Stop spending your hard-earned cash on an endless parade of coffee mugs! Learn how to fix a broken mug instead of replacing it. Cracks and chips can easily be fixed with a few simple steps.
Did you reach for your favourite mug only to have the handle snap off? Learn how to fix a broken mug handle by following a few easy steps.
- Get all your materials together. You’ll need mild dish soap and water, a clean dry cloth, and a quality porcelain glue.
- Make sure the mug is clean and dry.
- Apply adhesive to the handle and the mug. Make sure the handle is lined up properly before gluing, then press the two parts firmly together.
- Follow the instructions on the label. Pay attention to how long you need to hold it in place for optimal adhesion.
Chips in mugs are a pretty common occurrence, but that doesn’t mean they have to land in the trash. Learn how to fix a chipped mug so you don’t have to break up your collection.
- Select the right glue. You'll also need mild dish soap and water, gloves so you don't cut yourself on the chip, and an old clean rag or paper towel.
- Ensure that you start with a clean, dry mug.
- Apply the glue. Use a small amount on the piece that chipped off the mug, and another on the mug itself. If you don’t have all the chipped pieces on hand, it may be necessary to build up the area with a little extra Glue. You can then file away any excess glue after it dries.
- Allow the mug to dry for the time specified in the directions.
Remember to choose a glue that is dishwasher safe which will ensure a long-lasting hold!
