Fix a flip-flop on the fly
If the toe post on your flip-flop pops out in the middle of your stroll down the boardwalk, fix it in a pinch using items you already have in your beach bag. Stop the post from tearing again out by slipping a safety pin, bobby pin, or bread clip above the circular stopper that sits on the bottom of the sandal. If those options fail, hold a lighter or match to the bottom of the toe post and melt the shoe back together. Here’s how to pick flip-flops that won’t hurt your feet, according to foot doctors.
Remove a stain from white jeans
Getting a stain on a pair of crisp white jeans is almost inevitable. For coffee and grass stains, rub a mixture of concentrated dish soap and warm water onto the stain, advises Madewell. For ink, try glycerin-based soap and warm water. For a red wine stain, use hydrogen peroxide and warm water. Rinse the stain in hot water (about 85 degrees) and allow to air dry until you’re sure the stain is removed.
