Uses for Plastic Drinking Straws

Drinking straws seem to have only one purpose, but they have become a DIY. It’s not hard to see why: They’re produced in an endless range of fun colors and patterns, they’re cheap, and they’re super-versatile. Check out these unexpected ways to use :

  • Prevent necklaces from getting tables up while travelling.
  • Pit cherries and hull strawberries.
  • Stick straw into bottom of ketchup bottle and stir to make it flow better if the condiment is not coming out.
  • Keep soft stem flowers upright when arranging in vases.
  • Carry condiments on the go (like salt and pepper) by placing them in cut ends of straws and sealing ends with tape.
  • Use straws to apply caulk in a spot that’s too tight for a caulk gun.
  • Fish out broken cork pieces from a wine bottles by placing straw end over cork and placing finger over other end of straw to create a suction.
  • Make Jell-O worms. Place straws upright and pour Jell-O gelatinous solution into them. Let sit and hold straws over warm water to remove worms from straws.
