Sugru is the magical, moldable household putty-like glue with a million uses—but we've rounded up our 14 favorite applications. Guaranteed there are at least three here that will change your life. (And the best part? It's only $10 on Amazon!)
Charger Repair by @zero.waste.net
How many chargers have we all lost to the dreaded bendy-fray? Use Sugru to reinforce a charger that's starting to go, or reinforce one now so it never does.
Backsplash Hooks by @jen_em
This is flat-out genius. Tiled backsplashes are great, and hanging things from backsplashes is great, too, but how do you make a hook work with tile? Just make your own hook.
Straw Purse Repair by @debsterjvl
Anyone who's ever owned and loved a straw purse knows the heartbreak of frayed handles; Sugru makes them useable again, while adding a colorful kick (if desired).
Heel Repair by @secretfashionfixes
One hundred percent of business ladies in '80s movies suffered a broken heel, and probably a good percentage of real-life heel-wearers have too. Make your favorite pair last with a handcrafted little heel cap.
Camera Fix @omd17
This fix is a great chance to point out how badass it looks when you swirl different Sugru colors together. Create a custom blend or just mash all your leftover bits together. Either way, Sugru makes it easier to grip your valuable cameras and electronics.
Visible Mending by @botterman_empire
This is a fun take on kintsugi, with colorful Sugru serving as a playful, modern substitute for gold on this repaired vintage plate.
Childproofing by @sykkeloyvind
Having a child around means realizing that every single thing at kid-head level is completely deadly. Cushion those sharp edges with a generous coating of Sugru, either in neutrals or kid-friendly brights.
Luggage Wheel Repair by @gomimeruu
Another example of pure genius: Suitcase wheels give out approximately 20 years earlier than suitcases themselves, so building the wheel back up is a great way to actually get a reasonable luggage lifespan.
Phone Case Fix by @jealam
Is there a phone case out there that's totally crack-proof? Fix your fave with some Sugru in an accent color.
Visible Mending by @remi_spikker
This stunning piece has the look of an artifact from the future: Organic, hand-carved wood repaired with some sort of powerful futuristic goo.
It's handy to keep a razor in the shower, but letting a razor sit in any sort of moisture is not a good way to go. Little handmade hooks adhere to tiles and can hold a variety of lightweight items.
Plant Pot by @homemadeproductionsuk
This plastic pot is elevated literally and stylistically with the addition of plastic beads adhered with Sugru.
Lens Cap Strap by @leuanzu
Never lose your lens cap again and set your camera apart with an attachment that's as cute as it is handy.
Monstera Light by @homemadeproductionsuk
An IKEA shelf bracket, light cord, and faux leaf are brought together by the magic of Sugru.
