I'm Jeannie Mai and have you ever been in a fix? If you're out and you find yourself in a real fix, try one of these tips. Stuck zippers can be a real hassle, so try rubbing a bar of soap or a wax candle on to the problem area. With a little effort, the zipper should totally come free.
And a loose button can quickly become a lost button if you don't think fast. So just dab the top of the button with a little, clear nail-polish to prevent it from completely falling off.
Pilling sweaters make you look drab. Don't just pull the linen off yourself like a monkey. Rub a piece of Velcro on to the fabric to remove those unattractive loose balls. Now, snag your favorite sweater, step away from the snag with your hands up. Do not cut or pull the snag, it'll result in an unraveled mesh. So instead use a close pen to poke the thread through to the back of the sweater, remove the pilling and walk away perfect.
