10 simple life hacks!

Getting rid of stains on leather


Just apply a mixture of water and vinegar and gently rub it over the stain.

Keeping jewellery clean


This applies only to the non-precious metal parts of your jewellery. Cover the inside part of a ring with clear nail polish. You’ll never have to worry about getting marks on your fingers again.

Getting rid of oily stains on your clothes


Use baby powder to get rid of the stain.

Rescuing a shrunken t-shirt


Put your shrunken item of clothing into water with some kids’ shampoo (one liter of water for every spoon of shampoo). Leave it to soak for half an hour. Squeeze out the water and place the t-shirt between two towels for ten minutes. Then stretch the item out to its original size, putting something heavy on the edges to keep it stretched, and leave it to dry.

Use a razor to get rid of fluff from your clothes


Stopping jeans from fading


Add half a glass of vinegar to the washing machine to stop dark jeans losing their colour when being washed.

Removing scuff marks from suede shoes


Use an ordinary eraser to clean your suede shoes.

Cleaning the white part of your sneakers


Mix some cleaning solution with baking soda in a bowl, take an old tooth brush and use the solution to thoroughly clean the white rubber parts of your shoes.

Breaking in new shoes


Pour some water into sealable plastic packets, place them inside your shoes and put the shoes in the freezer. When the water freezes, it expands. Take the shoes out of the freezer, wait for the ice to melt a little and take the bags of water out. N.B: this method doesn’t work for patent leather shoes.

To stop the zipper on your jeans from coming undone


Attach the ring from a key ring on the zipper and hook it over the button of your pants!!


Hope you enjoyed it!
