He enlisted me to help decide on which ones to keep and we came across a gorgeous silk shirt and a cashmere knit that had tiny holes around the collar, right on the seam.
I thought we would have to get rid of the shirts as they could not be sewn because of the way the seams had come apart...
I thought and thought and remembered a really obnoxiously loud Billy Mays shouting about some new product called "Mighty Mendit". I am definitely one for easy fixing so I decided to head down to Target and see if they had it in store.
They did. I took a chance, bought it and pulled it out of the box.
For about $10 bucks, you can get a large bottle of the Mighty Mendit as well as a small bottle of Gemit and a little bag of rhinestones to "Gem" to your phone, t-shirt or something else. Mighty Mendit is a flexible bonding agent that claims to be great at fixing cuffs and hems, upholstery, leather, denim, scrapbooking and crafting, seams, plush, toys and more. It dries clear, is machine washable and is safe for most fabric.
I carefully used a toothpick to spread the "Mighty Mendit" into the small holes that needed to be fixed. I then took a clean toothpick and tucked the exposed seam stitching into the whole thus mending it. This stringy, quick drying substance is said to dry super quick so be aware of this. Make sure you read the directions carefully before using too.
I really think this product works well. I have since repaired my son's toys, a pillow a pair of jeans and 2 of my husbands shirts.
On the commercial it claims to withstand the washer several times over after mending something...that I have yet to test and see but will do so when the time comes. For now I am satisfied.
