DIY Retailer Clothing Repair Secrets #tidytip
1. The Snag Nab-it
This is a miracle worker and something every single woman should own.
It’s a needle that has a jagged end (similar to a file).
When you snag a sweater, blouse or any other type of clothing, you simply insert the needle straight through the snag down into the fabric and pull the thread through to the inside.
It snags, nabs and pulls the loose threads through returning your garment to its previous state of looking undamaged.
The Dritz(R) Snag Nab-It Tool For Knits can be bought online at Amazon or at craft stores like Hobby Lobby for $2.50-$7.
2. Deodorant Marks
Have you ever put on a dark shirt in hurry and freaked out because you got deodorant all over the outside?
If you keep a piece of foam handy you can simply rub the dry piece of foam over the deodorant marks and they should dust right off. I keep a piece of foam stored in my deodorant drawer.
3. Perfect Folding
If you are really OCD about folding clothes all you need to get a perfect fold is a legal size clip board.
If you don’t have a legal size clip board grab a large piece of sturdy cardboard, foam-board or a Christmas gift shirt box like me!
1. Button shirt front and then lay shirt out flat button side down. Lay legal size gift box, cardboard or clip board just below shirt collar on back.
2. Fold shirt sleeve across the back of the shirt keeping it snug and flat against the cardboard edges.
3.Fold the sleeve back making it line up perfectly with the edge of the box and the shirt.
4. Repeat Step 2 on opposite side.
5. Repeat step 3 on opposite side.
6. Grab the bottom of the shirt and end of sleeves, keeping them together and fold upward until they are snug against the bottom of the box.
7. Your shirt should be snugly folded around all edges of the box.
8. Slide cardboard out carefully.
9. Step back and admire your perfectly folded shirt!
This tip I actually got from my mother-in-law.
If you always have a small pack of Wet One’s brand wipes there is a good bet that you will always be able to treat a stain fast and effectively. I use these a lot for makeup stains. I recommend testing the wipe on an inconspicuous spot of your clothing first in case they cause fading or discoloration on your garment. I have never had a problem with them discoloring my clothing. They are an inexpensive quick fix for me.
5. Fuzzy Fabric Balls On Clothes
Some types of fabrics begin to “ball” up in places when worn regularly.
These fabric balls tend to appear on clothing in areas of high friction like arm pits or places where you purse or backpack rub.
One of the best tools I found for taking these off are sweater buzzers. They are little handheld shavers that turn on and rub around in the area and it “shaves” off the little balls.
You can usually find the at stores like Walmart or online.
