3 Wine Cork Hacks for Travelers
You'll want to save those #WineWednesday corks.
Happy #WineWednesday. We love any excuse to pop open a bottle (or two). If you're indulging this Wednesday, save your corks! There are so many unique crafts you can make with wine corks, from trivets, coasters and push pin boards and more, but did you know wine corks can help you pack smarter, too?
Losing an earring while traveling is the worst because if it's gone, it's gone forever. There's not that chance that it will turn up three weeks later in between the couch cushions or on the bathroom floor at home. That's why it's important to have them securely packed in one place. To achieve this packing hack, remove the backs of studded earrings and stick the earrings in a wine cork like push pins.
A pair of headphones also falls into the category of pesky yet essential packing items. To avoid constantly untangling headphones when you go to listen to music, simply stick the end into one side of the cork and wrap the entire strand until secure.
Keeping a phone charger neatly coiled is also difficult, but a wine cork can help. To create a cord keeper, drill two holes at each end of the cork. String elastic cord through the holes, tying a small knot at each end. Gather the phone cord and secure with elastic band. No more tangled phone charger!
