You Should Never Forget This When You’re Packing Your Bags for a Trip

Whether you’re staying in a luxury hotel or backpacking in a region that could fit into the Lord of the Rings film set, there are essentials you need to pack. You’re probably thinking about cameras, phones and chargers, but I’m going to tell you some super glue uses and why you should never travel without it. 

 

In many ways, super glue uses are even greater when traveling, and is more essential than having it in the house.

Super Glue Uses – And Why You Should Always Pack it When You Travel

 

Don’t find yourself in need of a repair when you’re traveling. These super glue uses are perfect for on-the-go moments.

 

Backpack and Luggage Repair

 

Even if you have a brand new suitcase or backpack, they can and do get damaged. This can be on the flight or when hiking up mountains and across valleys.

 

Should something happen to your luggage mid-flight, or on the way to the hotel, it is an inconvenience you can do without. A dab of glue and the suitcase is usable for the rest of the trip.

If you’re moving around from place to place, this is arguably essential.

 

Similarly, if you’re hiking up a mountain and a strap breaks or starts to show wear and tear, a dab of glue keeps it in the game. It is not much fun hiking without a fully working backpack.

 

Fixing a backpack is one of the best super glue uses. 

 

Sunglasses Repair

 

If you’re laying on the beach, looking cool with your sunglasses, the last thing you want is for the sunglasses to break. This is when super glue can be applied to keep your coolness unaffected.

Toy Repair

 

Many families enjoy taking the kids somewhere special such as Norway, the place that inspired the smash-hit movie, Frozen. Chances are your children want to bring their favorite toy with them, and sadly, the toy may become damaged.
