Smalljoys has collected some fashion hacks that cautious people will find handy.
1. Get rid of stains on shoes.
If you’ve had a party and your favorite suede shoes are covered with stains, try using micellar water to get rid of them.
2. Avoid stretching your clothes on hangers.
If you need to hang a sweater in a closet, do it the way the picture above shows. This way, you won’t wrinkle or stretch it.
3. Keep the shape of your boots.
In order to prevent high boots from deforming, keep a fun pool noodle inside them.
4. Preventing unpleasant smells from dirty clothes while on a trip
When you travel a lot, dirty clothes can pile up in your suitcase. In order to avoid the unpleasant smell, put a bar of soap inside a plastic bag along with the clothes.
