    Fashion Emergencies and DIYs

    1. Gum on Jeans

    Nothing is more frustrating than trying to remove a piece of gum you mistakenly sat on. Put the affected pair in a plastic bag and keep it in the freezer. Freezing would make it easier to remove the gum.

    2. Stuck zipper

    Zipping up your pants or jeans that are stuck can be a real struggle. To make it easier, try applying lubricants on the teeth of the zipper, like bar soaps, lip balms, petroleum jelly, candle wax, etc. These would give just the right amount of moisture to remove friction.

    3. Pills on clothes

    These tiny balls have their way of disfiguring your favourite sweater or pair of pants. To make them look brand new, use a razor blade or a shaving stick to scrape it GENTLY. This is to avoid making a hole while removing the pills.

    4. Loose Tucks

    Having the perfect tuck-in with your outfit is not impossible. Try tucking in your shirt/blouse into your underwear. This would make it firm and let it stay that way for a long period compared to when it's only tucked into your skirt/pant trousers. 

    5. Soreness on the heels

    Use bandaids to protect your heels from the impact of wearing shoes for a long time.

    6. Broken zipper pull

    Try using Bobby pins or paper clips to pull the zipper up or down. These hacks would always be of use in different scenarios, as certain fashion situations don't always immediately need a professional hand.
