5 style hacks no one told you about

Haven’t we all had fashion fails? A cloth fading, getting stained but that’s not a reason to get disheartened. Here are five smart clothing hacks no one told you about but you wish you’d know! Read on and don’t fret the next time you’re in a fashion emergency. You can thank us later!

1. Remove make-up marks from clothes
While wearing or changing your clothes, you can easily stain your clothes with your make-up. For this situation, you can obviously use make-up remover to get rid of the make-up smudges. But for tougher foundation and lip colours, you can use a shaving cream. Spray a little bit of it on the spot and let it stay for 5-10 minutes. This way the stain will dissolve easily and you can wash it off with cold water.

2. Don’t let your denim fade
No one likes it when their favourite jeans or luxe denim jacket fades. To avoid this, wash your denim pieces inside-out in cold water. And, just in case you want to fade your denim pieces, just wash them in hot water.

3. How to clean suede
When it comes to suede, cleaning this tricky fabric is not that easy! To clean off the dirt, just use a crust of a bread and allow it to become stale. Now use this and rub it on the stains to get rid of them. You can also use a nail filer or an eraser to do the same.

4. Remove oil stains
Don’t you just hate big oily stains on your favourite clothes? The one way you can remove them is to use baby powder. Put some baby powder on the stain and let it stay overnight. Now, check in the morning if the stain is still there. If it is, repeat the process until it goes off.

5. Don’t have an iron available?
If you have a fashion emergency and need to fix your wrinkled and crushed clothes, you can use a blow dryer. Just sprinkle some water on your clothes and use a blow dryer to get rid of the creases. For neater edges, you can even use a hair straightener.
