Red wine spill, fake tan stains, nail polish on the carpet? We’ve got 7 laundry hacks for your clothes and home to make life so much easier!
Save your dry-cleaning dollars and buy a cocktail instead with these how-to tips on clean-ups.
Sick of sleeping on ratty old sheets or bath towels? The Tanzee is a fake tan sheet protector that keeps bronzer on your skin and off your linen. Always handy when you have a dude like this sleeping over.
Save a wedge of lemon from last night’s cocktail party to get rid of armpit stains (we’re looking at you sweaty dancing queen). Mix with baking soda and apply to stains for around 45 minutes before washing as normal.
The Nail File Trick
Suede boots are hot. Dirty suede, not so much. Scotch-guarding has limitations, which is where the humble nail file comes in. A gentle rub with a regular nail file will remove stubborn grit obtained by nights out pounding the pavement.
Blood stains: they happen to the best of us. On the couch, on your jeans, we all get caught sometimes. Ammonia or hydrogen peroxide on a cotton bud will get out most blood stains.
Red wine stains
Red wine on your new blazer is a sure-fire way to kill your Friday-afternoon-drinks-buzz. Get your buzz back by placing the item over an empty bowel and dabbing away excess liquid. Then season with salt and sprinkle with water before drizzling with boiling water. Viola!
Nail polish stains
Had a boozy night in with the squad recently? Did you get all girly and paint each other’s nails? Did your drunko friend spill said nailpolish on your carpet? No worries.Grab the hairspray and spritz it on the spill. Rub with a cloth or sponge and watch the magic happen. Pucker your rosy pout because this hack also works on lipstick stains.
That nail colour hit the tile or laminate? Prob solved…
Kiss the breeze
OK, so air kisses don’t happen in the laundry on the reg. But over-caked faces (yours and BFF baes) are a fash faux pas. Just look at your used-to-be white collars and smudged sleeves. Avoid cheek-to-cheek action with a well-practiced Euro-style air kiss. No smudge. No tidy up!
