Velcros are wonderful things!!! Little hooks they are...

But how long can a velcro live, until it no longer sticks?

An average velcro.. What is it's life-expectancy?

I've always found the biggest problem to be wool or hair getting stuck to the Velcro thus stopping it from working properly. I don't think Velcro itself actually wears out (or passes away).

Ah yes.. When hair or wool gets stuck in it, and it's hard to take out...


I think velcro might not work, if the hooks are pulled straight.. If you keep putting it on and off and on and off, eventually the hooks will start opening, more straight...
