Got messy cords? Organize them with this simple hack
No more tangled messes! TODAY

Follow the steps below and you'll find yourself asking how you ever lived without this trick.

1. Pick up some foam pipe insulation.

2. Trim the insulation to the length of your wrapped cord.

3. Insert the folded cord into the tubing and you'll have a tangle-free solution for re-packing.

4. Use an old shoe box to keep everything together and organized.

If you want to keep it really simple, you can also use an old toilet paper dowel or paper towel roll instead of pipe insulation.

You can even use this trick to organize corded appliances, like hair dryers and curling irons. Simply wrap the corded end into the insulation tube and store. Your bathroom will be an organized paradise in no time!
