Holding the fashionista crown in my group of nearest and dearest can be tough, but someone's gotta do it! Even if I do invest more time & money than the average girl on the latest trends, I still have my favorite wardrobe staples hanging in the walk-in! Instead of going out and buying new every time a mishap takes place, I simply freshen up those favorite items with these simple wardrobe hacks!
1. Shine Those Dull Leather Pumps With Body Lotion.
Ready to slay the night away only to realize your favorite heels are looking rather dingy & dull? Take a bottle of body or even facial lotion & a dry wash cloth and shine those babies right up! Your heels will be back to looking just as killer as they were the day you bought them. Well almost ;-)
2. Get Rid Of That Embarrassing Deodorant Stain With A Baby Wipe.
I can't be the only one notorious for getting deodorant on everything? Getting ready for date night without a giant deodorant stain appearing out of nowhere on my little black dress just doesn't happen! Save yourself an outfit change by grabbing one of your munchkins baby wipes & wipe that stain right up.
3. Get Rid Of That Lingering Campfire Stench Out Of Your Favorite Jeans By Freezing Them!
A good ole' campfire is a summer favorite of mine! However, you know what I hate? That lingering fire stench that seems to never get out of clothing. I read an article in Cosmo a few years back stating to take a ziplock freezer bag & freeze your stinky jeans over night after a good wash & that stench would rid itself. I'm happy to report that it really works man! It really really works! No more campfire stinky jeans for this gal thanks to Cosmos tip!
4. Snag Your Stockings With Your Engagement Ring? Stop That Run With Clear Nail Polish!
These days I'm prepared for such situations since I buy stockings in bulk. Black stocking are a legit staple of mine during the winter! However, I spent my college party girl years not knowing what the word prepared even ment. I would snag my stockings all the time with my rings & even nails, leaving ridiculous runs all over the place. The easiest solution to a stocking run is grabbing a bottle of clear nail polish & painting the run with the polish. The polish will at least get your stockings through the night so you can continue to party the night away run free!
5. Say Peace Out To That Annoying Foundation Stain On Your White T-Shirt With Shaving Cream!
Show of hands, how many of you have come home after a long day of kicking butt at the office only to get your favorite shirt covered in foundation while changing into your comfies?!?! This happens to me more often than I would like to admit & thankfully shaving cream is there to save the day! Just dab some shaving cream into that foundation stain & say peace out stain!
6. Air Dry Your Bras Instead Of Throwing Them Into The Dryer!
This is obviously a no-brainer, but I kid you not half those chicks complaining about their favorite bras underwire stabbing them to death are the same girls who do not air dry their bras! Take care of your bra by keeping it dryer-free and I promise it will last long enough for you to feel your investment in such a garment was worth it!
7. Stop Unnecesary Itching By Switching To An All Nautral/Dye Free Detergent!
How many times have you scratched the day away due to a piece of clothing irritating the crap out of your skin?! For the longest time I assumed I accidently poured too much detergent into the wash only to discover years later it was the detergents I was using, not that I was using too much! Dyes & chemicals are well known factors when it comes to skin irritation. Once I ditched all the nasty chemical loaded detergents for more natural options, bam! No more embarrassing scratching moments in public! I can now go my day without people thinking I have the chicken pox or some deadly skin disease!
Speaking of all-natural laundry detergents, Tide purclean™ is my choice when it comes to all natural options. Not only is it dye free & all that fabulous jazz, it's also the first bio-based detergent! And yes, with the same amazing cleaning power we all know from the Tide brand!
Tide purclean™ consists of 65% bio-based ingredients, and is also made with 100% renewable electricity. Tide purclean™ is also made at a zero manufacturing waste to landfill site. And if that's not enough awesomeness, it’s certified by the USDA BioPreferred Program.
Basically live itch free while feeling fab about lessening your carbon footprint all while fighting those stains!
A total win-win!
Thankfully for this Target addict, I was able to pick up my Tide purclean™ on my most recent Target trip while it just happened to be on sale! I even scored extra savings by using the $1.00 off neckhanger coupon that was located on the bottle and my additional 5% savings by using Target's Cartwheel mobile app. Both of these savings are available now through July 30, 2016 so you better head to Target now so you don't miss out!
