Might Mend It Tested on Various Fabrics in This Video Review

by Theresa on September 5, 2009 · 1 comment

Mighty Mend It has some mighty big claims. The infomercial boasts that "You rip, tear, and never have time to repair. Wait, before you throw it away, let Mighty Mendit save the day." Wow how poetic is that.  So can this bonding agent really replace the need to sew ripped fabric hems and other broken household items? I've watched several different video reviews on this product and the results are in!

Mighty Mend It tested on various fabrics

Mighty Mend It Claims

The fast, easy way to mend, hem and wear it again. We even repaired a parachute with Mighty Mend It and it still has the strength to safely land this skydiver from thirteen thousand feet.
It's machine washable. Even after 50 washes the bond still stays strong.

What the Infomercial Doesn't Tell You

After applying Mighty Mend It, you can wash that item but not in hot or warm water.
You also can't iron it and dry cleaning fluid will actually dissolve it.
The infomercial makes it look like Mighty Mend It works instantly, but the directions clearly say that it's wearable after two hours and washable after 24 hours.

Mighty Mendit Test Results

In the video above a group of fashion students test it on various fabrics.

In this second video, the makers of Mighty Mendit were also contacted to show what you can expect from using their product.

Test 2
Fox 16 News tested four different items - a teddy bear, a shirt pocket,  a stuffed pillow with a broken seam and belt loop on a pair of jeans. The pillow seam looked very ugly after applying Mighty Mend It. That's not all. After the clothing items were washed the belt look came apart and the shirt pocket easily ripped open. I'm not sure why he had different results because Robin had success after washing the items after applying Mighty Mendit. The teddy bear seam looked ok but then they were afraid that kids would put that in their mouth.

Test 3
KDKA News applied Mighty Mend It to three fabric seams - Denim, imitation leather and upholstery fabric. After 24 hours they checked the seam repair and found that the denim held well even after tugging hard. The leather and the upholstery seams did not hold. They could actually pull the seams apart with their hands.

Mighty Mend It on straight seams seems to work best and is only for a quick fix although it might not hold up for the long term. Also when you're trying to repair a seam that doesn't lay completely flat like a stuffed animal, a pillow or a belt loop it doesn't seem to work or hold. It's far to expensive a product if you buy it online. It ends up being around $29 for shipping and handling. You can pick up a similar product like Fabri-Tac costs about $9 at Michael's. The bottle costs a third of the price and is actually twice as big. If you still want to locate Mighty Mend it in stores you can get it at Bed Bath and Beyond and Walgreens.

I did a quick check of the stuff at my Walgreen’s and it is indeed Fabric Glue, the same stuff we buy all the time at the craft stores.
So don’t buy the expensive brand, just go to your craft store and get the regular old fabric glues you’ve used for years.
Move Along…
