Our Daily Green has touted the joys of shopping thrift many times in the past. We love to find a bargain and hate paying full price for clothing. One thing that occasionally thwarts us is when we find clothing that needs minor repairs. As "green" as repairing clothing should be, it's just not our talent. Yet, it's tough to resist a comfortable pair of slacks or a like-new hoodie, for example, because it is missing a drawstring.
We had the opportunity to review EZstringer. It's possibly the simplest gadget imaginable. It's a round plastic hoop that helps guide and rethread drawstrings. As demonstrated in the photo, it really is as easy as it looks.
We never actually thought we'd be singing the praises of something "as seen on TV", but also reluctantly admit to always wondering IF indeed, those gadgets were as effective as they seemed. In this case, it was.
After trying the EZStringer on a set of lovely flowing black viscose slacks, (that were unwearable without the drawstring as they would have flowed to the ankles), we are thrilled to report that we were able to restring the drawstring through the waistband. We had tried several other methods, safety pins, scrunching the fabric, etc. with no success. Until we received this product, the slacks sat in our drawer, waiting for another moment of patience to attempt a restringing.
If you are a thrift shopper, or simply a clothing repair challenged person, Our Daily Green recommends checking out the EZStringer, which is on sale for only $9.98. A special thank you to my friends who also helped me test out this fine product!
