My husband asked me if I was running out of things to organize when he saw this project. First, did he really think I was going to run out of things to organize? But in all seriousness, I hate the way cords tend to get in the way.

This quick and easy Fast Fix Friday simply requires a ‘cordy’ appliance and velcro! (I used this one, which comes in white OR black and can be easily cut to fit perfectly.)

Make sure your appliance is clean before attaching any velcro on it. I just spray a little all purpose cleaner and wipe off with a paper towel.

Then wrap the cord around the appliance as you normally would. Add a piece of velcro on to the plug-in and the other to the appliance, avoiding any spots that could be warm when plugged in.

Note that I only use velcro on appliances that heat up IF there’s a part of the appliance that stays cool while plugged in (such as my curlers).  I get nervous that the velcro may start on fire, so I skip this for things like my crock pot and straightener.

May tangled cord now be a thing of your past!

    Definitely one of those, “why didn’t I think of that” ideas. Thanks. I recently used Velcro to keep the sensor stuck in place to the top of the tv (still have an old analog set)
