When you empty a roll of scotch tape or packaging tape take that hard cardboard or plastic ring and slip it over the plug end to your iron, sewing machine or other electric appliance that the cord is permanently attached. If the ring is too small to get over the end, slice through the ring and slip the cord through the slice.
When not in use, you can simply fold the extra cord through the ring for storage. The ring will stay on the cord when you are using the appliance, and be there for you to use over and over.
