**When garments start to pill from the wash, you can remove the fuzz with a razor. Simply run the razor lightly over the area and then carefully remove the pieces that collect in the razor. Repeat until all the pills are gone!
**Did you just NEED to have those leather loafers that were on sale but maybe just half a size too small? Put on a pair on thick socks and slip your feet into the shoes. Take a hairdryer and on medium heat, start to warm up the shoes. This will help the leather stretch and mold to your feet.
**Avoid dealing with pesky white marks and trying to remove the stain using various methods – dryer sheets, rubbing fabric together, sponges, etc. – by using Dove Invisible Dry Spray Antiperspirant. It goes on invisible to leave no white marks on 100 colors of clothing.
**When a zipper just won’t budge you can rub a bit of Vaseline along where it is stuck. The Vaseline will help the zipper slide and wiggle free!
**If a button is loose and you don’t have time to re-sew it into place, take some clear nail polish and dab it on the knot, then hold the button in place for a minute. It acts as glue and will make it more secure until you can get a proper fix!
**Have a run in your stockings? Prevent it from growing bigger with hairspray. Simply spray the area where the run started and it will hold the fabric together.
