How to fix the zip on your suitcase
Save your holiday money with this clever little idea
We all know the last minute stress before going away – after all, it’s your vacation and you want everything to run smoothly. So while you’re packing your Summer essentials, don’t forget to include a pack of Sugru!
The last thing anyone needs is for something you need to break while you’re away — like your sunglasses or your sandals falling apart just as you hit the beach.
With Sugru in your bag you’ll always have an immediate fix right there with you, so you won’t waste any of your precious vacation time looking for replacements and you can get back to the important things, like relaxing in the sunshine…. bliss!
Sugru is waterproof, so it’s great for fixing things you need for the beach or by the pool — like repairing the sole on your favourite sandals. Need to stock up on Sugru? Head over here!
For this project all you need is one single use sachet of Sugru.
Step 1 – Open the pack and roll your Sugru into a ball.
Step 2 – Pinch a small amount of Sugru from the ball and smudge it across both sides of the exposed sole, then press the sole firmly together.
Step 3 – Roll the remaining Sugru into a sausage and press this along the edge of the sole where it first split, pressing down carefully and then smooth it with your finger.

This is just so clever. Patrick from Germany hacked the swing top bottle of his favourite beer to build a book holder. Perfect for those beach days. You'll get a sense of satisfaction every time you use this!
