Default Glued for Good

How do you know when that is the glue to use for bow life? I have been testing different types of glue and this is what I realised

1. UHU - small yellow tube. Easy to apply. Low vapour irritant - Doesn't hold well at all! It is all nice and neat, but when I yanked the ribbon, it comes off! Ugh.
2. High temp glue sticks from art and craft stores - Cheap! - As lousy as it is cheap. Dries super quick, lumpy (my clippies looks like toadies). Bonds a wee bit better than UHU, but still will come off.
3. High temp glue sticks from hardware store - Slightly more pricy, but seems to hold everything together better than the others. I had to use quite a bit of force to remove if I were to glue the wrong stuff together.

Are there glues out there that holds like cement? Should I be using one with a "death grip"? What is your benchmark in deciding which is the best glue for the job? I would like to try E6000, but I gotta wait till after my pregnancy cos the vapours are apparently harmful to health.

I am worried that babies may chew buttons and stuff off.

I use E-6000. You can get it almost anywhere, Walmart, michaels, HL etc.... I think this is the best I have used so far. It takes a full 24 hrs to cure and you have to make sure that the ribbon is straight on your clippies before you set them aside because the glue will still be moveable. It does have a very strong smell, so make sure you are in a well ventilated area. HTH.

I use a high temp glue gun and I sometimes use e6000. I don't use any buttons or anything on my baby bows. I put lots of choking hazard warnings on everything. In my opinon the bows should only be worn by infants with adult supervision. It's in the parents hands after they buy it but I try.

Oh! I never thought about that but it is so true.

Are you using Ad Tech glue sticks?
