We have just finished a week of cleaning and purging here at Sprout's House, and already the house feels lighter and brighter. The sitting room was one of the last rooms I tackled, and I nearly lost the will when I noticed this...
Eek....double eek in fact! It was a tangle of wires along with layer upon layer of dust!
Here's how to tame those unruly wires with some washi tape.
Remove equipment that you no longer use . Out went the Freesat box—no reason to keep dusting something you don't use!
Switch off and unplug all the equipment, dust the flexes, then wrap a piece of washi tape around each cable at the plug end. Label the washi tape so that you know which plug belongs to which piece of equipment.
Wrap a small piece of washi tape around the cables that connect the boxes to the TV and each other, so it is easy to identify which wire belongs to which box.
And ta-dah! You're done.
Here's to quick tasks that help tidy things up!
What five-minute tricks do you have up your sleeve to help you tidy?
