Do you like to chew gum?
are you sick of the paper packaging getting ripped open in your pocket, so you have a pocket full of individual gum pieces?

If so read on.

Step 1: Get the items you need

Get these two items

1) an altoids smalls container.
2) a pack of your favorite gum.
4 stars. I always chew gum and all the wrappers and stray gum get everywhere in my pocket so i can see what motivated you to make this! A instructable should get a good rating if it works, it serves its purpose, and is something you can and would use!
Uh, that doesn't even work as an instructable... all you are doing is changing the container, no skill to it. Although it's a good idea, there's nothing to it. To win any contest or get a good rating, you're going to have to try a bit harder, so change it, ad something and maybe I'll change my rating. For now, halfa star.
Okay you know this is pretty cool and well sometimes cool things like that are just cool to have... like when you but a mac(come on you dont NEED a mac but it looks so COOL!
I just realized how stupid that comment was... sorry
But I see the point. I had a pack of trident and it got through the washing machine... this would really keep 'em dry.
Mini Altoids tins are not waterproof. They will help with an occasional splash, but not immersion. They will <em>definitely </em>not help in the washing machine.<br/>
being the person i am... i had to test this. And pdub420 is correct. Neither Mini Altoids or regular sized altoids are waterproof. However while i have left individual pieces of gum in my pants pocket, so far i have noticed when the altoids smalls is in my pocket. So while it wouldnt help in the washing machine, hopefully the sturdier heavier case would not actually make it into the washing machine. :)
Put ridiculously strong magnets on each side of the opening to your washing machine. Maybe that will help stop the tin from making it in. ; )
Yeah but then the buttons on your jeans would get stuck. :)
lol yeah, not exactly practical :P
Hey, just throwing out ideas. . . =)<br/>
poor altoids :[
