I bought four Thirsties Duo Wraps for $15ppd, two of them are in perfect condition and two have PUL issues. I figured even if I can't repair the two with issues, I still got an awesome deal!

Does anyone know if you can do a PUL patch? There are two very small spots where the PUL snagged and I'm sure we'll experience at least some amount of leaking/wicking in these spots. Any advice or ideas would be appreciated!!

I bet you could do the same kind of thing on the inside as is done behind embroideries. Or, if it teeny, a dab of clear nail polish or fabric glue? I had 2 Fuzzi Bunz seconds with tinyl holes from PUL snags, about the size of a pin head, and dabbed them with nail polish and never had any leaking/wicking.

Oooh, nail polish/fabric glue is a great idea! They really are teeny tiny holes, not quite a pin hole but just a bit bigger. I'll try that and see how it goes, thanks!

I ran a search before I posted but didn't find anything. I'll retry searching only Kelli's posts, maybe that will narrow it down more! Thanks!

I was able to repair some PUL holes on some of my FB dipes recently. All I did was get a small piece of PUL, put the shiney sides together and iron til it created a heat seal bond. So far so good!
