    I was super lucky to receive this for free from #ChickAdvisor to try out and review. As someone of shorter stature most pants are too long for me and I do not sew. I was surprised about how many strips were included in the package for the price. Considering it is not bad and you can do multiple pants with one package. Although I don't feel this is a permanent solution I think it will do when your in a pinch and need a temporary solution. The were way more sticky and stuck to me a little bit even though I did moisten my fingers. Also I guess I didn't press hard enough on the first strip and it came up a bit when I took the top piece off. I just pressed again and it worked great.

    As an average-height person who has shorter-than-average legs and minimal sewing skills, this product will be helpful to hem all those pants that don't fit right off the rack! Instructions were easy to follow and I like the idea that this will hold forever! It's also appealing that a crisp hem can be preserved for dress pants. Not thrilled that they can only be washed in cold water and tumble dried on low (I normally wash in hot water to kill dust mites for allergies), but to save on the cost of tailoring, it's worth it. Thanks, Chick Advisor, for the free sample!

    I got to try this product for free from chick advisor. I am super impressed with this product. My husband always has frayed edges on his pant legs so I'm always having to hem them up to hid the fray. So when I received this product I knew exactly what to use it on. The process is super simple and the product does work really well. I do need to say that it is a two person job because the product is super sticky it's not easy to hold the sticky sheet and the folded pant up and to make sure you get the sticky sheets on the desired hem line. The product does stick extremely well and holds up through wash on cold. I recommend this to anyone who needs a easy fix it quick and simple.

    Received this product for free from chick advisor. This sample by far was my favourite in the samples. I don't like to sew and this was perfect for me. Instructions were simple and easy to follow. I was able to hem pants in no time. Product worked well and has held even after washing and ironing. I would definitely recommend to anyone who doesn't want the fuss of sewing. Already bought some to have in the house. Great product

    I received this free as part of Chick Advisor's Product Review Club. It definitely held down my pant hem. The tape is very sticky, so be sure that you've got it exactly where you want it, and avoid touching the sticky part with your hand because you'll have a very hard time getting it off again. I don't know how long it will hold up to washing and drying, but so far so good!

    I received these free to try and review. I definitely would recommend them. They had a bit of a learning curve for me. I lost the first strip in a war of the wills. My hands vs the sticky strip. But after the first one I got it down. They have held up really well so far through washing and drying. Time will tell but so far there are no signs of it letting go.

    I Love love love the permanent bonding strips! They adhere very well to any fabric (even chiffon) and worked very well on cotton pants that were too long but didn't want to cut the hem. I would recommend this product wholeheartedly as a great way to hem clothes without needing a sewing machine or knowing how to sew.

    Once you use the adjustable hem tape and find that perfect length. Permanent Hem will keep it where you like it. This is perfect for those who like to do their own hems.

    I am a big fan of quick fixes and not a fan of sewing or having to pay someone else to do it for me! I'm only 5'0 so everything of mine needs hemming. I used this product on a pair of dress pants that I was dying to wear, but didn't want to pay to have them hemmed. This product held up great, washed up great with the pants and everything! I would definitely recommend this product to purchase and I will be buying this again for more permanent fixes that I need! Love it!

    So a couple of months ago I took a pair on Roots Mantra pants to Stitch It for some hemming! I found that the pants were still a bit too long for me! I was constantly tugging them up throughout the day. I was excited when the Scotch Essentials Permanent Hem Bonding Strips arrived! This item was free as part of the Product Review Club. These bonding strips have done the trick! I have had absolutely no issues with it coming apart, have washed and it has still remained intact. LOVE IT. Now when it came to the application the strips are quite sticky. It's recommended that you wet your fingers before applying so they don't stick. I did this repeatedly for each strip. However lets just say I'm glad there were no children around when applying as there were some choice words. Would I purchase this again? Absolutely. In fact I think my days of having my pants tailored may just be over! Highly recommend!
