This One Product Will Make You Handier at Home (While You’re Stuck There)

Sponsored by Bondic bondic image

If there’s one truth about work from home, it’s that suddenly everything in your home seems to stop working.

You open your blinds in the morning, and the wand breaks off. You sit on your patio chairs in the afternoon, and the mesh comes loose. You take off your glasses at night, and the nose pad falls off. And with every day of work from home, your to-do list gets longer.

If your house is anything like mine, you’re looking around between video conferences and realizing everything is broken.

I spent the first few days of WFH hunting down superglue, opening it up, and somehow having as much ooze out onto my fingers and kitchen table (add that to the list of things to fix!) as I needed for the entire project.

At the end of the day, more things were ending up broken than fixed.

That’s when I found Bondic.

What’s Bondic?

Maybe it’s unfair for me to tell you how much better Bondic is than superglue (it’s about 1000x better) when Bondic isn’t even a glue.

Bondic is liquid plastic. It’s solvent-free. And, it doesn’t just stick your things together like glue. It welds them together — without the heat.

And, unlike glue, which dries out in the bottle before you even use it, Bondic stays wet. It also stays wet as you work with it, so you don’t have to rush and stick your fix-it together. (How many times have you done this only to realize that your repair turned out slightly crooked? I have a picture frame that still haunts me.)

You can work with Bondic for as long as you’d like — sticking and resticking your project until you’re happy. If you accidentally use too much or get it on your fingers or work surface, just wash it off and start again. Once you’re happy with your project, set the liquid plastic by shining the UV light from the starter kit on it until it hardens (about 3-4 seconds).

Bondic is so easy to use I checked off my entire to-do list on my lunch break.

What Can Bondic Fix?

In a word: everything. Okay, everything might be an exaggeration, but barely. Bondic can be used to bond two things together, create molds, or fill in chips and cracks.

I used it to fill a chip in a trivet we’d dropped on the tile floor. Once Bondic sets, it’s heat-resistant. We take hot pots and pans directly off the stove and set it on top of our trivet — the seal is still going strong.

Bondic is even dishwasher safe and works underwater.

You can use it in a fish tank, swimming pool, or backyard water feature. Once Bondic sets, you can sand, file, polish, varnish, or paint it. That makes it perfect for filling in a crack on an old dresser you plan to paint or even a chip in a fingernail you want to polish. (Yes, you can use Bondic on your fingernails!)

How Do You Use It?

You can use Bondic on rough or smooth surfaces, and you have complete control over the adhesive strength. For a stronger bond, you can make the surface rougher with sandpaper or undercuts.

Once you’re happy with the surface, just clean it off, apply the liquid plastic welder, and set it with the UV light for 3-4 seconds. If you want to shape it with sandpaper, you can go to work as soon as the liquid plastic sets.

If you’re filling in a crack or a chip, work in layers and set each layer of Bondic separately to ensure the plastic sets all the way through.
That’s it! The whole process only takes seconds. And when you’re done, you have a strong, safe, long-lasting bond.

So, How Do I Get My Hands on This Stuff?

(I did this for fun just to see if Bondic would hold up…and it did! Don’t judge me, I’ve been stuck at home, bored!)

Bondic knows that at difficult times like these, fixing what you have is a way to save money. And they want to help you do that.

Right now, Bondic is running a special. If you buy three, you can get two free. If you’re not sure you’ll use five kits yet, you can send two of them to my house … or, you can opt for the buy two, get one free deal instead.

Personally, I’ll take as many as I can get my hands on. There’s something about Bondic that sticks with you.
