Perfect in use and very easy to colour blend.
on 12 December 2013
I was feeling rather raw when I'd spent £700 on an LG washing machine to find out the big 10 year warranty logo on the front only covered the motor. What's more I was quoted £75 + Parts + labour for a call out to look at a ripped door seal!
I found the part online and watched a video of how to fit it but obviously this wasn't going to be an overnight solution and washing quickly builds up in a household of 4.
Hearing about Sugru from a friend I thought I'd give it a go, it turned up the next day from Amazon and within 5 minutes the repair job was finished. The colour match was next to perfect using a blend of about 70% White and 30% black, it was really easy to mould into place. I did find it a little difficult to smooth out the lumps and bumps but I reckon it would be hardly noticeable unless you were looking for it (images posted in the gallery). In use it worked perfectly with no more leaks from the door when in use. Money well spent and I may put off replacing the door seal until next year now.
So once you have opened the packet you have to use it all! what to do with the other 70% black? well within about 30 seconds I'd thought of a couple of jobs. I've got a large tripod lamp with brass feet on an oak floor, every time the kids knock it the floor gets scratched, I carefully moulded the remaining black Sugru around each of the brass feet, again perfect job and no more scratched floor.
Not sure what I'll do with the red, yellow and Blue but I'll certainly be buying some more black and white for my next DIY job. Brilliant product.
