I can't tell you how many times I've spent hours gluing flat back PLAIN (not hot fix) rhinestones to something that promised it was a permanent bond, and I then spent some frustrating time getting the rhinestones out of the bottom of a washer after washing normally and retrieving more from the dryer after the formerly glitzed up garment took a spin in dry heat. BTW, the best way to vacuum them up for any occasion (and I've had a lot of experience with that) even after a spill in your craft area is to cut off about a foot of the bottom of panty hose, attach it firmly over the end of a vacuum preferably with duct tape--I am never without my roll of duct tape even at work-- making sure that the sock end goes into the hose when the vacuum is turned on about 4 to 5 inches, and turn it on. This trick works with all kinds of things including spilled pins.This will suck them all up and catch them in the sock without having to dig them out of the central vacuum canister in the garage or having to empty the dust catcher to sort them from the crud in a regular vacuum.Also, to get them out of the dryer's lint collector area, you'll have to put the panty hose on the hose end and then anchor it in place with the vacuum's crevice tool--works great on my maytag.
After about 4 or five horrible failures with Fabric Tac which Craft Warehouse practically guaranteed would do the job, E6000, Lock Tite multiple use glue, Quick grab, 827 or something like that and a couple others, I happened on this stuff. It worked better than anything else. Just make sure the dab or line you put on the fabric will come out around the edges of the rhinestone. If even a teensy edge is uncovered, it might come off.It works best if all edges are anchored down. Put something--like a sheet of teflon, baking parchment or a silicone oven liner inside of the garment to make sure the glue doesn't soak through and glue the back to the front! Leave that in there during the entire drying process.
Also, DO NOT turn the garment inside out to wash it. Even after this glue is cured, it will become sticky in the washer (and will turn a bit white when wet)and it will stick to itself bothin the washer and dryer. However, when I pulled it apart after each step, the stones stayed in place. I also would recommend putting any glitzed and glued or hot-fixed garment into a lingerie bag when in both the washer and dryer. Just leave the gemmed side turned outward.I even rolled it around a couple of hand towels. Then if any stones happen to fall off you can easily retrieve them without a sock, a vacuum and duct tape.
I paid special attention to the directions. Let your garment "cure" for at least the 24 hours. 48 is even better. You might even consider putting it in a food dehydrator to really get it bone dry for 8 hours or more.. I rolled mine up loosely around a hand towel making sure the stones were OUTSIDE so the glue couldn't stick to itself when wet in the washer or hot in the dryer and placed it in a lingerie bag-- with small enough holes so even the smallest rhinestone couldn't escape.
When I removed it from the lingerie bag, only about 4 of the several hundred had fallen off, which I quickly replaced making sure that the glue completely squeeched out around the outside edge of the stone. No problem whatsoever after that. I do not blame the glue for the lost stones as I may not have put enough glue on them to anchor them properly. Considering that my last experience with glue of another brand was that the garment was almost devoid of stones after washing and drying, this was a VAST improvement and darn near perfect for my purpose. I was gluing them to a t-shirt by the way, so make sure that the shirt is washed a couple times to remove the fixative, and also I would Iron the area that will be decorated just to make sure that the fabric is flat and do not use a stabilizer spray or starch before working with the ironed garment, This glue is the closest to perfect that I've found and I've got an arsenal of glues that make the same claim of permanently bonding rhinestones to fabric and don't deliver!
So I tried this stuff to glue some crystals to a lamp shade and was very glad I did. It dries clear, has the consistency of elmers and if it drips where I dont want it, cleanup is easy and not as urgent as with the cement adhesive. But also keep in mind, my gluing requirements are relatively 'tame' compared to someone making jewelry or crystals/stones to clothing.
It may work just as strong and long as the cement does, I don't know. I do know you get a good quantity at a great price and when it dries, there is no residue or stiffness in fabric.
Again, I was well pleased!
