Get rid of armpit stains with lemon juice and baking soda. Both are natural bleachers and easy to use. All you have to do is squeeze a lemon (or lemon juice from a bottle) and water onto the stain and rub it in. Or to get out a tougher stain, you can create a baking soda and water paste and apply it to the armpit stain. Then just let it sit for around an hour and toss it into the washing machine. It’s as simple as that!
Have makeup stains on some of your awesome clothing? Easy, just apply some shaving cream before washing.
If you have a cute-shoes-but-too-tight-for-my-feet problem, all you have to do is wear large socks while blow drying the area that’s too tight.

31 DIY Hacks for Fixing Ruined Clothes
For oil stains that are still there after a wash, this is an easy fix. All you have to do is take a small piece of cardboard and place it on the other side of the the clothing (where the oil stain is), and spray WD-40. Then put some baking soda over the wet area (more than you think you’ll need) and rub it in with a toothbrush (old or new) for a couple minutes. Dust off the baking soda into a sink and repeat once more. Then dust it off again, put some Dawn dish soap on it and throw it in the wash. Done.
De-wrinkle spray for clothing is apparently a thing now. All you need is 1 tsp of conditioner, 1 Tbsp of white vinegar, and 2 cups of water. Put all of the ingredients into a spray bottle (which you can get pretty cheap at the store), shake and put it on a mist setting. Lightly spray wrinkled areas, lay it down smoothed, and let it dry for a little bit (should just be damp). Then you’re ready to go!
