Autumn and winter are the times when women usually wear tights, especially under dresses or skirts. Unfortunately, they are very easily damaged and break quickly. Try a grandmother’s trick that will make your socks much more resistant.
Tights are an essential part of many wardrobes. They are particularly popular during the fall and winter period, when you choose to wear a dress, skirt, or shorts. Although a few decades ago they were considered a kind of luxury product, now they are available not only in specialized stores, but also in almost all boutiques and large outlets.
Unfortunately, this item of clothing is also extremely fragile. Therefore, rather than buying several in a single season, it is worth using this trick to keep them for longer.
To make the tights more resistant, it is advisable to slightly moisten them with water before using them for the first time and place them in the freezer for about an hour. Then take them off and wait for them to dry before putting them back on.
Keep in mind that this procedure only needs to be done once, and the pantyhose will be less likely to loosen or tighten and tear over time.
Another easy way to protect your tights is to spray them with hairspray after wearing them. The varnish will not only harden them, but also make them more resistant.
A reliable way to fix damaged pantyhose is to use clear nail polish to seal the hole and prevent further damage. This simple trick will work in any situation.
If you don’t have nail polish at home, you can use bar soap. However, this solution is less effective than the varnish trick.
With the help of pantyhose, you can successfully polish mirrors, windows and all glass surfaces. This garment does not leave traces or lint.
If you have pet hair on your carpets, dampen the pantyhose with water, put a leg in a brush, and start cleaning.
Thin pantyhose are also perfect for storing onions. They will provide you with a constant supply of air and the vegetables will stay fresh longer. Just put it in the pantyhose.
Small earrings, jewelry, and other small items often fall to the ground and are lost for months. There is an easy way to find them. All you have to do is place the pantyhose over the outlet of the vacuum tube, secure it with a rubber band, and turn on the suction. All the little stray things will be collected by the bottom filter.
