Drawstring Threader Product Opinion

Hi All,

I am a new mom to the site and i just recently came up with an idea to solve my most annoying problem. Every time I put one of the kids hoodies, or drawstring pants in the dryer, the drawstring always come out. I do not have the time or patience to try to work it back through, so I started thinking of an easy device that I could use to restring it. I used a 3 foot long plastic zip tie with a clip and the end, attached the drawstring to the clip and slid the smooth plastic through the fabric to the other hole, and when I could grab it, I pulled it out, which replaced the plastic with the drawstring. Since the idea, I am actually in the process of patenting, but before I go any further, I would like to get everyone's opinion.

Would this product help you?

Would you use this product?

Would you buy this product if you saw it in the store for $5.00?


Please let me know what you think!

I think it's a nice idea. I do the same thing with a larger bobby pin.

This is what I was thinking except I use a safety pin. As to the OP's question I wouldn't spend 5.00 on it but I'm sure other's would.
