If there’s one thing we love, it’s a fashion hack. Whether it’s getting tough stains out of clothes or finding the perfect accessory for your wardrobe, here are four fashion hacks you probably didn’t know about – and you should do!
Shaving cream stain remover:
There’s nothing worse than foundation stains on a new white blouse, but according to The Cleaning Authority, you can say goodbye to makeup stains with an everyday household item: Shaving cream.
This is particularly helpful when you find the perfect outfit in the sale, only to find there are makeup stains lurking on the neckline or sleeve.
To remove the stain, simply apply the cream and leave it to absorb for 10 minutes. Doing so will give the shaving cream time to cut through the oil in the makeup. Then, blot off the excess, rinse and pop in the washing machine. Your outfit will look as good as new in no time.
Those who wear glasses are in a constant struggle of swapping them out for prescription sunnies – or worse – choosing between non-prescription sunglasses and squinting for the day. Essentially, without investing in prescription sunglasses, glasses wearers get to decide whether to be blind without their glasses or blind from the sun.
But not anymore.
If you don’t want to have to spend a fortune on prescription sunnies, you can now get clip-on sunglasses! These cool accessories are perfect for driving in the sun or sitting at the beach while reading a book. As you might’ve guessed, these sunglasses clip onto your existing pair of specs – so you get the best of both worlds.
Wine on wine:
We’re all guilty of spilling after a few vinos, but if you’re a wine connoisseur and dabble in both red and white, you’ve got yourself a tipple and a stain remover.
