There two methods I use to make my cables look neat and clutter free, either use a paperclip or a keyring. Both methods will be shown.

Step 5: Paperclip Method,

Just attach the paperclip to either the whole cable, shown on the left. Or only on one side of the cable, as shown on the right. Both achieve the purpose in this Instructable.

Step 6: Keychain Method,

This is a more simple way of doing it. Just slip the ring over the cable, it should fit tight. This will ensure the ring does not fall off.

Step 7: You're Done!

i'd say tape to wrap around would do.

Its just an alternative to the stick mess that tape leaves...

you can wrap the tape with the stickey face on the outside, then cover it with a strip of paper. when you remove the tape there is no goo on the wires. it is sortof like using proper loom tape.
