Secure Draw String Before Washing

Before washing clothes which have a drawstring at the waist (or anywhere for that matter), stitch across it down the middle of the back. If you don't sew, a safety pin will do the trick. I had many of those drawstrings and cords to get pulled back into the opening, before I started doing this. I haven't had a problem since.

I have several pairs of lounge pants that have both elastic and a drawstring in them. What I do is make a slip knot in one side of the drawstring and attach the other side in it and pull the knot tight and walla my string can't get inside the waist band anymore when its laundered. If you've ever had to fish one of these out you know what I mean.
