Save your favourite wardrobe pieces with these fifteen household fashion fixes.
It is not very often I say this but sometimes shopping is not the answer. Do you have stains on your favourite shoes or clothes? Before you throw them in the bin and hit the shops to replace them, check out the below fifteen household items that could literally be their saviour. The best part? You should have most of them lying around the house anyway!
- Bread crust
Use the crust of stale bread to gently rub and remove dirt stains off suede.
- Graphite pencil
Fix a zipper that is stuck by rubbing the teeth with the tip of a graphite pencil.
Scratches on leather? Use a small amount of moisturiser on a cotton tip to gently rub the leather until the scratch is gone.
- Salad spinner
Dry hand-washed clothes with a salad spinner.
- Baby powder
Remove oil stains from clothing or a purse by applying baby powder and leaving it overnight.
If you have shoes that are stiff or a little snug, put them on with socks and then use your hairdryer to blowdry them so they soften and stretch.
- Ensure dark jeans don’t fade by adding ½ cup of distilled white vinegar at the final rinse cycle of their wash.
- Remove water stains off leather by scrubbing with a mix of vinegar and water.
