Patching a bicycle tube

If a patch will not stick to the tube, apply more glue and let it dry completely — about 5 minutes. Don’t blow on the glue to try and make it dry quicker — this can leave moisture from your breath on it, which hinders the adhesion. When applying the patch avoid touching its sticky side with your fingers.
