Test It Tuesday: Flex Seal

Posted: Updated:

Test It Tuesday is back by popular demand.

We've ordered a slew of new products to test over the next four weeks to see if they live up to the hype.

This week, we test Flex Seal, also known as liquid rubber in a can.

We tried Flex Seal on three kitchen products, three different surfaces, and one goal; to stop the leaks.

We used a strainer, a blue cup with a crack down the side, and a container with holes punched through the bottom.

If it can't pass these simple tests: buyer beware!

Directions:

1. Shake can for one minute.

2. Spray using an even sweeping motion

3. Spray a larger area than where the leak occurred and feather edges.

Flex Seal comes out as a nice glob of black gunk.

Whatever you're spraying HAS to be dry in order to Flex Seal to work.

The directions do not indicate a 'dry time' but we let our testers dry for four hours.

The final result?

The water didn't leak through any of our products.

Flex Seal was able to repair the minor cracks and holes.

The product was a little bit messy and will stick to whatever you spray, including your skin.

I did a lot of research about Flex Seal and people had mixed reviews.  Some people loved it and some didn't.

No two cracks are alike, but if you're looking for a temporary fix, Flex Seal just might be your product.

Flex Seal costs between $15-$20 depending on where you buy it.
