Ever realized how hard it'd be not to get your feet wet, especially on rainy days when you have to head out and shop for groceries, then go home and have to deal with soggy socks? That's because your rain boots have been torn in some places! Well, look no further than this simple solution: repairing holes in your rubber wellies with hot glue and duct tape! You don't even have to go to the store and spend a fortune on a new pair!

Step 1: What You'll Need

To repair your rain boots, first you will need a hot glue gun and some duct tape. And, of course, your rain boots with any rips and tears!

Step 2: Glue Down Any Holes

I recently found some rips in my rain boots, and so, the easiest way to repair them is with a generous amount of hot glue so it will stay in place. You can also, if it sounds easier for you, use E6000 adhesive, since both glues have a strong bond.

Step 3: Finish Off

Now, you can seal your newly fixed rain boots with a few small strips of duct tape.

Step 4: Good As New

Now, you're set to walk in the rain with your newly repaired wellies!
