Tantalizing Tips for a Tuesday

Before you wear a new garment, put a little clear nail polish on the front and back of each button. Buttons will stay on longer when their threads are sealed.
Zippers won't stick if you rub them with the edge of a bar of soap.

To remove a crease, sponge the material with white vinegar and press with a warm iron.

Nail polish remover removes tar and grease from white leather shoes
White shoe polish will apply more evenly if you rub the shoes with a raw potato or rubbing alcohol before polishing

White shoe polish won't smear if you spray the shoe with hair spray after it is dry

Vinegar and water will remove salt stains from shoes and boots

New white canvas shoes will stay that way if you spray them heavily with starch
