Every fashionista has her daily outfits planned out. Aside from that, every piece is taken with extreme care to ensure they last a long time. But external factors could put unnecessary wear and tear, including the weather. If you think winter is ruining your most prized pieces, here are five brilliant hacks you probably don’t know yet.
Freeze new tights overnight before wearing them.
This could extend the life of your tights. So, how to freeze your opaques? Run them under the faucet. Wring them properly to squeeze the water out. Then, place them in a plastic bag, and pop it in the freezer for a whole night to strengthen the fibers of the tights. Before using them in the morning, thaw them first.
Use home products to soften itchy sweaters.
If your favorite sweater has become itchy due to age, you can soften it by soaking it in mixture of white vinegar and cold water for 15 minutes. Then, gradually pour hair conditioner on the conditioner, gently massaging it. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes. After that, rinse the conditioner out and let your sweater dry.
Freeze sweaters and coats to prevent them from shedding.
It can be embarrassing to wear clothes that are shedding. But instead of not wearing your favorite cashmere, wool or knitted clothing, freeze them before you wear them. This keeps the fiber of your clothes intact.
Hang leather clothing to avoid creases.
Some people fold leather pants or jackets thinking that they don’t need ironing. But doing so could cause creases and ruin your leather clothes. To prevent this from happening, hang them using the hangers with clamps. Use cardboard to protect the material from clamp indents.
Save old stockings or tights with runs by using a stronghold hairspray.
The spray will hold the fibers together and prevent the run from worsening and ruining your hosiery.
Make your winter staples last for several years by using these hacks. That way you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite clothes and save money at the same time.
