Give a new life to broken clothespins!
This instructable it rally easy, but I tough maybe not everybody know how to fix a broken clothespin, and just put them in the garbage ones they are.
I think about this after I purchase some clothespins in a dollar store, and half of them fell apart almost immediately.
In this way I fixed them they will NEVER BREAK ANYMORE! (And if they do, you just replace the ring on them, so they will last forever).

• I also made some diy clothespin in another instructable, if you are intrested:

Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED

Picture of WHAT YOU NEED

All you need is some broken clothespins and a piece of bike innertube.

Step 2: CUT THE INNERTUBE

Cut the innertube widthwise, in thin rings.

Step 3: ROLL THE RINGS

Roll the innertube rings 2 or 3 time (depending on the measure of your innertube) around the clothespin, just where the spring were.

Don't make the rings too tight or you will not be able to open your clothespins anymore!

Step 4: DONE!

You are done! Now you have your LIFETIME CLOTHESPINS!
