7 Clothing Repair & Cleaning Hacks

When it comes to clothes, we all have items that are worn, tattered, and just plain old. They’re usually our favorite items of clothing and have only gotten to look so bad because we like to wear them so much. Other times, there are some unfortunate mishaps like spills and incorrect washing methods. If you have some clothes that you would like to spruce up, I’ll share with you some ideas today! Check these simple solutions and learn what you can do about those deodorant marks, dirt, wrinkles, foundation stains, and more! These tips can also enable you scoop up great deals on slightly damaged clothing in stores, or cute items in thrift shops that have seen a little more wear than you’d like – you’ll have tools to make them look like new. The best part? The tools you need are most likely already in your home. Give some of these a try and tell your friends if they work for you.

Hair spray as lipstick stain remover
