Every year my kids manage to wear out their snow pants before winter is over. Usually it's at the end of the season, but this year Junior went through his knees in February. We're going to need those for two more months! Sure, they're on sale everywhere right now, but if we could just patch them they'd be fine.
|Worn out snow pants knees! Those sure aren't waterproof any more.|
|The Duck Tape sheets are roughly 8 x 10"|
|So I cut them in half (now they are 8 x 5").|
|Trimmed them a bit and rounded the corners.|
|Peel off the backing and apply. Make sure the surface is free of dirt and|
pet hair. If you wash them, don't use fabric softener: it makes it harder
for the adhesive to bond to the fabric.
|Tah-dah! Snow pants repaired for about $2.50. |
I'd let the patches cure for a day or so before giving them
a tough test outside.
