The blue bumper fell off while I was cleaning it. What's the best adhesive for putting it back on?

use rubbing alcohol to remove all the gunk and old glue on both sides, then use contact cement to re-stick.

Contact cement, but make sure you clean both surfaces first to remove old adhesive.

Do what Bryan F'n Kelly says

Very true, but if you want it done now, go to the hardware store and buy the contact cement (you'll find other uses for it around the house) and some denatured alcohol. The alcohol is used to clean off the old adhesive and again, you'll find other uses for it around the house.

I really like this stuff for bonding plastics, metal, or glass.

Thanks everyone - it's great to see a clear consensus on pinside!

I replace those bumper things with weather stripping. Seems to hold up well and doesn't rub off on the ball.
