There is always hope! Even if it seems to you that your favorite thing is irrevocably ruined, do not give up. Try these overwhelming clothing care tips. They are unusual, but they work great!
We remind you that you can remove any unpleasant odor from clothes with the help of vodka – you just need to spray it on the problematic item. These tips are a saving straw for neat housewives. Here’s what to do when your regular wash won’t get you perfect results!
I hate spiky sweaters – the annoying itch negates the warming effect of a quality woolen garment. Wrapping a clean, damp sweater in a plastic bag and placing it in the freezer for a couple of hours can easily fix this problem! A thawed sweater will no longer irritate your skin.
This technique also helps to avoid deformation of woolen garments after washing and to restore the shape of already damaged clothes. It is enough to hold the washed, rolled-up woolen blouse in the freezer for only 3 hours – the shape will be perfect, no stretched loops.
Lipstick stains can be easily removed with hairspray. Apply some polish to the stain, blot it with a napkin, and wash your clothes. A mixture of lemon juice and baking soda works well against lipstick – a very affordable stain remover.
Buttons on warm clothes are insidious: they twist and get lost at the most inopportune moment. Put a little bit of clear polish down the center of the buttons, right on the threads, and they’ll stick much tighter!
Shaving foam will handle even traces of oily foundation – apply a little suds on the stain, scrub it and rinse the fabric after a couple of minutes. If the foam or shaving cream doesn’t do the trick, try rubbing the foundation stain with rubbing alcohol.
Rub the deodorant stains with edible salt and leave the garment overnight: the stains will disappear after the morning wash. If stains appear on black clothes, moisten them with vodka and leave for half an hour, then wash. The correct method!
Any stains and scratches on suede shoes can be removed with a polished nail file.
Wrapping jeans in a bag and placing them in the freezer will remove any unpleasant odors that denim loves to absorb. Complete disinfection of jeans is impossible with a regular wash: they cannot stand high temperatures, but in the freezer all germs will be mercilessly destroyed.
Stretched jeans can be restored to their former shape by turning the dry jeans inside out and placing them in the dryer for 15 minutes.
Animal fur on clothes
The hair of a cat or dog can stick tightly to clothing. There is a sure way to clean things out of it! Use duct tape instead of a handy garment roller that doesn’t even remove half of the fur. A couple of minutes and everything is fine.
These clever solutions have come in handy for me more than once.
