Tool Talk Tuesday: Mighty Putty

Sometimes, DIY projects get a little crazy. Sometimes, you were pretty sure this or that was gonna work. Sometimes, you make {ahem} mistakes.

On the great outdoor living quest, I was CERTAIN I had something all figured out...until it fell off the stucco wall TWICE. No tool I had could handle the project I was asking of it - and naturally, I'm far too impatient to wait for my dad to get home from his vacation to run over here and fix the problem. So, I ran to Target and found THIS CRAZY INFOMMERCIAL product!

I haven't tried it yet, but it seems so intense that I decided it would work. Sadly, I ran out of daylight tonight...and I was somewhat intimidated by the bright blue gloves that came in the package. ; )

SCARY!

Has anyone out there tried Mighty Putty? From the famous infommercial guy's expression, it sounds like this is better than sliced bread...or even crazy glue! Have you ever had a project go south and turned to some creative solutions? PLEASE share with the class, as we're all in this together!

I've just heard from others that you NEED TO WEAR THE GLOVES or else you'll burn your skin. So, yeah, scary!

I so can't wait to hear how it works! I've been tempted to buy it myself...not because I need it, but because I might someday. Hope it doesn't let us down!

i had pretty mediocre luck with the old mighty putty. it didn't fix my broken plate. very very sad. And, the mighty putty was a gift from one of my co-workers who knew how much I loved watching the info-mercial guy - even though I repeatedly asked him to stop yeeling.
