If you’ve ever lost the drawstring on your favourite hoodie, gym shorts or sweatpants, you know it’s not easy to shove that thing back in there. Reddit user zjbird offers up a nifty solution using a straw and a stapler.All you need to do is thread the string into the straw, staple it, then push it back through the hood or waistband or your favourite clothes. We’ve seen ideas like using a pen or coat hanger before, but neither of those offer the flexibility of the straw. The bonus is that you won’t have to deal with a coat hanger poking through the fabric or pen marks everywhere.
