Ready for even more fashion hacks?
Now you know how to remove oil stains, brighten up white sneakers, zip yourself up, and a whole lot more. But you’re about to learn how to master the J.Crew cuffs, remove red wine stains and waterproof your shoes.
Ready to get started?
1. The J.Crew Cuffs
Get that J.Crew cuff by folding, rolling, tugging, and scrunching the right way.
2. Polished Leather Shoes
Get leather boots back in tip-top condition with hair conditioner, gentle body wash and distilled vinegar.
3. Removing Lint Balls
Get rid of those pesky lint balls by rubbing a pumice stone on your sweater and using a lint roller to remove the lint.
4. Gum On Clothes
We hate it when gum gets stuck on our clothes, but what we hate even more is trying to remove it. If you find yourself in this sticky situation (get it?), rest assured knowing this trick will save the day. Hardening the piece of gum with ice will make it that much easier to clean off.
5. Cleaning Patent Leather
Having trouble cleaning patent leather shoes and bags? Use Windex to bring back the shine and remove scuff marks.
6. Red Wine Stains
Do you love your wine, but hate the stains it can potentially leave? Which is often what happens when you’re wearing your favorite pair of white pants or shirt. If you find yourself getting toasty and sloppy, know that you can remove the evidence with even more wine! White wine, that is. Club soda also works just as well but isn’t nearly as fun.
7. Remove Sweat Stains
Got sweat stains or yellow discoloration on your white shirt? Spray lemon juice on the stains before washing them, or use table salt, ammonia, or baking soda as demonstrated below.
8. Remove Makeup On Clothes
This happens all the time. To remove foundation on your shirt collars, just use shaving cream. Yup, it’s that easy!
9. DIY Double Hangers
Who knew these little things could actually be useful? Use can caps as the cheap solution to having double hangers at home.
10. Waterproof Shoes
If you want to make your shoes waterproof, rub beeswax all over them, let dry and any water your shoes come in contact with will slide right off.
11. DIY Cap Toe Flats
Why buy a pair when you can turn plain flats you already have into golden cap toe flats? All you need is golden spray paint and tape!
12. Keeping Buttons In Place
We all hate loosing buttons on our coats or cardigans… especially when it’s our favorite one. To keep your buttons in place apply clear nail polish over the threads and voila!
13. Smelly Shoes
Are your shoes starting to smell? If so, put dry tea bags in them to absorb the odor. Baking soda and charcoal also work!
14. Sweaty Pits
Say goodbye to wet sweat stains forever! To avoid a smelly situation, cut a panty liner in half and stick it on the armpit area of your top. This will not only stop sweat stains from appearing on your shirt, it will prevent discoloration too.
15. Keep Clothes On Hangers
Put rubber bands on the edge of hangers to prevent clothes from falling off.
16. Lipstick Stains
Got some lipstick on your top? Use hairspray to remove it (just don’t tell the men about this one).
17. Free Up Jean Space
If your jeans are a bit tight, loop a hair tie into the button hole and around the button to give your tummy some extra breathing room.
18. Fresh-Smelling Undies
Keep underwear smelling fresh by putting a sache of scent inside your undies drawer. Lavender is recommended.
Now you’re ready to take on any situation with these fashion hacks in your arsenal. Don’t you feel so much better knowing that wardrobe malfunctions are now a thing of the past?
