Hairspray: Not Just for Prom

Finally, a good use for a big ol’ can of Aquanet (or Frizz Ease, as shown in the below photo). Just spray a little hairspray (any kind will do) on the end of your thread to stiffen it, and needle threading becomes a cinch. A little hairspray on the fingertips will make them nice and sticky for easy thread grabbing, too.
