There are so many aspects of doing laundry that just grate our nerves. The chore itself is not the most pleasant, then add to that having to disentangle your socks and pant legs afterwards.
Also, there's the fact that your hoodie string has somehow found its way out of its loop.
So, your new chore begins- restringing your clothes. But who wants to waste minutes or hours doing that, when, with only two items, you can get it done in record time?
There are quite a few hacks in this particular area. However, what we are going for here is something that will take as little time as possible.
This method is much faster than when you use a safety pin. All you need to get this done is a straw and a stapler. And yes, this trick will help you complete the task in seconds.
- Step 1: Insert one end of the drawstring into the straw. Give about half an inch beyond the aglet (this is the plastic/ metal that covers the tip of laces).
- Step 2: Staple through the cotton drawstring.
- Step 3: Fix your straw into your loop and push through the 'tunnel' of your hoodie. As you move, smoothen the fabric to make this go much faster. Keep going until the straw gets to the eyelet on the other side.
- Step 4: Once your straw is out, you can gently remove the staple from the drawstring.
If you don't have a stapler or you'd rather not use the trick above, then you can try an awesome one which only requires a clothes hanger.
- Step 1: Unhook the hanger so you have one straight metal wire.
- Step 2: Fold one end of the hanger at the tip to create a clip for the drawstrings.
- Step 3, Insert the drawstring snugly in the space and push to the eyelet of your hoodie.
- Step 4: Push through until you're out on the other side. Then remove the drawstring.
- Step 5: Keep pushing in the same direction until the hanger makes its way out.
Pick and choose either one of the methods above and you'll save yourself minutes every time you need to restring your clothes.
