    Your mobile charger cord getting unruly? Then wrap it round a pencil, tightly as you feel, then heat it with a hairdryer on a moderate heat for a minute or so. Voila, you've got one of those curly cord wires that can be pulled on without excess movement. I imagine you could scale it up to your kettle to if you're worried about kids pulling on it, also would probably be handy for mouse wires that are excessively long

    Thank you :-)

    I don't have this problem, Neil, so I won't be trying it. And besides, couldn't you cause damage to the cord by subjecting it to that kind of heat?

    Is this tip one that you've read or seen somewhere or is it one that you've made up yourself?

    I am not going to listen to a neilold tip about blowing wires with a hair dryer. You try it Neil and see if you blow up

    I have tried in and it works a treat. Like i said, only moderate heat, and only for a short period. The cord doesn't get hot enough to melt. I'm also gonna try it on my PS4 charger leads as I sit close to the telly and it stops the wires getting tangled or tripped over
