Sometimes even a small thing can spoil a mood, especially if it’s connected with one’s appearance. Like in the case of a spot on a blouse, a shrunken sweater, or a faded shirt, it might seem that everything has gone wrong and that nothing can be resurrected. However, experienced homemakers know simple and accessible secrets that will help to reanimate spoiled items and bring them back into your wardrobe.
Bright Side studied tips for restoring clothes and is excited to share them with our readers.
14. Removing grime from suede shoes
You need to rub steel wool hard against the stain. Perhaps you’ll have to do the same with the rest of the shoe to keep it even.
An ordinary dish sponge will help absorb leftover water if your shoes are wet.
13. Preventing a zipper from unzipping
When using a zipper for a long time, it might get loose and start to unzip. In order to prevent this from happening, you can apply some colorless nail polish or hairspray to it.
12. Removing the unpleasant smells from shoes
Oftentimes, the nasty smell coming from your shoes is caused by bacteria which starts to spread an unpleasant odor when it comes into contact with sweat. In order to get rid of the smell, you need to put them somewhere that has a low temperature. If you don’t have the option of leaving the shoes on a balcony or outside, you can put them in a plastic bag and into a freezer. Shoes should stay there for 12-24 hours.
11. Removing white deodorant stains from dark clothes
When using deodorant frequently, it can leave white stains on dark clothes that can be removed with regular wet wipes. Simply wipe the area of the clothes with the stains and they will disappear.
10. Restoring faded clothes
Colored clothes might look faded after several runs through the washing machine. In order to make a bright item keep its color longer, you can use white vinegar or regular salt. Vinegar will be good for synthetic fabrics while adding 2-3 tablespoons of salt to the washing powder will restore the colors of natural fabrics.
9. Preventing a sweater from itching, losing its color, and being eaten by moths
A wool sweater is a product that sometimes causes inconvenience and requires delicate care. If you place a folded sweater into a plastic bag and into a freezer, it will pill and shed less. Moreover, low temperatures kill the larvae of moths. You can get rid of itchiness by wetting the sweater and putting it into the freezer for 10 hours. After that, you’ll need to de-freeze it in warm water and dry it off.
8. Bringing back snow white color to underwear
Boric acid can help to get rid of yellow stains on clothing and bring back the snow white color they once had before the many washes you’ve put them through. You’ll need to use 60 g of boric acid with 4 liters of water for heavily soiled items, and 20 g of the acid with 10 liters of water for a more gentle wash. Soak it for 2 hours. It’s not recommended to use this method too often.
7. Getting rid of static clinging on clothing
Static clinging can be stopped by using a metal item. In order to stop clothes from clinging to the body, you’ll need to loop it through a metal hanger before putting it on. You can also use a clothespin by attaching it to the inner part of the clothing item or rubbing a thimble against the whole area of the item.
6. Removing a fresh berry stain
This simple trick works only if the berry stain is fresh. You’ll need to stretch the cloth and pour boiling water on the dirty surface until the stain disappears. Experienced homemakers note that removing berry stains from natural fabrics is more difficult than from synthetic items.
5. Removing oil fuel stains
Fir oil can help remove oil fuel stains. You should take 2 cotton pads or sponges, place one pad under the stain, and rub the stain with the second pad soaked in oil. If the stain didn’t disappear with the first attempt, try again. After doing this, you’ll need to wash the item.
4. Removing a mildew smell
Things that have been lying in a closet for a long time smell bad. In order to get rid of this mildew smell, you’ll need to dilute the alcohol with water in the ratio of 1: 2 and apply this solution to the clothing with a spray bottle.
3. If a white item ends up in a washing cycle with colored clothing
Potassium permanganate can help if you mistakenly wash white items with colored items. You should solute 3-5 crystals of potassium permanganate in a glass of water (the solution should have a light pink color). After that, pour the solution into 9 liters of hot water and add 1/3 of the grated laundry soap bar. Soak the colored white clothes in this solution for 50 minutes and wash them normally.
2. Restoring shrunken clothes
This method works well with knitted items. Add some baby shampoo or hair conditioner to warm water. You can also add some fabric softener to it. Soak a shrunken item in this solution for at least 30 minutes.
1. Removing burned ironing stains
The damaged part of the clothes should be wiped or ironed with a cloth moistened with hydrogen peroxide.
