Hello gorgeous! How has your week been going? Mine is going well, considering Monday was my Friday and I am currently vacationing in California!
I am so glad you stopped by the blog today because today I am giving you 5 wardrobe hacks every girl needs to know! I know you have been there… you go to put on your favorite sweater, and immediately put it away because of the awful peeling. Or you put on your go-to jeans and can’t help but notice how they have lost their shape/color! It is totally no fun. Let’s get started!
HACK #1 – DON’T WASH YOUR BLUE JEANS
I know, I know… this may sound really gross to some people. I really try to refrain from washing my blue jeans as much as possible. The more you wash your jeans, the sooner they loose shape and have faded color. If I get something on them, I just try and spot clean and I push off washing them until I absolutely have to. If your jeans are starting to smell, put them in a gallon ziploc bag and stick them in the freezer overnight. In the morning the stench will be gone. I have a pair of jeans that I wear when I know I will be getting dirty and they will need wash. I save all of my nice jeans for just regular daily activities. If you don’t believe me, the CEO of Levis explained why you shouldn’t wash your jeans here.
HACK #2 – USE DRYER SHEET FOR DEODORANT STAINS
I always HATED when I would put on deodorant, put my shirt on, then end up with a huge deodorant stain on my dark shirt! Those suckers are tough too! No matter what you do they just do not want to come off. Using a dryer sheet takes these babies right off like they were never there.
HACK #3 – SHAVING CREAM REMOVES MAKEUP STAINS
This honestly works like a charm! I usually do my makeup before I get dressed, so when I am pulling my shirt over my head sometimes my makeup gets on it too… and it’s devastating! :( Luckily there is an easy fix! Just apply some shaving cream to the stained area, scrub a little, and the makeup is gone!
HACK #4 – USE A HAIRDRYER AND SOCKS FOR SMALL SHOES
I am a huge online shopper, so a lot of times I just order my regular size in shoes and hope they fit. Most of the time they do, but sometimes they are just a little too snug! The first time this happened to me I was so sad because I loved the pair of shoes and they had no other sizes left. I was determined to make them fit, so I started to do some research. I read that if you wore a thick pair of socks, put the shoes on and then start blow drying, they will stretch! I was amazed that this actually worked! Now, whenever I have shoes that are just a bit too small, I just use this hack and the problem is solved!
HACK #5 – USE A RAZOR FOR PEELING SWEATERS
Peeling sweaters are just no fun. It is so frustrating to have the little fuzz everywhere and I feel like it makes the sweater look cheap… even if it’s not! Whenever my sweaters start to peel, I use a clean razor and lightly run it over the fabric. It removes almost all of the fuzz and it doesn’t ruin the sweater either! Win!
HACK #6 – SEW ELASTIC ON GAPING JEANS
Whenever I venture out and buy jeans from a different brand, they usually have a big gap at the waist. For the longest time I had jeans that I would constantly have to pull up all day long. I got so frustrated with doing this, so I had my sister sew a piece of elastic at the waist of my jeans that had this issue, and then they fit!
I hope you enjoyed today’s post and are able to use a few of these tips! What are some wardrobe hacks that you use? I would love to hear them!
