Sometimes we experience a few clothing mishaps and want a quick-fix solution instead of buying new clothes.
Here are 10 helpful clothing hacks that will keep your clothes fresh and fixed:
- Remove pilling with a razor
Over time, your clothes, especially sweaters, start to create tiny little ‘fuzz’ balls that make it look old. Simply remove this by running a normal razor over them.
- Iron collars and cuffs with a hair straightener
If you’re in a rush and have no time to fix the creases on your collar or cuffs, just use a hair straightener!
- If a zipper is stuck, use a bar of soap
Quit struggling trying to force that zipper to come up. Rub a bar of dry soap on the zips teeth and voila!
- Use a toothbrush to remove dirt stains from suede
Make your suede garments look clean and fresh by simply using an old toothbrush to brush dirt away.
- Remove gum from jeans using ice
Getting chewing gum stuck on your jeans can be very difficult to remove. Apply ice onto the gum until it hardens, and then simply peel it off.
- Use a key ring to keep zippers up
Don’t you hate it when your jean zip keeps falling down? Avoid that by attaching a key ring to the zip and hooking it around the button to keep it up.
- Remove deodorant stains with baby wipes
Simply remove deodorant marks on clothes by wiping it with a baby wipe.
- Use double-sided tap to fix button gaps
Get more coverage and eliminate button gaps with double sided tape. Just stick the tape in between the gaps of your shirt.
- Apply clear nail polish on loose buttons
Got a button that’s a little loose? Apply some clear nail polish over the button to seal the thread and keep it from falling off.
- Clean leather shoes with cold water and vinegar
Want to refresh dull looking leather shoes? Just clean it with a bit of white distilled vinegar and cold water. This is great a method to remove stains without damage too!
When seasons change, make sure to look after your clothes even if you’re not going to use them. Store them away in vacuum pack bags and don’t forget to laundry and dry-clean your clothes before sealing them away and make any necessary repairs to minor damages.
