10 Hush-hush fashion and style hacks every girl needs to know about
It’s not easy being a girl sometimes, especially when things don’t go according to plan when you don’t have a lot of time. That’s when having a few fashion hacks up your sleeve can be a real life saver, so here are ten of our favourite hush-hush, fashion and style hacks to see you through:
1. Make perfume last for longer
You paid a lot of money for that beautiful scent, so you want it to smell as good as new for as long as possible. You can keep perfume, fresh for much longer, by keeping it in the refrigerator. You can also make it last longer, by applying some moisturiser first.
2. Stop your fingers from going green
If you have some cheap jewellery that you absolutely adore, but it keeps leaving green marks on your fingers, try painting the jewellery with some clear nail polish and that will stop the stains.
3. Remove deodorant and sweat stains with lemon juice
For a simple way to remove underarm sweat and deodorant stains from blouses, just rub the area with a mixture of equal parts of lemon juice and water, before you pop the clothes into the wash. Works a treat!
4. Drying out suede shoes
If you get your suede shoes wet, stuff the insides of them with some old newspaper and wrap the outside with some paper too. This will help them to dry faster and they will also keep their shape.
5. Make tights last longer
If you spray your tights with a light mist of hair spray, before you put them on, it will help to stop you getting runs and the tights will last much longer.
6. Make jeans smell fresh again
Washing jeans too often will make them stretch and get baggy. You can freshen up a pair of jeans, without washing, by popping them in a freezer bag, along with a dryer sheet, overnight. When they thaw out again, they will smell fresh and clean again.
7. Remove grease from clothes
Grease and oil from food can be hard to get out of clothes. You can make it a lot easier by rubbing some baby powder into the stain before washing. It will soak up the grease and it will all then come out in the wash.
8. Hide damaged heels with glitter
If you’ve damaged the heels on your favourite shoes, you can give them a new lease of life by applying some glitter to the shredded area. That way, you get a whole new pair of stunning, two tone shoes.
9. Stretch out new flats in the freezer
When you buy a brand new pair of flat shoes, they can pinch at the toes, when you first wear them. You can stretch them out a little by placing sealed sandwich bags filled with water in them and putting the shoes in the freezer overnight. As the water freezes, it will expand and it will leave more room in your new shoes.
10. Fix a stuck zip
Don’t tug on a stick zipper because it will break! Instead, try applying a little coconut oil with a cotton bud and then try. That should fix it.
