So many times, a small hole or a puncture ruins a perfectly good cup, mug, bucket, vase, etc. Hot glue from a hot glue gun is the easiest and most perfect way to repair it. Just dab a drop of hot glue over the puncture or hole and wait for it to cool. Voila, it's waterproof!

What is the best way to repair a tiny hole in a plastic container? I use a soft plastic pliable container for washing hair in the bed for my husband who is handicapped. I can't seem to figure the best way to seal the hole. Help!
Try Super Glue. Fill the hole with glue and let it dry thoroughly. When dry apply a drop or so on both sides of the hole.
It might work to use a just-spent match with enough heat left to touch to the plastic surrounding the hole, melting the plastic enough to seal the hole. I'd place the plastic with hole area over a non-flammable surface to hold it flat and steady. It might take several tries if you use a burned match.
There are patches available for vinyl swimming poolspr vinyl liners for ponds in your yard. You may be able to find one on the internet or at a local store that sells these products. You might be able to get a local store to give you a "sample".
Duct tape, especially the clear "package tape" stuff! Cut off a strip long enough to completely cover the hole, press it really well, and see how that goes.
Hi, could you perhaps put a plastic bag inside the container?
