    Many, many replies. Seems like this is a common problem.

    In a few days will be getting a Bluetooth pair earbuds which sit in a box to recharge

    Goodbye to tangled earphone cables

    By the way I have heaps of never been taken out of their wrapping from all the phones and tablets and laptops I have accumulated (oh so many)

    Last time I looked had at least 5 sets ear buds I put in a newly bought large plastic box for dry goods in pantry
    I know there is a smaller plastic container almost over flowing and will tip small into large

    Much same same with charge cables

    I would think that buds don't tangle though.

    I've been brought to tears by my earphones tangling into a figure-8.

    String theory ran into much the same problem.

    On the bright side I think it found all my lost socks.

    I'm a proponent of the theory that socks are merely the larval stage for coat wire hangers. Those things breed like ... coat hangers.
     
    Michael 345 and Beaconator like this.
