Simple way how to make every cord coiled.

Step 1: Tools

What you need:
1. Cooking pot
2. Cooker
3. Pipe or stick
4. 2x cable tie
5. Wire

Step 2: Winding

First, hold one end of wire with electrician tie, then winds wire tight around pipe and then hold another end of wire with second electrician tie.

Step 3: "Cooking"

Put pipe with cord into pot with water such, that whole cord is under water. Then bring water to boil, wait about 5 minutes, then turn cooker off and wait 30 minutes. Then cool wire with pipe under cold water. It should be done, so you can cut ties and pull wire out.

Step 4: Finish

Now, you have coiled cord :).
This is easy way, how you can turn every cord into coiled cord. For example mobile charger in car ;).

Step 5: Another Way, How to Make Coiled Cord

There are many questions about corrosion wire caused by water in comments. So I tried use a hair dryer instead of boiling water. And it works pretty well, but I don't know if it will work with thicker cord.

<p>you could just use a blow dryer right??</p>
<p>Wouldn't it be a good idea to seal the end of the cord that is submerged<br> to avoid water from wicking up the wire, and the inevitable corrosion <br>that it would cause? Maybe by placing the whole thing in a plastic bag, or zipper bag before going into the pot?</p>
<p>I think it's not so big problem with wicking water up. But yes, placing into plastik bag could work well. Thanks :)</p>
not sure that a ziploc bag would work, but I totally agree. My best guess would be to use some clay to plug up the end and then just cut it off later, but it might also work to put a piece of heatshrink over the end.
<p>Would this work with a hot-air gun instead of boiling water?</p>
<p>Yes, I think it will work, but no everyone have hot-air gun like me, but boiling water, it have everyone :)</p>
