How to patch inflatable mattress

If your inflatable mattress has a hole one option is to repair rather than throw away. You’ll need a puncture repair kit. Just follow these steps.

  1. Identify where the whole is, this may be obvious if you can hear air rushing out. If not, try putting the mattress in the bath and look for air bubbles.
  2. Clean the area around the hole, use chalk or the sandpaper in the puncture repair kit to rough the area to help the patch stick
  3. Apply glue and stick the patch
  4. Place pressure on the patch, if possible leave a¬†heavy book on the patch, be careful it doesn’t stick so place some paper below the book.
  5. Inflate the mattress after waiting if possible a good 12 to 24 hours to test if the leak has gone.
