Sometimes, I might babble on with a lot of old drivel….
“GM talks drivel 24/7!”
Who said that?
Was it you Darren? Careful now, I might demote you from the Toyboy list! 😛
Sometimes my babble contains snippits of advice or a handy tip, or ‘another’ way to tackle a problem. Apparently a few weeks ago, I did just that: Offer a suggestion to use Sugru®, in a blog comment at THEKITCHENSGARDEN, all the way over in Illinois, USofA. Then the Toyboys distracted me and I forgot all about it.
I forgot all about it until yesterday, when katechiconi in Australia, another regular visitor to The Kitchens Garden, made contact to tell me. She had followed the link to Sugru®, sourced, purchased and used the product. Today she followed up with a blog post on how she used it for Earbuds – in simple detail!
I last used this wonerful product in december and you can read about it here.
Declaration 1: I have no connection with the Sugru® Empire – well, the company has certainly grown since the first little video I watched from a young lady… I think she was in her father’s workshop or garden shed. I am a great believer in thinking outside the box and that is exactly what this young lady did… and built an empire!
What a remarkable story! Just when we think that the world is a huge big place, something like this happens to remind us that it can be a small world too!
Yes, Ramana, and adding you from India and Col (in the comment below) from Africa, the world is just one big village!
The young lady who developed it certainly had vision and tenacity.
I want some! Just the sort of thing I am constantly in need of.
It has amazing uses and comes in a rainbow of colours. Mind you Col, you would need a truckful to fill in the gap round that new window! 😉
It’s great when we can share something of value with others.
Nancy, If I find something that works to make my life easy – like using a nut cracker to grip and open screw top bottles and cartons, I immediately want to share it with others.
I’m about to walk the dog now, but will come back later and check out these sites. thanks.
There is no time limit, Dianne,. Enjoy your walk!
I agree with those who commented before me–it’s a wonderful thing to be able to share what we’ve found helpful. A year or so ago after I wrote about a slight injury I had several people share remedies that were new to me. I followed up on most and was quite grateful. I don’t know this product at all, and it does sound interesting. 🙂
Debra, if we cannot help one another by sharing, there is not much point in living.
Back now, enjoyed reading abut Sugru. Now I need to find it. That silicone is great stuff.
Dianne, it is great stuff and very easy to use in so many ways.
I bought some Sugru packets some time in 2013. I only used a little, so stored the rest in the refrigerator to extend the shelf life. When we went on our trip last summer, we planned to empty the fridge and turn it off, so the Sugru went with us in the motorhome fridge. I ended up using most of it for a cabinet repair that I could not get to hold with screws. I was glad I had it along with us.
Great product. I need to order more. I’m all out.
Elly was here this weekend and used my last pack moulded with some Glow in the Dark Neon Colored Paint Powder to add strips to a suitcase she will need for air travel. She hopes it will make for easy identification on a busy airport baggage carousel. She also wants to add some more to tent pegs – a great idea we found on the site.
