In today’s daily hack, we give you some fashion tips we feel that every woman should know, from stretching out your small shoes, to removing the fluff off your jerseys and sweaters, and lastly, removing red wine stains from your clothes.

Stretching out your small shoes

Buying a pair of shoes which are a size too small for your feet is so annoying, and returning to the store to swop out the shoes is a tedious task.

Jules has taken to TikTok to share her hack on how she stretches out shoes which are too small for her feet.

In the video, she fills two zip-lock bags with water halfway, and then places each zip lock bag into each shoe. She then put the shoes in the freezer until the zip-lock bags freeze and stretch out each shoe.

Remove sweater and jersey fuzzies

Owning a clothing item for a long period of time may result in the build-up of fuzzies and fluff on your clothes. If you do not have a lint roller, it could be quite difficult to remove the fluff effectively.

Lily Coco has shared a video where she demonstrates how she gets rid of the fluff on her clothes without using a lint roller or or fluff shaver.

In the video, she simply makes use of a classic disposable razor to shave off the fluff and fuzzies off her hoodies.

Get rid of a red wine stain

The VinePair TikTok account has shared their effective hack on how to get rid of red wine stains from your clothes.

In the video, they start off by pouring some white vinegar onto the stain, and then using a cloth to dab up as much of the vinegar and wine as they can.

They then put a few drops of liquid soap onto the stain, as well as some baking soda. They finally pour some vinegar over the soap and baking soda, and then leave it to work its magic for about 15 minutes.

Once they wash the shirt, the stain is gone and the shirt looks good as new.
