Electrical Wire for Shoe Laces

Find that store-bought shoelaces get utterly destroyed and dirty? Once you need new ones, try using old (insulated) electrical wiring. Just cut the connection off of either end and voila! Shoelace.


If you don't have any spare cords that are thin enough, try Goodwill. I picked up an AV cable, which can be ripped apart into three "shoelaces," for $1. Comes in a variety of colors and keeps that stuff out of the landfill!

For extra style points, wrap some electrical tape around the ends of the wire once it's laced. A drop of Super Glue will keep the tape from coming off.
