Adhesive to glue foam cushions together?

Hi all-
I just removed the covers off the cushions to wash them. I found out the one cushion was actually in two pieces - it had been glued together. What can I use on foam to adhere the two pieces back together again?

I would try a contact adhesive in spray form.

Whatever route you go, be sure to test the glue in a small spot to make sure the foam does not melt or disintegrate due to chemicals in the glue.

Contact Glue

3M Super 77 spray adhesive. As Jim suggested try a small area first. I use it frequently on rigid foam without any problems.

Thanks!

I had some 3M "Sprayment" - a craft and adhesive spray that could be used on foam - BUT DARN! - Found out I was down to the bottom. On my scamp group they suggested to go to an upholster shop and they would glue it back together with special stuff they have or try rubber cement on a test spot - I will look into all of your advice -

GREAT TIP I PICKED UP: when trying to put the covers back on the foam, put garbage bags over them and the covers will slide right over the foam, instead of struuuuuugling (like I just did!)
