If you ever accidentally drop pieces of cork into your newly opened wine bottle, you can use a plastic drinking straw to fish them out. Simply place the straw over the cork piece and close the other end of the straw with your finger to create a suction that sucks the cork out of the wine.
As far as other drinking straw hacks go, you can use them to remove pits from cherries, keep necklaces untangled, apply caulk, create an ideal floral arrangement in your vase, and more.
