What is a bike tire boot?
In the broadest sense, a tyre boot is anything you put inside a tyre to cover up the section with the hole in left by a nasty puncture, thus protecting the tube. This can be almost anything, from a dedicated vinyl membrane tyre boot, to a fiver, to an energy gel wrapper, to a chopped up bit of an old tyre.
What is a bike tire lever?
These handy tools can help remove or install even the most stubborn of bike tires. They could easily damage the tube, tire, or worse, the rim. Tire levers are designed specifically for removing and installing tires without damaging anything in the process, so stick with those to be safe.
What household items can I use to patch a bike tube?
Here are your household items options:

What glue is used in a puncture repair kit?
The best solution to this extraordinarily irritating problem is to use a can or jar of vulcanizing rubber cement for most repairs and to reserve the single-use tube of cement for emergencies. Specifically: Ride with a spare inner tube and a patch kit (with an unopened tube of rubber cement).
Do puncture repair kits work bike?
Re: Do puncture repair kits actually work? They certainly work a lot better than those self-adhesive patches do. I consider it prudent to put the repaired tube in the wheel, so it can be proven to hold air, rather than packing it away as an untrustworthy spare.
