Shoe laces. Mending shoestrings shoe laces

You can fix your shoe strings if they are nylon by taking a lighter to the ends and squeezing the warmed end in a wet rag, making the shoe string hard on the end and it will not unravel anymore. 

Dipping the end of a shoe string in clear nail polish will keep them from coming undone!

Scotch Tape... Comments By: ctuesday on 2010-01-31
I've always taken a small piece of scotch tape and wrapped the end very tight, it last a good long time and when it wears out...wrap again. Free and easy.
