    I have the tool also. You can get them at walmart or anywhere. If you get one, make sure it has multiple tips to accomodate different sized crystals. You can only use it if the back (flat side) has the glue already on it when you buy them. The tool heats the glue.

    I used them on my capri's 3 years ago and wash them every week; they are still on!

    Oh, you can also use an iron with those pre glued crystals.

    I used to put the larger Sworavoski crystals on things and used *Jewel Glue by Delta*. It bonded really well, but I'm partial to the hot stick crystals that you use the tool with. Not nearly as messy!

    Allene's Jewel-It is the best. I put some crystals on a tee shirt several years ago and can't even count how many times it has been washed and dried, and they are still holding tight.

    I use Goop 6000, it's good for what you need. Whatever you use, make sure the item does not go inoto the drier when washed.

    Any and all glues melt in a high temp drier.
