The next time the tip comes off one of your shoelaces, dip the unprotected end of string in melted paraffin and shape it to a point before the wax hardens.
By Ron from Cortez, CO
Alright, mommies out there. Since I have an 8 year old boy, shoelaces are my problem. At this age, they are very active on playing, running, and activities at school. Sometimes, the tip of the shoelace will get split and it's hard to get it inserted into the holes of the shoes.
The tip I want to share to you is to use Scotch tape. Cut a piece and roll it on the split tip of the shoelace. Then it will be easy to insert it into the hole of the shoes.
