Best household items to repair with the cyanoacrylate glue:

Broken Vase:

1.Stick the pieces back: Collect all the broken pieces and assemble them. Prepare the cyanoacrylate glue, apply a small amount on the pieces and paste one by one. Start with smaller pieces and hold with the cyanoacrylate adhesive. After letting it dry, remove the ca glue left with a rag soaked in alcohol and a razor blade.

2.Mastic to hide imperfections: Some cracks may persist despite all your precautions. To hide imperfections, apply some mastic on the slots and smooth immediately. Scratch the overflow when the mastic is dry. Polish lightly with sandpaper.

3.Fill in the cracks: If you can't find the small pieces of your vase, pour a few drops of cyanoacrylate glue to fill the small holes. Let it dry and polish.

Repair a glass, Bowl or a plate:

1.Surface cleaning: Before repairing glass, first clean and degrease the surfaces so that they are perfectly clean.

For a plate or bowl repair, spread the glue on the part of the object to be repaired, using the brush. For a glass repair, apply the ca glue in small dots on one of the two surfaces.

2.Press firmly: Once the glue is applied, assemble both parts. For the glass, you must press for 1 minute for the glue to act. Otherwise, press and hold for 10 seconds. Let it rest for a couple of hours.

Desk lamp:

1.Clean the surface: Before you begin repairing your desk lamp, make sure the surfaces to be glued are clean, dry, and adjusted. To do this, wipe the contact surface of the broken piece and the lamp with a cloth.

2.Apply super glue: Apply a line of cyanoacrylate glue along the perimeter of the broken piece. Then, glue the broken piece on the ceramic lamp by firmly positioning the two pieces together. Hold for at least 10 seconds.


1.Prepare the broken frame: Unhook the frame from the wall and place it face down. If the glass is cracked, handle the frame gently, making sure to wear protective gloves. Loosen the hook and the clamps on the back of the frame and remove them.

2.Disassemble the frame: Disassemble all loose parts. If you see nails or fasteners, remove them. Take apart the frame entirely!

3.Clean the area to be glued: Sand the upper layer with sandpaper if the frame is scratched. Continue sanding to remove claws. Make sure that the two parts to be glued are assembled perfectly, without leaving gaps. Clean the area with a cloth to remove the excess material after sanding.

4.Apply the glue to the frame: Glue the dissociated joints by applying a small amount of cyanoacrylate glue to one of the pieces at each joint and press for a few seconds. Repeat with the other corners if necessary.
