Going back 60 years Pa use to use something called 'plastic skin' to seal up cuts on me. Was just a clear liquid, did not sting but stopped the bleeding. Sounds like super glue is the 21st century plastic skin.

Plastic skin is still widely used. It is just a seal for abrasions, minor cuts etc to keep out infection. Just like more efficient waterproof band aids. It will not bring together and repair cuts like super glue.

I am very surprised by the number of people with a long history of using super glue on themselves - and their cows. It certainly is multi use stuff.

I believe superglue was invented as a medical adhesive for use in the Viet conflict, as has been mentioned.
All other uses were peripheral.

The incredibly stable adhesive known as Super Glue ™ was invented by accident in 1942 by Dr. Harry Coover. Today the substance is somewhat of a household necessity, with uses ranging from simple woodworking and appliance repair to industrial binding and medical applications.

Here is Harry Coover's Super Glue story. His employer Kodak Eastman brought it to the market.

Damned if I'm going to take up smoking again to fix some parts. Baking soda is already in the pantry ready for future use.

Try Baking Soda in the dishwasher instead of the expensive tablets.

I was amazed at how well it cleans the dishes.

If I think of it I will try this with the steering wheel I’m about to repair. Looks like it would do the trick for what I’m wanting. I already have some kneading paste but will see what works better. Thanks for sharing.

I have succesfully repaired 2 steering wheels using the Need-It putty then sprayed painted it using a can of epoxy paint. Looking at the baking soda and glue you will need a lot of that mix.
