I recently created a post providing you with some useful life hacks, so I figured it would be equally beneficial to dedicate a post to clothing hacks. I would argue there are likely hacks for just about everything, but considering clothes are pretty much a necessity in our daily lives, I hope these hacks can be of use to someone.
- Remove pillage from clothes by running a razor over them (but be careful with this one). Once you’ve removed a majority of the pillage, use some tape to rid your clothes of the final remnants.
- Learn how to perform basic sewing maneuvers to fix buttons that have broken off. It isn’t as hard as you may think.
- Use a sharpie to cover bleach stains that have occurred on black clothing.
- Iron the collar of a shirt with a hair-straightener (I can attest to the fact that this one definitely works).
- Fix a broken zipper (one that has come off of its tracks) with candle wax, crayons, nail polish, or a pencil.
- Use shaving cream to remove makeup stains from clothes.
- If your shoes aren’t quite wide enough, fill a Ziploc bag with water, place them in the shoes and place in the freezer overnight. The water will expand as it freezes, causing the shoes to expand with it.
- Wearing a leather jack in the rain is a way to give it that classic distressed look.
- Use white wine to remove red wine stains.
- USe talcum powder to remove oil stains.
- Clear nail polish will stop a run from expanding in tights (hairspray also works).
- If you’re in a pinch and need to polish leather shoes, use a gentle facial moisturizer.
- Use clear nail polish to tighten sunglasses.
