9 Brilliant Clothing Hacks Every Girl Should Know

Silas & Grace

Whether you want to fix a few pieces of old clothing or new clothing that just doesn’t fit quite right, there’s always a great hack to help you out. I love clothing hacks and tips, because they come in handy right when you’re about to throw your favorite shirt or pants out. And down below, I’ve made a small but super helpful roundup of some great hacks for saving your clothes.

A few of them I found from lists done by awesome bloggers and other tutorials I’ve found done by the original blogger themselves. But either way, you can check out my favorite hacks, and then head to the bottom to click through to the source and see either the rest of the hack lists or tutorials.

Get Rid of Makeup Smudges with Shaving Cream


Found from The Krazy Coupon Lady: See Source Below

Alright, so I really love this find from The Krazy Coupon Lady’s list of clothing hacks. Apparently shaving cream is a sure fire way of getting rid of those annoying makeup smudges. I wear foundation regularly, so this should come in handy.

Never Lose Socks With a Lingerie Bag


Found from Buzzfeed: See Source Below

So apparently, lingerie bags aren’t just for washing lingerie (I didn’t even know these things existed in the first place), but apparently, they’re a great way to keep your socks together. Now that’s a helpful hack.

Use a Safety Pin to Reinsert a Drawstring


Found from Buzzfeed: See Source Below

Now I love my hoodies, but I really hate it when the draw string comes out or gets displaces. But an easy trick is to attach a safety pin to the end of the string to help pull it back through. Now you have no reason to cry when you have a hack like this.

Cover Old Scuffs by Creating Caps on Your Flats


Found from One Good Thing by Jillee: See Source Below

I’m a flats kind of person, which means I wear out my shoes fast. I’ll wear sneakers when I need to, but they’re go-to shoes. So this hack on revamping an old pair of flats is a great way to save money, but give your shoes a new look

Unstuck a Stuck Zipper with Crayon


Found from Buzzfeed: See Source Below

Apparently, if your zipper is stuck, all you need to do is rub crayon on either side of the zipper. Then it  should become unstuck. Seems simple enough.

Remove Sweat Stains Naturally


Found from Noted List: See Source Below

Apparently, just vinegar, baking soda, salt, and hydrogen peroxide, are all you need to get rid of sweat stains. So no need to throw out your favorite shirt when you probably have all the ingredients to get rid of the stains in your house already.

Unshrink a Shirt


Found from Destination Decoration: See Source Below

Water, hair conditioner (or baby shampoo), and towels. It’s that simple.. seriously.

Make Your Favorite Jeans Your Size


Found from Buzzfeed: See Source Below

Now you have no excuse not to buy those awesome pair of jeans that are two sizes too small. And if you’ve gained a little bit of weight, no problem, this hack is just right for that too!

Prevent Your Jeans from Fading


Found from Buzzfeed: See Source Below

I’m a big believer in black jeans. They go with everything and make you look pretty awesome. But the one thing I don’t like about them is that they fade way too easily. Thankfully though, there’s a hack for that.

You can get some white vinegar here.

There are plenty of ways to save money with your clothes, even when it looks like throwing them away is the only option. You can keep some of your most favorite outfits for years with just the right hack. Even to the point where they become unfashionable and your future kids start to make fun of them. You really don’t have to give up your favorite pair of jeans or sweater.

Now if you have any favorite clothing hacks yourself, let me know in the comments below. I’d love to hear about them!

  1. The Boo has a lot of sweaty white-t’s, and his Mom suggested that we soak them overnight in bleach, baking soda and vinegar (did not know to use hydrogen peroxide) & the sweaty pits faded. I will add peroxide next time. With our newborn – we definitely use the lingerie bag & it works!


  2. A Sharpie marker is like a magic fix! If you accidenyly spill bleach or spray your shirt or whatever with cleaning solution…a Sharpie in the same color fills the area in. Not for large bleached ateas, but small spots fix like a dream!

  3. My husband does laundry at our house! We both do laundry. I wash my clothes and linens and he washes his clothes and the towels. He even does housework when I’m busy or at work. That way when everything is done, we both can relax or take in dinner and a movie.

  4. Great tips…I especially love the one about giving flats a new life by painting the tips. What a great way to keep a favorite pair of shoes around a little longer! 🙂

    • Hey Ronald! I totally agree! I only phrased it that way because my blog is primarily geared towards women (the title is meant to grab the attention of other women). I hope this makes sense. 🙂

  5. Remove deodorant by rubbing the same material together. No need to wet anything just grab bottom of shirt and rub part of shirt where deodorant is and whala no white marks… saw on MTV yeeeeaaars ago.

  6. Graphite from a standard pencil will also work great on zippers or other tight places that have friction. Simply rub the pencil lead across the metal where the friction is happening

  7. I dye my favorite clothes with Rit Dye or bleach & change the color of something that I don’t like. It takes practice & dedication, as you have to reset the washing machine a few times before you rinse, then you have to bleach the machine right after, so the dye gets washed off.
