1. Clean Dirty Shoes With Nail Polish Remover
Did you step in mud, but don't feel like taking the time to clean your dirty shoes? We get it, it's one of the more annoying things you'll ever have to do. But if you put some nail polish remover on a cotton pad and rub it on the rubber part of your sneakers, they'll look brand new again!
2. Erase Makeup Stains With Shaving Cream
A lot of people use makeup on a pretty regular basis and most will inevitably end up with makeup stains on the neckline of their shirts. But the good news is, there's an easy way to get rid of those stains. Just spray some shaving cream on the neckline of your shirt, let it sit for a few minutes, rub out all the stains with a sponge, heat the area with a blow dryer, and you're done!
3. Fix Runs In Your Tights With Nail Polish
Thin tights are prone to unsightly runs, and there's nothing worse than noticing that you have a run when you're out and about. That's why you should always carry clear nail polish with you. In case of emergency, simply coat the run in clear nail polish and it won't spread any further – and you can go about your day without worrying about any imminent disasters!
4. Secure A Zipper With A Split Key Ring
An open fly is not that great to look at, and what's more, it's super embarrassing for the person dealing with this dilemma. Sometimes it's not even your fault, some flies just come undone all the time. Thankfully, there's an easy way to avoid mishaps like this in the future: all you have to do is attach a split key ring to your fly, and that's it.
5. Remove Water Stains With Vinegar
Rain and snow can leave some pretty ugly stains on your shoes, and just using a wet rag usually won't cut it. Here's the good news: To get rid of water stains on your shoes, you don't have to buy any fancy cleaning products. The bad news? There is none because you can just take a toothbrush, dip it in vinegar, rub out those stains, and wipe! No more stains, plus the vinegar will give your shoes a nice shine.
6. Eliminate Wrinkles With A Flat Iron
Raise your hand if you're guilty of forgetting to iron the collar of your shirt. And the worst part is, you only ever notice once you're already dressed and have one foot out the door. Fortunately, there's an easier way to iron collars that doesn't require removing the shirt and pulling out the bulky ironing board: just use a flat iron and you're good to go!
