Apple fanatics know all about the White Cord Blame Game. When your boyfriend and roommate and nephew and cousin and plumber all have the exact same white iPhone power cord, it's easy to get them confused. And you can bet your iPad that if one ever goes missing, it's always the other person's charger, right?
Here's an easy tip from a crafty blogger that will keep everyone's identical cords in order: Using inexpensive perler beads, she gave her cords a color tag to keep them organized and easily identifiable.
Helena from the blog Craft and Creativity discovered that the melty beads you used to create potholders at summer camp will wrap perfectly around Apple's standard iPhone and iPad charger cords.
Since perler beads come in a ridiculous array of colors and styles, you can be sure that you'll have enough to keep all of your household's Apple cords in order (no matter how many iPhones, iPods and iPads you keep plugged in). We happen to think the glow-in-the-dark beads might help with finding the end of your charger on a dark bedside table.
You can buy a pack of perler beads at your local craft store or online for just a few bucks.
