Find Every Detail of the Broken Ornament With This Trick
Unusual Christmas tree decorations tend to shatter into a billion small pieces of glass that can easily cut someone if dropped or knocked off their feet. Don’t let this happen! When your cat, child, or clumsy family member casts a piece of jewelry into hilarious oblivion, try this trick instead.
Start by going around with a vacuum cleaner or broom. This will give you most of the larger pieces, but you won’t be able to get them all this way. This is why Reddit editor hilarymeggin invites you to bring a flashlight with you :
When cleaning broken glass, after you have collected all the parts you can see, turn off the overhead light, place the flashlight on the floor and look for glitter … Try from different angles as well. I just did it with a piece of jewelry my daughter broke and found six more shards in the carpet after I thought I was vacuumed.
Find those sequins and put them away. You might be surprised how many shards will still be available. After all, the last thing you want for Christmas is thousands of tiny cuts on your feet.
