Ever go to a party and realize that you have a stain on your shirt? Or better yet, your strap breaks! Well ladies, have no fear here are some tips that will for those mini crisis.

1. Rub a bar of soap on the teeth of a stuck zipper to help it glide.

2. Reattach a loose button with the metal wire from a twist tie. Peel away the paper, insert the wire through the button and fabric, and twist to secure.

3. Blot out a stain on your collar with a wet sponge or terry-cloth towel (not a paper towel, which can shred), or cover it up with a pretty scarf.

4. Wipe away static cling with a used dryer fabric softener sheet on your garment, or run your hands over a new sheet and lightly go over the fabric.

5. Temporarily fix a fallen hem with masking or double-sided fabric tape to hold up the seam until you can sew it later on.

6. Remove fresh deodorant marks by rubbing them with a wet, well-wrung washcloth or damp towel.

7. Push in a sweater pull with a fine needle or pin through the fabric to the back.

8. Blast away water spots on silk and wool with a gentle steam burst from your iron. Hold it above, not directly on, the fabric.

9. Touch up worn spots and scuffs on leather shoes and bags with a matching permanent marker. Buff well with a paper towel to remove excess that might rub off.

10. Brush up matted, stained suede with a scrub sponge. It should be barely damp – not drippy.
