How do fix a flip flop in an emergency if you are out and it breaks?
So you are out and your flip flop breaks,the little plastic piece came out of the hole and now the hole is too big,what do u do? How to get it temporarily fixed to get through the store without hopping on one foot?
A milk jug. Buy a half gallon of milk and drink it (or have your children do it). A quart is fine too if it's that soft plastic. Use the scissors from your car, or purchase some for a dollar, and cut a piece bigger than the thing on the bottom. Make one slit towards the center, and then cut a tiny hole. Slide it between the bottom thing and the sole, with the slit facing whichever way there is less pressure. Use tape across the slit, if necessary to make it home.
A water bottle will work also, of course. I wouldn't want to endorse milk toxicity haha.
Apparently bread tags work pretty well. I've never personally tried it. I grabbed this image from google. It's healthier than drinking a gallon of milk.
find a metal clip (hairpin, paperclip, nail) and hammer it through the broken end. should stick till you get home.
awesome tip didn't know there was so many ideas.
the cobblers here use a cobblers nail with some superglue to keep you going. lasts for about 5-6 months at times.
shoe maker = cobbler ... never saw one when I was in the UK or USA. we usually have one in every market area. they sit on the side of the road or the corner points of a street. will send you a pic if i can.
