There’s nothing worse than putting on a new pair of pantyhose just to find a “shooter” in a couple of minutes. It seems that this is some kind of universal law of meanness, but in fact, you can make these thin products more durable and durable.
1. BUY TIGHTS WITH STRENGTHS
Usually, they are made on toes and around the perineum. Another life hack – to put under the pantyhose thin kapron socks, to create a barrier between the nails and a thin tissue.
2. MOIST SKIN ON FEET
Tighten a thin nylon on a smooth and moisturized skin is much easier than on long unshaven legs.
3. CHOOSE A COUPLE BY SIZE
A big mistake will be trying to pull pantyhose, which you initially are small. At best, they will break in the process of putting on, at worst – right during the important event.
On all packages, there is always a table of sizes. If you get to the border between one and the other, it’s better to buy a couple more.
4. SIGN UP THE NAILS ON HANDS
Any unevenness or broken nails – the enemy of pantyhose number 1. One little clue, and it’s all over. Before pulling tights, make sure that the nails on the hands are trimmed and carefully filed.
Rings and bracelets with large stones are also better to wear after the pantyhose is already in place.
5. LET THE TIGHTS IN THE FREEZER
Yes, you understood correctly. It turns out that freezing pantyhose helps to strengthen the fibers of the fabric, making them less prone to hooks and “arrows”. But you need to freeze according to the rules.
Soak pantyhose in water, then lightly squeeze and put in the freezer overnight. The next day they should gradually thaw at room temperature. Once the pantyhose has dried, they are ready to wear.
6. WEAR THE TIGHTS CORRECTLY: FROM THE SOCKS TO THE FACTORY
Do not stretch pantyhose with your fingers – so you risk tearing them, even despite the perfect manicure. Collect the fabric in the “accordion” and then gently pull from the toe to the heel, from the heel – farther up, to the thigh.
7. CAUTION WITH LIGHTNING
Boots with a zip-fastener are an almost invariable attribute of winter in Russia, but definitely not the best friends of pantyhose. Fasten the zipper slowly, try to keep your finger between the clasp and the cloth.
8. WIT THE VESSEL
Who finds time for hand washing now? But in the case of pantyhose is better to do it. Hand washing is the best way to keep the Capron intact.
If you still decide to entrust the washing of tights to a typewriter, place them in a special laundry bag.
9. STOP THE “ARROW”
Noticing the pantyhose hook, you can stop the “arrow” with a transparent nail polish. He “seals” the hole and prevents a catastrophe. But, of course, it is important that the hole was in a low spot.
