This article of bungee cord hacks includes links I have been paid to include but all opinions are my own.
I love finding random hacks to use in the home. While I don’t often put them into practice they are fun to look at don’t you think? Today I have been looking at hacks with bungee cords, you know those long springy rope type things.
Some of these ideas I thought were ingenious so I wanted to share them with you. They made me tempted to instead of buying a pack of ready made cords with hooks on the end to buy a whole roll of the stuff and hooks to make my own at the exact lengths I need. Bungee cord is truly an amazing product with so many fun uses!
Bungee cord hacks
For the car boot
Threading a piece of bungee cord through all your shopping bag handles and clipping at each side or to head rests makes sure nothing spills out. A really easy way of keeping your car book and shopping well organised.
For the cupboard under the sink
Instead of having endless bottles and sprays under the sink simply clip bungee cord to each side and hook on your spray bottles. You could also use some to hold a roll of bin bags. Once you start finding uses for it under the sink you wont stop!
Keeping bin bags secure
Wrapping a bungee cord and securing the ends together tight enough to stop the bag falling into the bin. This easy hack saves you fishing in the bin for the bag if it slides in.
Bungee cord as a shelf barrier
Do you have a cupboard or fridge shelf that is always full and trying to escape? Bungee cord can be used to carefully secure them in making a stretchy but firm barrier.
A few carefully placed bungee cords can be a great way of securing footballs in an area of your shed or garage. Balls can then be easily removed one at a time without the whole lot rolling everywhere!
Store cables easily in the shed or garage
Hook a length of bungee cord around a rolled up cable for the lawnmower, pressure washer etc and then hook up easily onto a hook or nail into the wall. Smaller cords can be used to secure cables and charger wires in the home in a similar way.
Teddy bear storage
Ben has so many soft toys it is unreal. He never wants to get rid of them so this is a hack I am definitely going to use. Secure bungee cords across a shelf to stuff soft toys behind. They will still be visible and
unfortunately still collect dust but they will stay on the shelf easily!
What other items are great for hacks?
There are so many uses for random items like this. I love duct tape and blue tack and use them for so much. What are your go to items that help with hacks, fixing things or just generally you could not live without?
