    yet another trick for Elmer's School Glue!

    I have a couple of blouses that are sort of seersucker fabric that will not hold a rolled-up sleeve cuff, even with ironing the roll-up in place. To the rescue: anchored it with School Glue -- it holds the rolled-up cuff in place perfectly and washes out completely!

    good tip made me think if your hem comes undone on your way out the door it would probably work for a quick fix

    Very clever tip I have several blouses with fold up sleeves that won't stay up. I know how to fix that now, thanks to you!

    I've got several blouses that won't hold the cuff up, so off with the glue. Thanks for the tip.

    Thanks for sharing. Also saw where Walmart has their school supplies out. Got extra school glue (washable for myself and my DGKids). Also got couple extra for donation for those who can't afford supplies.
