4 Genius Hacks for your Winter Clothing Problems

Instantly Clean Salty Boots 

Salt stained boots can be easily cleaned with an all-natural solution of vinegar and water. Mix 1 tbsp. of vinegar with 1 cup of water and stir well. Use a cloth to rub the solution on your boots and watch the stain disappear. This hack is safe for leather and suede shoes but may require more vinegar in your mix. If you find the stains are not coming out, slowly add more vinegar until you get the right balance. 

 

Stop Runs in Your Pantyhose 

 If you spot a hole or a run starting, put clear nail polish around the circle, or at the top and bottom ends of the run to stop it from spreading. Strong hold hairspray can also help, but only until they hit the wash again. 

 

Zap Static Cling In Seconds 

Avoid static cling in one swipe of a dryer sheet. You can run it over your hair, over your hat, skirt, shirt…whatever cling has decided to hit, a dryer sheet will help to eliminate it. 

 

Never Have Wet Socks Again 

 Line your boots with plastic bags and never suffer through wet feet again. Instead of grocery bags, which are a bit large and will be bulky in your boots, use plastic Ziploc or sandwich bags, which will fit easier. It may help you last outside until you are ready to come in!
