Super Glue and Baking Soda Trick to Repair Plastic Popsicle Mold

by Jonathan Downing on February 07, 2022

We have another neat little trick on using Starbond glues. Maybe you've seen this method before but it works with all CA glues. I have here a popsicle mold. I've got it fresh from the store and there was a hole right where the mold have been ejected the plastic. No problem. I'm going to show you how to fix this using a baking soda and Starbond Superglue. Now, this would work with any super glue as I said but it would work best with the medium one due to its higher viscosity. If you use a thin super glue, you might actually have it penetrating into the mold before you could have a complete bonding reaction. What the baking soda does is to act as a catalyst instantly hardening the superglue into its plastic form upon contact. This plug holes, seals gaps, and it has high durability. So using the medium glue, apply just a tiny little dab right at the end of the holes. Add a baking soda and make the surface intact by slightly pressing on it using a cloth or any material you prefer. Wait for a few seconds to dry. Then all done! You may want to test your plastic for leakage by pouring water in it.
