What happened to old-fashioned household string?

Blinkins | Jul 4, 2011 01:55 PM

I just ran out of my kitchen string - you know the old-fashioned, cotton white string you can break with your hands? I've searched every store I can think of in the Oakville/Burlington area and cannot locate - the closest thing I've found is what is referred to as 'Medium Household Twine' at a big box hardware store - but it's much rougher than the old stuff and can't be broken with a good tug. Has anyone purchased string in the last year - if so where!! I've tried grocery, hardware, dollar stores - even Cdn Tire - they sent me to the rope section - but alas, only rope and more twine.
