I seem to get holes in all my favorite cloths. Have you noticed how something you hate lasts forever, and you sure aren't going to bother mending them.
My #1 Most Valuable Tip
for Clothing Rescue
Everyone has hundreds of dollars worth of Faded Black Jeans and
They are always the ones that are just the right style to go with that particular outfit. It would cost a fortune to replace them, even if you could find something that worked just as well.
Collect a Few Faded Black Items and throw them into a Black Dye Bath and they will be fresh and Black again like new.
*Use lots of dye, you want as deep a black as possible.
The dye will not over power another colour. For instance a pink garment dyed black will still have the pink undertones.
There are some cloths that I would like to last a little longer.
There are other garments that I think that I would like a whole lot better redesigned to make them different and special.
Tip #2... Everyone has been frying food and made the mistake of wearing a favourite top without an apron. Instantly as soon as you see the grease spots, slather them with dish soap (for hand washing) and let them soak for a while.
Then hand wash, rubbing the spots gently. Don't overwork or you can remove some of the dye a create a light spot.
Every garment is unique and requires a different redesign idea.
I am sharing a few examples of things I've done and talk about why I made some of the choices I did and how they turned out.
