Everyone has their cherished, go-to items in their clothes closet, but sometimes these treasured items can look tired and done. Unsightly stains, rips and runs, and obnoxious odors can all consign classic garments to the garbage. But before you dump those designer duds, try on these clothing hacks for size. They could bring about a new lease of life for your most adored apparel. Or just help reorganize your wardrobe into something a little more manageable. Either way, these 20 make-do-and-mend trend tips can save you both time and money…
20. Don’t give up – throw in the towel
We have all been there – you are just about to go out, when you realize the item you wanted to wear is still damp from the wash and time is of the essence. Instead of changing your mind about your outfit, try chucking your first-choice into the dryer alongside a dry towel. Apparently, the addition speeds up the process and will help dry your desired garment much more quickly.
19. Grease is not the word
Got a greasy glob on your gear that just will not disappear? Don’t get in a lather – dish soap is your friend. After all, you already use it to remove problematic grease from your dinnerware, so why not from your outerwear? In fact, dish soap is even strong enough to shift old stains as well as fresh ones – just make sure to get a petroleum-based soap, rather than a plant-based version.
