Sometimes I just need to complete an easy hack or finish a quick fix and don’t want the hassle of firing up the drill. That’s when Sugru comes in handy. Sugru, if you’ve not heard of it, is a mouldable glue that sticks to almost anything and turns into a strong flexible rubber overnight.
I’ve used it to repair the broken handle on my scissors. I also used it to attach NÄSSJÖ candle holders onto the bottom of my EXPEDIT shelving unit to serve as feet. Let me tell you folks, this stuff works.
So I’m really happy to share these two hacks from Sugru, which you can make with the IKEA TOSTERUP door handle and a few packets of Sugru mouldable glue.
#1 Tidy up the mail in the hallway
Get organised and keep your things in order around the house with a mail organiser. Great for annoying bills too.
The TOSTERUP door handle is made of folded metal and sticks well to Sugru which in turn sticks well to most surfaces. This makes it a perfect letter rack for anywhere in the house.
1. Use ½ a pack of Sugru and roll into 2 balls.
2. Press onto the smaller side of the door handle and shape into two cones.
3. Press firmly onto the wall. In 24 hours, Sugru turns into a strong and flexible rubber.
The same project can also be used to make the most of your home office space.
SHELFIE ALERT: Although cured Sugru is strong enough to hold up to 2kg in weight, it’s always a good idea to test the shelf before using.
