Threading a needle takes lots of patience and too much time for most people, but a hack that's going viral is here to change that. Instead of trying to insert the thread into the tiny eye of the needle, you can instead lay the thread flat on the palm of your hand. With your other hand, place the needle flat on top of the thread and vigorously move it back and forth where the hole hits the strand. The friction between the needle and the thread will cause the two to meet, and after a few seconds, the thread will be through the hole!
Twitter user John Bick shared this life-changing tip, which is originally from an online series called 5-Minute Crafts. With more than 21,000 favourites and counting, the tweet has other people praising the idea and questioning why they'd never thought of this before.
What type of sorcery is this? https://t.co/uI2jQJAv5l
