Default What glue for bow flipflops?

I made 20 bow flips flops last week using high temp hot glue...ALL the bows can be pulled off really easily!!! So disappointing since I spent soooo much time on them! What glue do you us? Am I just not using the right hot glue? I get mine from Walmart - is there a better brand somewhere else???

TIA!

I'm sure E6000 could probably be used. They also sell a flip flop glue in some of the craft stores by all the flip flop "bling". IDK if it works either though. Probably no help. LoL Sorry!

Doesn't the E6000 smell really bad? I have a five month old... But I guess I can make flipflops outside with it!

I use E6000 for my flip flops and LOTS of other stuff. Yup it STINKS. I would suggest using it outside if possible...I don't but it's one of those "Do as I say not as I do" type things LOL. I also don't have children in my home anymore...all of mine are grown and on their own.

Surely there is an alternative to the E6000. If you use that stuff you should use a respirator mask. If it is that toxic it could case liver damage. Definitly loose a few brain cells.
