add to the puppets are VERY EASILY glued down with this tear mender. Additionally, my daughter's doll clothes are easily mended and augmented with this! Add a silk flower to a scrunchy? EASY! Add some felt pieces to my daughter's doll clothes? SUPER EASY! Cut out a bunch of felt pieces and glue them all to one large white piece, and make a large picture that you can hang in your child's room? very easy, very quick, super fun! I can't believe I've not found this stuff earlier! I was using hot glue guns all the time, (and for somethings, yes, I still have to) but now I can use this and not have to worry about waiting for the hot glue gun to heat up, or burning myself, yet again, on the glue! THANK YOU FOR THIS PRODUCT!! I'm super happy with it!!

    I use this product to hem up men's denim shorts for my short legs. Men's shorts are so ridiculously long these days. I was pleasantly surprised how well this adhesive worked for this use. It bonded in seconds and the bond was very strong. So far it had maintained the bond even after repeated washings, Just be sure of the placement before using, as you won't get a second chance due to the fast bonding.

    After reading the reviews for this product I almost did not order it. I used this to repair a sofa. It is suede and leather. The leather at the top of the sofa had seperated from the suede and could not be sewn back together. I had to do three applications to get it completely fixed, but it worked and so far it is holding. The multiple applications were due to the depth and length of the rip.

    Had a couple 3-4 inch long tears in my very nice leather couch. Fixed them with the premium kit. It's not magic, it's not going to make it look like there was never a tear, but it's about as good as I could imagine anybody doing. Took about 20 mins total with half an hour in the middle. From three feet away you can't really tell anymore. Worth it for the premium kit if you are repairing a tear, the paint/dye makes the repair maybe 20% less noticeable.

    I'm using this glue to repair horse blankets. It does the job and plugged a puncture in the waterproof outer material of my blanket and has been a useful product. This product isn't invisible - it definitely looks like glue on the blanket - but has held up to washing and is waterproof. Works well for small holes or for sealing on patches, stopping fraying, etc. Not so good for tears that don't meet up, but it's glue, not a patch. All in all, useful stuff!

    So I don't know why I never thought to use this stuff for my crafting in the past, but this stuff is a miracle! Up until now I had been using crazy glue to finish off knots on bracelets and sewing, but that would often leave hard or sharp edges that I would have to file down. This stuff, on the other hand, leaves the fabric flexible and the knots securely tied. I am so happy with this product. It took a little longer to dry than the label said, but the end product made it worth it!

    Canvas sealer - Ordering 2nd bottle after 4 years of use |

    After over 4 years keeping the bottle closed, the fluid did not congeal, nor loose its mending capabilities. Today, I'm ordering a 2nd bottle to seal more canvas. Glued on a patch to my university golf shirt. 4 years and 5 washings = good as new Stitched then glued three patches to my RV awning. 4 years and 30+ windings = good as new Recently I lined the edge of the patio with canvas drop clothes that immediately started to fray under the seam, and the seam broke in two places from wind "wippage". Glued the edges. As the fluid saturates the canvas, it keeps the edges from fraying and protects the stitching.

    The main uses I bought this for was to repair a rip in some vinyl I have running my poker table. I cut a piece of cloth (old jeans) placed it inside the rip between the foam padding and the vinyl. Used the "Tear mender" to secure the vinyl to the cut cloth, after a few minutes of drying, all that could be seen was a small seam in the vinyl. Everything was secure, and was as close to new as could be gotten short of just replacing all of the vinyl. Great overall product and would purchase it again, as well as recommend it to others.

    I use this to repair small tears in fabrics of all kinds. Even on the edge of my sofa. I cannot believe it actually works. Some items have been washed over 10 times in hot water and it is still Ho Ding. One piece of advice: do not use this on white fabric. It dries to a tinted yellow color. I have used it on pastels and the glue is not visible. For me, it is easiest to use on small areas. I tried to glue a long (3") on a t-shirt and had so e difficulty getting it straight. That is likely due to my impatience. I highly recommend this product for use on all fabrics. It is amazing.

    I have had this bottle for almost a year and I have used it. I have been careful to make sure it is fully closed when i am finished doing a project and I wipe away any outside excess. No problems with the bottle or glue drying up or not working. My husband is a welder who refuses to use leathers, so his jeans come home with holes...lots of holes ... I just an old pair of jeans, place them over the holes to make sure it fits then use the Tear Mender around the hole and around the edge of the homemade patch. In a years time, only one patch has come off from washing and wearing. I just re-glued and replaced it. This size has been perfect for us. I despise sewing patches and this has been the best alternative, thus far.

    Better for fabric |
    Verified Purchase

    Not good on leather at all, but it works on fabric. I used it on my car's headliner where the fabric had come off from the edge. Working upside down was not easy. I had to drop a little on my finger then dab it on the surface. The glue on a brush just dried too quickly, so a finger was the better way. Be aware it DOES NOT dry clear. It's white and it dries white. If you're cool with that and understand this product's limitations, use it. It is not very toxic, even smells kind of nice. If it dried clear I would have given it another star, and if it had worked well on leather, I would have given it 5 stars. It's a nice rubbery glue for fabric. Just don't spill it on your cloths. It will penetrate the fabric fibers, dry, and it will never ever go away.

    Absolutely indispensable - makes jeans and shirts last years longer |
    Verified Purchase

    This is simply one of the best products you can buy to patch jeans, shirts, or other fabric. I've repaired at least a dozen pairs of jeans - knees, cuffs, pockets, etc. - and given them years more use. I've fixed a few minor tears in elbows and other parts of shirts and even a sweater. I've also used it to apply preventative patches inside the knees of my favorite pairs of jeans as they get thinner but before they tear. If they're done right, the repairs are nearly invisible on minor tears and not easy to see on clean and recent rips. The steps I follow are: 1 - Line up the tear and iron out the fabric so it's flat 2 - Cut a patch out of light but strong fabric (old dress shirts are perfect, t-shirts are too stretchy, denim is too thick) to cover the tear and an inch or so beyond it. 3 - Put a piece of wide masking tape (slightly larger than the patch) over the tear. This will keep the fabric in place and also prevent adhesive from bleeding on the outside of the garment. 4 - Turn the garment inside out 5 - Making sure the area to be patched is flat (lightly ironed again if needed) 6 - Place the patch on the fabric and mark spots around the outside with a pencil or ball point pen 7 - Turn the patch over and apply enough adhesive to spread with your finger to fully cover the patch, especially the edges so that the patch is less likely to roll up over time. 8 - Lift the patch and set it aside, adhesive side up. It may have bled through to the fabric, but this is fine. 9 - Apply adhesive to the fabric and go slightly past the marks. 10 - Let the adhesive dry to the touch, generally around 5 minutes. 11 - Once the adhesive is dry, apply the patch flat on the fabric and press. You won't have much ability to smooth it out if there are any wrinkles, so you may have to fold the edges up and apply first to the tear and then slowly lower the edges working from the inside out. 12 - If there is a lot of latex showing, sprinkle baby powder on it and smooth it in. This will keep the latex from grabbing when you put the garment on. 13 - Turn the garment inside out and peel off the masking tape. Excess adhesive should have been controlled, but there may be some if the tear was larger. Remember to let the adhesive dry before putting the pieces together. I don't think the instructions are as clear as they should be about this and it makes all the difference in the world. I have repairs that are 9 years old that still hold up after repeated washing... I may have to tack a corner down on those older patches, but they go right back on again. This stuff really is amazing. It's hard to find locally as only a handful of fabric stores carry it, but it's well worth trying.

    Bish's original tear mender. Think a runnier Elmer's Glue that binds textile together, and you've got a good idea of what the product does.

    For Denim Jeans: Great! |
    Verified Purchase

    I have only used Tear Mender for patching and repairing my Levis jeans, and for that it works totally fine. I've re-attached belt loops, and attached denim patches behind split knees. They seem to be holding very well in both cases. It is fairly flexible too -- I can feel the knee patch enough to remember it's there, but not enough to be distracting when bending down. Of course, on a silk shirt or something, it'd be very distracting -- but for work jeans, it's no problem. Excess glue that is not covered by fabric will dry and create a sort of white, mildly-gummy area which feels like thin rubber. It's not sticky or tacky at all, just a bit soft and gummy like an eraser. I don't mind this at all, as I'm more concerned with the strength of the bond, which this product does very well and very quickly on denim jeans.

    I followed the instructions on the manufacturers site as others have suggested. Once the glue was applied and let to dry it produced a white weblike residue on my leather. It did not dry clean as advertised on their videos. I've spent most of my time over the past two days removing the adhesive from my leather bag so I can do more research and find a better product. Learn from my mistake and do not buy this product for use on leather.

    In this day and age, we don't have the luxury of tossing clothes out when they need a little mending. Tear lender works like a charm. This is a latex liquid fabric adhesive. I generally repair jeans by making a patch out of old jeans and putting the patch inside the pants. The patch will last longer than the pants. Working construction means my jeans get beat up. This stuff works. I am on my third bottle. A bottle has shelf life of about 3 year if taken care of. It glues leather up like charm. I have repaired boots, belts and bracelets. It doe not work on nylon.

    This works. It is more "liquidy" than i expected, so be careful applying it. The fabric isn't as flexible as i thought it would be. But so far it is holding. I cut a small piece of the hem out, and glued it into the hole in my husband's pants (size of a pencil top). It works. Doesn't stand out as a patch, but you would notice it if you looked hard enough. If i had to, i'd buy more.

    Worked great on my brown leather jacket! |
    Verified Purchase

    I researched a lot of different options before choosing Tear Mender for my new leather jacket. I had just bought the leather jacket 2 days before it got caught on a metal piece of a mirror which left a 1/2 inch nick on the arm, and I was so upset! I specifically searched for reviews from people who had mended a leather jacket, since the quality of the mend could be different than that of a leather couch or purse. One reviewer mentioned that it does not do well under tension. Women's leather jackets are under more tension than men's jackets since we wear them tighter, but my mend has held under the tension. It does dry clear and it seems to be like the rubber cement glue that we used in elementary school. I tried applying a little more on top of the first coat because it didn't look perfectly smooth, and the first coat just peeled right off when I tried to smooth it over. This wasn't a problem since it didn't leave any residue. I just started over again, and it worked fine the second time when I left it alone for a few minutes. My jacket is made of a lighter brown leather and the mend blends in with the rest of the jacket. The nick on my jacket was not a tear or rip, but it was rather a sort of "cut" or "slice". I can't say how it would work on a more serious tear, but with the past experience, I would definitely be willing to use this for future clothing mends.

    Useful Product with Some Limitations |
    0

    While somewhat skeptical at first, I have found Tear Mender to be a useful product for repairing fabric and, in some instances, leather. In one example, I had a relatively new comforter that experienced a 1.5 inch rip far from any seam (i.e. it was in the middle of the comforter). The fabric was so thin it would be difficult to sew. With somewhat low expectations, I applied Tear Mender to the rip. Somewhat surprisingly, it closed the tear and, even after several washes, the mend has not failed. The downside, however, is now there is a visible yellow glob that contrasts with the dark fabric of the comforter. On balance, this is an acceptable drawback that prevented my having to discard the comforter. On two other occasions, I attempted to use Tear Mender on leather cross trainers. In my first attempt, the leather was torn about a half an inch near the toe. The Tear Mender repair held up only for a couple of days. On the second attempt at repairing a [different] leather cross trainer, there was fabric underneath that served as a substrate. This fared much better and has not yet failed. However, it has been a relatively short time period since the repair was made so the jury is still out. In total, Tear Mender is a useful product to have around the house. It works best when the tear includes material that overlaps. The adhesive on its own doesn't have the tensile strength to maintain closure of a tear that is under cyclic tension. Pros Useful for a variety of materials Requires no skill or sewing materials Cons Somewhat unsightly yellow gobs will remain in some scenarios Not strong enough for non-overlapping leather tears that are under tensile stresses

    Rather impressed |
    Verified Purchase

    I used this product to repair a tear in the bottom right corner of one of my favorite shirts (two ply, plaid, button-down-the-front), several tears in my two old leather sofas, and some somewhat structural tears in a chair with snap-on leather cushions. In every case, the tear mender held its bond between the two sides of the tear being fixed, but there are some idiosyncrasies in each case that are worth mentioning. In the case of the shirt, the product did eventually take on the color of the shirt, but there is a sort of haziness to it that is obvious if one looks for it. That being said, since it's in a corner, nobody is going to notice in my case. In the case of the old leather sofas, the tear mender held wonderfully. I should mention, however, that these sofas are slightly off-white, but since they have seen so much use, the areas that are mended look far better than they would if they had not been mended. There is still some visible discoloration, but it isn't too far from a baseline look that they have developed from years of use (though they have always been treated well). In the case of the chair with snap-on leather cushions, I used the tear mender to repair the tears around the snaps. The snaps were mounted to the fabric, which had torn, on the undersides of the cushions. The tear mender performed spectacularly, and the snaps are back in action. Since it was the undersides of the cushions that needed repair, I didn't really care about any color anomalies at all. Overall, this stuff is pretty good for repairing leather and fabric tears. The only way it could be better is if it matched colors exactly instead of casting a hazy, darkened hue over the repair site. Then again, for the amount of effort required to use this product (i.e. knowing how to use glue), I think it was a win.

    I like this stuff. It is my 2nd purchase of tear mender. I have mended quite a few pieces of clothing and purses and it works great. It does have to be used rather quickly, because the shelf life isn't very long. I had a large bottle of it before and had to throw it out because it went bad. Now, I will only buy small bottles at a time. But all in all very good item.

    Verified Purchase

    I've seen some conflicting reviews on this product, and I have decided to try it myself. I'm very weary of glue type repair products ... as success with them is usually spotty. The first time I tried to use this, I used a bottle that someone else bought. The product on the inside, was kind of sluggish and clogged the applicator. I thought I was using it wrong, so I checked the instructional videos on tear mender's website - and I'm glad I did. I found out, if your tear mender is like this - it is past its usable life, and is expired - return it. Tear mender should be liquid, very easy to apply. To apply, it's very simple - use it exactly as directed. Grab some scrap fabric that matches your repair, put tear mender on the garment and the scrap - and stick it together. The hold is instant, it's strong in a few minutes. I was impressed - this stuff is awesome. It holds better than a sewn repair! Why? It bonds the frayed tear. VERY GOOD PRODUCT, I can't stress that enough. I'm seriously glad that I dug a little deeper with this product - as I just saved a couple of my favorite pairs of pants with it (they were un-sewable, and I was about to toss them.) This was my last ditch effort on them, and it worked. VERY happy with this great product - and believe me, if it's not working for you - you're probably not using it right. Check the videos on the manufacturer's site for proper use - you will not be disappointed. :)

    I can't believe I never heard of this product before a few months ago... since then, I keep finding new uses for it. (Case in point: Just the other night I did a quick repair of a couple of oven mitts that had their seams torn apart a bit when I washed them.) Tear Mender creates a bond that is actually stronger than the fabric itself, and it's really quick and easy to use. The only caveats: 1) if you use this on thinner fabrics, it will stiffen them and probably discolor them, since the fabric soaks up the glue -- thus, it's best for either thicker fabric or if you are using it in a hidden seam; 2) it's easy when you're using it to get a drop or two on your pants or shirt -- this is to be avoided at all costs, however, since it will create a little rubbery stain on them that you will NEVER get out -- so either wear "paint clothes" or just be very careful when gluing. (It does come off your fingers very easily, though -- just rub it off -- and it's non-toxic.) Overall, Tear Mender is an awesome product, and you will always want to have a bottle of it in your cupboard. It might even be as useful as the duct tape and WD-40! ;-)

I'm seriously glad that I dug a little deeper with this product - as I just saved a couple of my favorite pairs of pants with it (they were un-sewable, and I was about to toss them.) This was my last ditch effort on them, and it worked. VERY happy with this great product - and believe me, if it's not working for you - you're probably not using it right. Check the videos on the manufacturer's site for proper use - you will not be disappointed. :)

    Leather repair |
    Verified Purchase

    This product works a advertised, it mended a 6 inch long tear in my leather car seat. It dries in under 60 minutes. The only knock I will give it is that it will run so just be careful when applying it. Easy to remove excess glue. It just rubs off.

    works great Amazon |
    Verified Purchase

    I like this stuff. It is my 2nd purchase of tear mender. I have mended quite a few pieces of clothing and purses and it works great. It does have to be used rather quickly, because the shelf life isn't very long. I had a large bottle of it before and had to throw it out because it went bad. Now, I will only buy small bottles at a time. But all in all very good item.

    Rather impressed |
    Verified Purchase

    I used this product to repair a tear in the bottom right corner of one of my favorite shirts (two ply, plaid, button-down-the-front), several tears in my two old leather sofas, and some somewhat structural tears in a chair with snap-on leather cushions. In every case, the tear mender held its bond between the two sides of the tear being fixed, but there are some idiosyncrasies in each case that are worth mentioning. In the case of the shirt, the product did eventually take on the color of the shirt, but there is a sort of haziness to it that is obvious if one looks for it. That being said, since it's in a corner, nobody is going to notice in my case. In the case of the old leather sofas, the tear mender held wonderfully. I should mention, however, that these sofas are slightly off-white, but since they have seen so much use, the areas that are mended look far better than they would if they had not been mended. There is still some visible discoloration, but it isn't too far from a baseline look that they have developed from years of use (though they have always been treated well). In the case of the chair with snap-on leather cushions, I used the tear mender to repair the tears around the snaps. The snaps were mounted to the fabric, which had torn, on the undersides of the cushions. The tear mender performed spectacularly, and the snaps are back in action. Since it was the undersides of the cushions that needed repair, I didn't really care about any color anomalies at all. Overall, this stuff is pretty good for repairing leather and fabric tears. The only way it could be better is if it matched colors exactly instead of casting a hazy, darkened hue over the repair site. Then again, for the amount of effort required to use this product (i.e. knowing how to use glue), I think it was a win.

    Works wonderful on Small Tears in Leather Furniture |
    Verified Purchase

    We have a pottery barn leather sofa that developed a small tear about the size of a nickel. I wasn't about to spend $150 on a professional to come and fix it so I looked into alternatives. At first I wasn't happy because it seemed to be very visible but after a few weeks the bright white glue faded and became much less visible. However I would recommend using the tear mender kit that comes with the leather coloring to properly cover up a tear in leather. It's only a few bucks more and you get this product as well as a patch kit and colors to help disguise the tear. Overall its a very easy to use product that isn't too expensive for fixing up minor tears. I would recommend also using a small fine tip brush to apply this product to ensure precise application because it can come out of the applicator quite quickly and you don't need to use too much

    Better for fabric |
    Verified Purchase

    Not good on leather at all, but it works on fabric. I used it on my car's headliner where the fabric had come off from the edge. Working upside down was not easy. I had to drop a little on my finger then dab it on the surface. The glue on a brush just dried too quickly, so a finger was the better way. Be aware it DOES NOT dry clear. It's white and it dries white. If you're cool with that and understand this product's limitations, use it. It is not very toxic, even smells kind of nice. If it dried clear I would have given it another star, and if it had worked well on leather, I would have given it 5 stars. It's a nice rubbery glue for fabric. Just don't spill it on your cloths. It will penetrate the fabric fibers, dry, and it will never ever go away.

    saves my working clothes... |
    Verified Purchase

    In this day and age, we don't have the luxury of tossing clothes out when they need a little mending. Tear lender works like a charm. This is a latex liquid fabric adhesive. I generally repair jeans by making a patch out of old jeans and putting the patch inside the pants. The patch will last longer than the pants. Working construction means my jeans get beat up. This stuff works. I am on my third bottle. A bottle has shelf life of about 3 year if taken care of. It glues leather up like charm. I have repaired boots, belts and bracelets. It doe not work on nylon.

    Fixed a leather belt |
    Verified Purchase

    Worked well for my purpose, which was to glue a leather belt that did separated/split somehow (front and back side came apart over the whole length). The Tear Mender is a white liquid like latex that turns into a beige elastic rubber substance that holds things together. Negative: it's not clear to me how to close the bottle once it's open and the seal is broken.
