I know this sounds pathetic, but I really need to know how to patch up a hole in a balloon. I have this flour-filled “squishy balloon doll” I use as a stress reliever, but I’ve gotten way too attached to it and I don’t want to throw it away. It’s one of those balloon things with the google-eyes and string hair attached to it. Now there’s a hole in it, and it’s slowly leaking out flour.
The hole’s really tiny. Only about the size of a pinprick. Any ideas? Glue, maybe? I’m not going to mess around with it anymore since it’s fragile now; I just want it around.
I’d try using a bit of rubbery glue first, like E6000 perhaps. That will be a bit flexible when dry (which would be better than non-flexible glues), and also stronger than some other glues. Or you could try one of the tube glues (from a hardware store) that’s *made for* rubber, etc** You’d need to be sure that any glue you use wouldn’t have a solvent in it that attacks rubber though.
If that didn’t work you could try a patch. The patch could be something small (fabric or other) saturated with E6000/for-rubber glue, or just held on with it , or perhaps be a small piece of rubber balloon, or perhaps use a “patch kit” for vinyl toys, air mattresses, etc.
Depending on where the hole is, you could pull it up enough to tie a knot in it too…could look funny but would keep the hole closed.

yet another question responded by making use of those with little or no clue. first of all, why interior the international might anybody put in a towel bar made up of %? So, human beings come on your bathing room and it screams, lower priced lower priced lower priced! since the uncomplicated bathing room redesign runs close to $10K, why might you do this? Secondly, a towel, even a moist one isn’t heavy adequate to desire a stud. Sorry, yet spectacular put in, a towel bar will do basically effective in case you connect interior the direction of the drywall. Sorry to return in the time of as a jerk, yet those of you who suggested this are basically incorrect. I do bathing room remodels for a living, i’m solid at it , and that i’ve got on no account been called lower back to a house for a towel bar coming off the wall. till you could journey those credentials, then you definitely will not be able to disagree. this is a thank you to unravel this. first of all, use some spackle to repair the present holes. it may desire to desire a pair of coats of spackle. Sand it mushy, top, and repaint. in case you will see the indentations from the holes after priming, spackle and sand lower back and do the entire technique over. this ought to in undemanding terms take an afternoon or 2 on the main. next, pass to living house Depot, Lowes, or comparable or your community ironmongery shop and get some screw in wall anchors. they are made up of plastic, have a drill auger on the tip and as quickly as the auger gets interior the direction of the drywall, the anchor then has large threads that screw immediately into the drywall. the only thank you to do this spectacular is to apply a drill/motive force or an effect motive force. whilst installation those anchors, pass the towel bar an inch or so far flung from the patch you made so which you’re screwing into new drywall, no longer the patch. 2 inches is even better. in case you are trying this, you will no longer have to any extent further issues. you could dangle planters off the ingredient.
Here is what you do…
get some laytex gloves (so super glue wont stick to you)..3 cutouts of paper about 1/2cm or smaller all around to cover the hole making a square. Super glue all those papers together but then immediately super glue those papers over the hole and put more super glue around it forming a sort of super glue shield and BAM!
Duct tape ftw
Try fevicol glue and a piece of paper
If you won’t be using it, anything should work fine. Sticky tape should do the job. (Not glue)
