16 trendy beauty secrets that will never make you buy new clothes
Cleaning and recovery of what you have
Our first section of fashion tips consists of hacks that show you how to clean up stains or splashes on your favorite fashion garments and accessories. If you once thought you had to throw away clothes or accessories, these tips will help you clean and store them instead of having to replace them.
1. Red wine stains
Red wine stains are notoriously difficult to remove. Oddly, pouring white wine on a red wine stain will help remove it.
2. Greasy or oily spots
Fat and oil is very difficult to get out of clothes. You can increase your chances by sprinkling talcum powder all over the stain and letting it absorb the oil. Then try adding Pine-Sol to the washing machine load. It is normally used for household cleaning, but is known to clean oily stains. If you don’t have Pine-Sol, add some dish soap formulated to help cut grease in addition to laundry detergent.
3. Rubber or wax
Weird things can get into clothes, shoes, or other fabrics you love. Melted gum or wax can be nearly impossible to remove. Pre-treat it with Pine-Sol and remove as much as possible before putting it in the washing machine. Then add Pine-Sol to the laundry with regular laundry detergent to get rid of the rest.
4. Dirt on suede shoes
Suede shoes are a lot of fun to wear but they get dirty easily and it is always difficult to clean them. Let the stain dry and then try to scrape it off with a metal nail file.
5. Water marks on skin
If you have discoloration on leather shoes or clothing due to water, spray them with a mixture of vinegar and cold water.
6. Deodorant for white marks
It happens to all of us, you get dressed, put on deodorant and then you decide to change, and then you find white deodorant marks all over your shirt. Use baby wipes to easily wipe deodorant marks off the shirt.
7. Yellow deodorant stains
Another problem caused by the deodorant is the yellow spots that form on the armpits. To prevent this stain from forming, sprinkle lemon juice on the armpits of your shirts before putting them in the washing machine.
We all know that tights don’t last forever, but you can make them last longer by treating them with hairspray. If you run in pantyhose or stockings, the clear polish will prevent it from continuing to run.
9. Store the sweaters
Do you have a favorite furry long sweater that could be made from angora or cashmere? Always keep them in a plastic bag (not just during the summer) in a plastic bag and this will prevent them from moving, snagging or any other danger.
10. Smelly trainers
Having trouble getting the smell out of your sneakers? Try putting a tea bag inside each of your sneakers and it will absorb the smell.
Refurbish and reuse what you have
Our second section of fashion hacks includes a list of ways to repurpose and refurbish what you have. You may think that renovating old clothes and accessories won’t keep them trendy, but it doesn’t, you can create new trendy creations by reusing and recycling what you have. All of our tips are low cost and will make you love your old clothes and accessories even more than before.
11. Shoes too small?
If you need to stretch shoes that are too small, put the water in a ziplock bag, put it in the toe section of the shoe, and put it in the freezer. When the water freezes, it slowly expands and gently stretches the shoe.
12. Scratched high heels
If the heels of your high-heeled shoes are all rubbed and look frayed, find glitter that comes close to the color of your shoes and use glitter spray before sprinkling the glitter on the heels. Glitter hides any imperfections if they are no longer smooth and you have a beautiful new-looking shoe.
13. Do it yourself cardigan
Do you have a favorite shirt that’s too big for you right now? Turn it into a cardigan by cutting it in half. Directions here on Pinterest.
14. Embellish old jeans
Do you have old jeans that have holes that you don’t want? Buy fabric flowers and add them to your jeans in strategic places. If the fabric flowers are not washable, just use safety pins and remove them before washing.
