If you get an oil stain on your favourite handbag, coat the stain with baby powder and let it stand overnight. By morning, the stain should be gone. If a bit still remains, repeat the process until the stain is completely gone.

Panty lines are not okay! Every woman should invest in nude, seamless underwear.

Use hairspray to remove a lipstick stain.

When in doubt, always choose the smaller denim size, since jeans stretch with wear.

Wrap an empty bottle of your favourite perfume in a handkerchief and tuck it into your underwear drawer for a subtle scent.

To clean dirt off suede, remove the crust from a piece of bread and allow it to become stale. Gently rub dirt and stains with the edge of the stale bread, and they’ll disappear. To de-scuff suede, use an eraser or nail file.

Invest in silk or satin pillowcases to keep your hair from breaking during the night. (They also keep your skin looking smoother than rough cotton cases!)

Thin necklaces always get tangled now and then, hence to avoid this, try storing them in plastic straws, where the necklace will hold its shape and thus remain detangled.

Did your new pair of jeans turn your hands blue? Wash the new jeans with salt, which would set the dye of the jeans and also prevent fading.

Rub deodorant stain out with a pair of jeans or anything else that’s denim. The rough material of the jeans will take the deodorant mark out of your shirt, so it’ll look good as new.
