Can You Actually Fix a Car Bumper With Ramen Noodles?


Remember that viral social media video of a man fixing a broken sink with Ramen Noodles? Yeah, what the heck? What did I put in my body for four years straight? This was 40% of my diet in college. I mean, I know instant noodles probably aren't healthy, but why are noodles that strong? This viral video really has me thinking.

I hope that there isn't a pit of Ramen Noodles just waiting to form a porcelain sink in my stomach. Seriously, check out this video. It gets worse and worse. He fixed a table and a bowl with it. I'm all for DIY projects, but do not put me in an uncomfortable situation where I have to google, "What are Ramen Noodles made out of?" Check out this YouTube video from South China Morning Post. (He even uses the seasoning packet). Jeez.

There is a theory that this handyman actually swaps out the ramen for other supplies. Who knows? Another DIY video surfaced social media platforms of a 'Ramen fix' on a broken toilet.


Honestly, at this point, I don't know if I'm more weirded out that Ramen Noodles can fix cracked sinks and toilets or that people were like, "Yeah man, I'm not even worried about getting a brand new sink. I have plenty of instant Ramen Noodles to fix this."

What's next? DIY teeth fillings with a pack of Ramen noodles? I don't have any broken household items right now, but if I did I think I'd give the Ramen fix a try for laughs. I mean, the worse that could happen is that the guy who has to carry your old sink out of your home is just going to notice Ramen Noodles stuck to your sink.

I'm sure most handymen have seen worse. So what are you thinking? I don't want to be gullible, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is real. Maybe Ramen is the key to fixing car dents. See for yourself!
