15 Handy DIY Hacks – VELCRO® Brand Dots And More
Do you ever find yourself struggling to keep things organised in your home? Perhaps you’re tired of constantly slipping and sliding around on loose rigs or finding that items are falling off of surfaces? Or maybe you have curious young children who constantly move things around? The good news is that there are some handy DIY hacks you can try that can help you keep things in place. In this blog post, we’ll introduce you to 15 different DIY hacks that you can try, and we’ll also introduce you to the VELCRO® Brand range of products available at MPD Hook & Loop that can help you accomplish your DIY dreams.
What exactly are VELCRO® Brand Dots?
Velcro is a type of material that can be used to hold two sides together. One side has multiple ‘hooks’ while the other side has hundreds of ‘loops’ which you will see if you look closely at the material. When the two sides come into contact with each other, the hooks cling onto the loops and make them stick together.The more hooks and loops that are attached to the material, the stronger the hold will be.
Why Should I Use VELCRO® Brand Dots for DIY purposes?
Easy to Use
Whether you are out and about or in the comfort of your own home, self adhesive VELCRO® Brand Dots do not require anything but basic motor skills in order to operate. It’s kid friendly and a great substitute for children who do not know how to do more complex tasks that require more complex understanding. VELCRO® Brand Dots just simply need to be pulled apart requiring a little force to separate the hooks from the loops.
Another great thing about VELCRO® Brand Dots is that they don’t require upkeep or maintenance. There is very little loss of efficiency between each removal of the hooks from the loops. This means you can seal and rip apart the fabric as many times as you like without having to worry that you will have to replace the fasteners. The only thing you have to do is occasionally remove stray threads that may have feathered in the hooks from elsewhere.
Even though VELCRO® Brand Dots have so many uses, they are actually an inexpensive product. They do not cost much to buy and rarely need to be replaced as they do not deteriorate. Therefore they are a low cost solution for use around your home.
VELCRO® Brand Dots can be used just about anywhere in the home! Their uses are wide ranging – from upholstery projects like sealing cushions together to hanging pictures on the wall of rented accommodation, there’s so many different ways self adhesive VELCRO® Brand Dots can be used.
