This is something I've pretty much just always done. But it occured to me last week as my husband asked yet again for me to remove a loose string that not everyone may do this.
Keep a pair of scissors in your bathroom! I keep mine in the medicine cabinet. They come in handy more often than you might imagine. Usually I notice loose threads while I'm standing in front of the mirror. It's so nice to just be able to clip it off right then rather than waiting until I go into another room (by which time I'll have probably forgotten about it.)
Other uses for scissors in the bathroom:
* Opening the shink wrap packaging on razors, mouthwash, shampoo, etc
* Cutting off an itchy tag from a shirt
How would/do you use scissors in the bathroom?
By the way, if you write the word scissors enough times it starts to look really, really strange!
