AFTER CHRISTMAS - LIGHTS CLEANUP AND STORAGE TIP
One of the harder parts of using strings of lights to decorate for christmas is untangleing the lights that were not carefully put away the previous year.
Here is a helpful tip for storing and cleaning up strings of christmas lights that my wife heared from a co-worker.
|String of minilights removed from tree.||Lay one end on an old magazine and roll magazine up.|
the cord across the outside of the rolled up magazine.
Wrap, Wrap, Wrap
|Wrap||As you approach the end of the string, slow wrapping to a stop.|
|Plug ends together. (1 end inside roll,other end wrapped)||One string done!|
