Have you ever treated yourself to or been given a pretty new shower puff only to have it unravel into an unusable mess after a couple of showers?
Throwing it out isn’t an option, especially if it was a gift.
Maybe you’ve tried refolding it accordion style and retied it, only to have it fall apart again.
There’s a super quick, long term fix that will have your unraveled shower puff looking like new again.
How to Fix an Unraveled Shower Puff
I actually have two shower puffs that need fixing.
Let’s start with the blue one.
What you’ll need to fix the shower puff:
Thread the ribbon onto a needle.
Starting at one end, weave the needle in and out through both layers of the mesh netting every 3/8 of an inch or so.
No need to be super accurate or fussy here, just weave the needle in and out and pull the ribbon along as you go.
Continue to weave the needle in and out until you get to the other end of the shower puff mesh.
Once the entire length of the netting has been gathered on to the ribbon, cut the ribbon off the spool. Pull the ends of the ribbons to gather the shower puff evenly onto the ribbon as tightly as possible.
Tie a firm, tight knot. You may even want to double knot it.
Trim the ribbons to approximately 8 inches and knot the ends together.
This one is ready to hang in the shower.
Don’t worry if you don’t have one of those long doll making needles. A darning needle or any needle that has an eye big enough to thread the ribbon through will work.
Using a darning needle takes a little longer because it’s shorter than the soft sculpture needle but it gets the job done all the same.
This easy, long term fix may just have you gathering up all the shower and bath puffs in the house to get them repaired once and for all.
Time for a relaxing bubble bath!
Hmmm… which one shall I choose?
