Quick fixes you can do at home right now.
-To prevent dark jeans from fading, add 1/2 cup of distilled vinegar during the last washing cycle. If they aren't that dirty, just soak them in water and vinegar and hang dry. The smell will go away once they are completely dry.
-Did you spot some deodorant marks on your clothes just as you are heading out? Grab a pair of old pantyhose or a dryer sheet and gently rub the mark and voila!
-Rub candle wax or a bar of soap on stuck zippers to "grease" it and get it moving again.
-Loose button but no needle and thread? Apply clear nail polish over the existing threads to keep it in place. This also works for snags in panty hose or tights!
-Clean your patent leather shoes with Windex for a nice shine.
Get rid of static cling with a light douse of hairspray, or use a dryer sheet.
Mix water and lemon juice to put on garments right before you wash them to get rid of sweat stains.
For oil-based stains, pour some talcum or baby powder on top to soak up the spot.
