Re-waterproof your brollie with El
What you'll need Hairspray
How to do it
When your brollie loses its waterproofing, simply spray on some cheap hairspray to seal it again. Does it work on outdoor clothing too?
The tip is from the channel 4 series in case youre wondering
Thank you in anticipation

My wife and I saw that programme, and have doubts about the method. We reckoned that some cheap hairsprays will remain tacky, some will brush off too easily. In the past, I've used Thompsons Water Seal on umbrellas and canvas shoes, applied generously with a paintbrush. Works a treat - tho' it takes a couple of days to dry out and lose its odour!

Fishing tackle shops sell a silicone spray for waterproofing Brollies. (or used to years ago!)
Lidl does a waterproofing spray for clothing, shoes etc. for £1.99. Why use something not designed for the purpose?
yeah and save hairspray for what its really for.... spraying on spiders and finding them the next day all stiff and crispy and dead......
pdust, I'm ashamed of you!!
Don't be Maidup, she should be ashamed of herself.
what??? they make great false eyelashes.... its not like im wasting em or anything.....
Do you know the story of Prophet Muhammad, salallahu aleihi wa salaam, and Abu Bakr, radiallahu anhu, when they left Makkah to go to Madinah? The enemies of Islam sent some people to look for them in the desert. When they came to the cave where the Prophet, salallahu aleihi wa salaam, was hiding, they found that a dove had built a nest in front of the cave and a spider had spun its web across the entrance. Because of this, the people thought that no-one could be in the cave and they left and looked further.

Next time you see a spider, instead of killing it, think of how a spider helped to save the life of the Prophet
yeah i know the story jom and regardless of that i shouldnt kill spiders but i just cant stand them in the house
So put them outside then, they won't bite you ( no guarantee though :-))
the size of some of them they would eat me never mind bite me!
sorry hettster x
I would look out an old and beat up garment and try it out on that.
