The weather can be really hard to bear especially during the rainy season where the risk of passing through floods and being in an uncomfortable position is present.
Talk about it, I know it sucks to see your favorite shoe, shirt, hoodie, or sweater get all messed up and that’s what we’re trying to avoid. However, accidents do happen whatever the season is and we can only do so much when facing a tough situation – now the next best thing we can do here is come up with an immediate remedy to solve the problem.
Lucky are you, we have prepared a list of clothing fix you can apply to revive or cure clothes that have been damaged.
1.GET RID OF OIL STAINS
Oil stains are a pain in the ass. The longer you wait, the harder to remove the stain so first tip, act on it, fast. Blot the stain first with tissue paper on both sides of the stained area, if that doesn’t work put baby powder on the area to soak the oil off your shirt. That will do the trick!
2. RESTRING YOUR HOODIE
Pulled too hard on those hood laces? It takes a lot off work to put them back in. Here’s a trick, attach a safety pin on your hood lace; it will make restringing your hoodie way easier. It works on the draw string on your shorts too!
3. SECURE YOUR BUTTONS
Finding a matching thread and threading that needle along takes so much of your time, especially if you’re running late. Secure your buttons by coating it with clear nail polish. Just a dab will keep those buttons in place.
3. REMOVE LINT PILLING ON YOUR CLOTHES
You can always use lint rollers but you have to constantly buy refills. Using a cheap razor will do a better job removing lint than lint rollers but if you don’t want to use razors on your clothes, use tape instead.
4. CLEAN WHITE SHOES
Rainy season has just begun and your white shoes just might get all muddy. Clean them by making a paste with 1 tablespoon baking soda and 1/2 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide and ½ tablespoon of warm water. Take a scrub brush or a toothbrush, dip it in the baking soda solution, and scrub the stains. Allow the baking soda solution to dry on the shoe under sunlight for at least thirty minutes. Those shoes will be good as new!
There you have it. Now you can fix your clothes and be prepared just in case you need to. Remember this tips, you never know when they’ll be handy.
