Often, we find ourselves in situations where we are rushing to attend an important occasion or trying to reach the office on time but our dress messes up. This can ruin your whole day!
If you stop to pick another outfit, this can take up your whole time. Don’t worry, these clothing hacks have got you covered. They include a quick fix to common problems:
#1: Boots on Jeans
Boots aren’t just meant for cowboys. Anyone can wear them. However, not all of us are aware of the right way of wearing them. Whether you are wearing them with printed shirts or solid colors, this is how to wear them:
- Put long socks over your jeans.
- Wear the boots over the socks and there you go.
- You will feel comfortable throughout the day.
#2: Making an Old Sweater New
You might have 2-3 old sweaters that you love too much to let go of. The lint or fuzzy piling on sweaters makes them look untidy. Don’t throw these sweaters, use a razor to clean the lint.
This might not work on loosely knitted sweaters. You must be very careful while you use a razor for removing the lint or else you will end up making a hole in your sweater.
#3: Fixing Ripped Pants
Have you accidentally ripped your jeans by bending over? No worries. You don’t have to rush home to change them.
Just arrange a stapler and use it on the inner seam of your pants. This will buy you some time. People won’t even notice anything. But you have to be careful not to bend again.
#4: Hair Iron for Ironing Shirt
Do you have a business meeting in 15 minutes and your shirt is all wrinkly? Don’t worry, if you have a straightening iron, it will save the day. Use the iron on your collar and other visible parts of your shirt and there you go, your shirt is all pressed.
#5: Fixing Smelly Shoes
Do your gym shoes look great but are smelly? You can fix this problem overnight. Pop a couple of tea bags inside the shoes and leave them overnight. You can also leave them inside your gym bag if it’s stinky.
#6: Removing Armpit Stains
Some stubborn armpit stains don’t leave even after washing. Before tossing your clothes with stains in the washing machine, use baking soda or lemon juice to remove the stains.
Mix lemon juice and water in equal proportion and scrub it onto the stains. If the stain is tough, use baking soda and water. You will have to let it sit for a couple of minutes though. Scrub and then rinse. This should remove the stain.
#7: Foundation Stains
It’s common to have foundation stains on your clothes. No matter how careful you are, the stains somehow follow. This usually happens when you take your shirt off and the makeup smudges on the collar.
Don’t worry, there is a solution to this problem. Use shaving cream directly that spot. Then, toss the shirt in the wash. Your shirt will be as good as new.
#8: Lipstick Stains
Hairspray is very effective for removing a lipstick stain if it is not a dry-clean-only fabric. Let the hairspray sit there for a few minutes. Then dab the stain so that it comes out. Now put it in the washer.
#9: Deodorant Stains
Deodorant stains tend to leave marks on clothes too. Before you simply toss them into the washing machine, use baby wipes and rub them on the stains.
You will be surprised to see that wipes can diminish the deodorant stains within seconds.
#10: Zipper Problem
Have you ever looked down and realized your fly was open all the time. To make sure your zipper remains zipped, use a keychain ring. Hook the ring onto the zipper’s end and use it for securing it over the button. Your movement will not make the zipper open.
#11: Cleaning the Suede
If you own suede shoes, you would agree that maintaining them is hard work. Dirty suede shoes don’t always have to go. You can clean them and they will become as good as new. Micellar water is highly effective in reversing the stains on suede shoes.
#12: Bad Odor from Jeans
We try to get as many wears out of our jeans as possible before tossing them in the wash. This often results in unwanted odor. This practice is a bit unhealthy, to be honest. The best way of stopping the odor-causing bacteria is to place your jeans in a plastic bag and place them in the freezer overnight.
#13: Stretching New Shoes
New shoes can be a bit uncomfortable especially high heels. A great way of stretching them up to avoid the discomfort is to place freezer bags in your shoes.
Fill freezer bags with water and place them in your shoes. Now place the shoes into the freezer overnight. Your shoes will stretch out for you in the morning.
#14: Belts to the Rescue
A belt can change the look of any outfit. If you use it the right away, it can accent your figure and make your waist thinner.
Therefore, don’t miss the opportunity to wear a belt for popping up an outfit. Make sure the material of the belt is different from that of your garment. That’s the key to make it look good.
#15: Save the Look with a Scarf
You probably must have a number of wonderful accessories with you. The classiest option is a scarf. You can find them in a variety of sizes, colors, and materials. It won’t be hard to come across a scarf that matches your personality.
A scarf is the fastest way of accessorizing. It can turn an ordinary look outfit into something classic and trendy
