3) Remove gum

4) Hoodie strings gone astray
Usually, if you make a few knots at the ends of the string of a hoodie, it is less likely for it get lost through those holes. However, if it comes loose in the wash, there are a few ways to rescue it!

Another way is that you can attach a safety pin to one end (gives you something hard to grip through the fabric), and use your fingers to guide it through the channel.
5) Clever zipper solution
