needleless / new material/thread

needleless
needleless

“Needleless”, acting as the thread, is a new material used for sewing.The housewives need to first cut the thread end at an angle, dampen it between lips as they usually do when sewing. A few seconds later, the part which has been saturated with saliva would be hardened enough to pierce cloth. After sewing, they only need to cut the hardened part off. “Needleless” has changed the way people sew, so people don’t need needles anymore, not to mention threading needles.
