Sew Stray Buttons On When Doing Laundry

contest winner icon

When I'm doing the laundry, I keep a threaded needle in the cupboard above the washer so I can sew buttons back on clothes as soon as I find they came off in the washer or dryer. I used to keep wayward buttons and such in a jar and sew them on later but sometimes I would never get around to it. This way it's done right away.

This is a wonderful idea! At least you know the job will be done right away..

To keep them from coming off again dab some clear nail polish on the threads on the back and top of the button once you sew it on.
