Genius trick to mend a broken umbrella


The forecast is calling for rain, but when you grab your umbrella you notice that the fabric has detached from one of the metal ribs. The save: Cut a few lengths of waxed dental floss to 2 feet and use a sewing needle to thread the floss through the umbrella’s fabric and tie it back to the spoke to secure. The heavy-duty waterresis­tant medicine-cabinet staple will hold the umbrella together to keep you dry.
