It may sound it a bit whacky but trust us as this hack really works. All you need to do is to squeeze some ordinary ketchup on a piece of cloth and rub it on the silver, and slowly rub off the ketchup and be ready to be dazzled by the shine of your new cleaned silver jewelry.
8. Protect your hat from makeup transfers.
This goes for all the eternal hat fans all across the globe. Especially, women fans that have to deal with forehead makeup which ruins the front linings of the hat. Now how to save the hat?

9. Use Scotch tape to keep your bra in place.
Having trouble putting your bra stick at the right place especially if you are wearing a halterneck or a tank top? Well here is your answer double sided tapes…yes, you read it right. Place pieces of scotch tape at the back strap of your back and simply press your dress on top of it. Place the scotch tape on the sides of the breasts to keep your bra secure at the right position without giving a sneak- a- boo in case of a wider rimmed top.
10. Waterproof your shoes with beeswax.
You are a lover of trekking and hiking and keep getting your shoes drenched in the cascades which are super annoying as it takes ages to dry. Here is the solution, take a dry canvas or tennis shoes and liberally rub beeswax on its surface and then use a hair dryer to help it penetrate the surface. This will make your shoes super water resistant as well. But it would also block the pores and would not let our shoes transpire sweat so avoid this technique in summers.
11. Freeze your tight shoes to stretch them.
It may Sound counterintuitive but it really works! To stretch your tight pumps or stilettos, fill a waterproof zip lock and fill it with water and seal them carefully. Put these bags in the shoe crevices and stack them into your freezer, till the latter is frozen solid. Now put on your shoes and check the fit and you would be surprised how comfortable they are.
12. Apply nail polish to avoid green marks from a ring.
It’s usually some metal rings which are snug in your fingers turn the skin green or bluish black when trying to remove it. It looks scary, but actually, it’s a simple chemical reaction between acids and sweat of your skin reacting with the metal in the ring. In order to permanently remove this problem, just coat the ring with the transparent coat for clear nail enamel which would act as a barrier between the skin and the ring and the metal would never turn the color of the finger.
