You have clingy pants that stick to your legs, new shoes that don’t quite fit right, and a t-shirt that was shrunk when you washed it. Time to say goodbye to all of these problems. Here is a list of quick-fixes for these and other problems.
Getting rid of stains on leather
Just apply a mixture of water and vinegar and gently rub it over the stain.
Keeping jewelry clean
This applies only to the non-precious metal parts of your jewelry. Cover the inside part of a ring with clear nail polish. You will not have to worry about getting marks on your fingers again.
Getting rid of oily stains on your clothes
Use baby powder to get rid of the stain.
Rescuing a shrunken t-shirt
Put your shrunken item of clothing into water with some kids’ shampoo (one liter of water for every spoon of shampoo). Leave it to soak for half an hour. Squeeze out the water and place the t-shirt between two towels for ten minutes. Then stretch the item out to its original size, putting something heavy on the edges to keep it stretched, and leave it to dry.
Use a razor to get rid of fluff from your clothes
Stopping jeans from fading
Add half a glass of vinegar to the washing machine to stop dark jeans losing their color when being washed.
To quickly iron a collar
Hair straighteners can help you to quickly iron the fabric around buttons and folds on shirts and skirts.
Removing scuff marks from suede shoes
