  • 2. Bra Repair: 
You don’t have to throw away that bra when the underwire pops out. Just apply a piece of moleskin tape (or a regular Band-Aid) to the rip, and you don’t have to worry about getting stabbed in the rib with a rogue wire.

  • 3. Stuck Zipper Solution:
Don’t force that zipper, that will only bust the thing–and replacing a zip is no easy task. If your zipper won’t budge, try rubbing a bit of graphite pencil on the teeth to “grease” it.

  • 10. Fix Suede Scuffs: 
The petroleum jelly won’t work on your suede the way it does on your patent leather. Use an eraser to remove scuffs. You don’t need to buy any fancy suede cleaners and brushes.

Everyone has that annoying pair of pants with the cheaply sewn zipper that just doesn’t stay up. And it is not because they are too small. Instead of replacing the zip, just get a circle zipper pull, or small key ring you can attach to the button.

  • 15. Remove Odors: 
Remember how the CEO of Levi’s told us we should wash our jeans less and put them in the fridge to get rid of any smells? The same thing works for hand wash or dry clean only items too.
