📝 My Hands-on Test of Goop Glue
When it comes to versatility, Goop Glue is unparalleled. I have successfully glued rope, brick, wood, plastics, and ceramics, among other materials. Its adhesive properties are outstanding, providing a strong and long-lasting bond. Whether I’m working on repairs or securing decorations, Goop Glue never fails to deliver. Plus, it’s water and weather-resistant, making it ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications.
One of the standout features of Goop Glue is its ease of use. The application process is straightforward, and the glue adheres to a variety of surfaces, including walls, ceilings, and more. I appreciate that it remains water and weather-resistant even after drying, ensuring a reliable and durable bond. The peace of mind I get from knowing that my repairs will hold up under different conditions is priceless.
In terms of value for money, Goop Glue exceeds expectations. While the product may seem thick, it spreads easily and covers a significant area. I find that a little goes a long way, and the one-ounce size is ideal for most of my projects. The glue’s consistency may thicken over time, but it remains perfectly usable for a year or two. This longevity ensures that I can rely on Goop Glue whenever I need it, without worrying about its effectiveness.
I must mention that Goop Glue is not suitable for fixing small objects or cracks due to its thickness. However, for larger-scale projects, it is an excellent choice. The strong bond it creates is reliable and long-lasting, giving me confidence in its performance. I have used it for various applications, from repairing the soles of my slippers to hemming leather pants, and it has exceeded my expectations every time.
While Goop Glue is undeniably a fantastic product, it’s essential to be mindful of the size when making a purchase. I made the mistake of ordering the one-ounce tube, thinking it was a larger size, and ended up receiving less product than expected. I recommend opting for the 3.7-ounce tube to ensure you get the quantity you need. It’s worth noting that the pricing is reasonable for the larger size, making it a more cost-effective choice.

It’s recommended to use a product specifically designed for dishwasher repairs, such as a dishwasher rack coating or repair kit, for a more durable and long-lasting solution.
📝 My Hands-on Test of E6000
The fierce smell of the glue does require using it in a well-ventilated area, and it’s not for quick applications. However, it is some of the best stuff out there for small projects that need to stay stuck. I love that these come in small tubes because you only need a tiny bit, and the large tubes tend to dry out before you can use them all. These small tubes are perfect for my smaller projects and prevent any waste, as the glue doesn’t dry up.
The secret is to let it sit for 24 hours before any use. I highly recommend this glue for various crafting projects, such as craft tumblers, and prefer the one that dries clear.
Still two layers eva, 4 nylon straps with two bucks and adjustments, one just goes over top, other crosses and goes around ankle. Shot of damage for showing it is not perfect, but I also probably could have been more vigilant and keeping it tight. No sewing, e6000 glue.PlasmaGryphon
Overall, E6000 glue has proven to be much better than any other adhesive I’ve tried and I will definitely continue using it for my future projects.
