1. Stop your jumpers from shedding by sticking them in the freezer overnight. If you have a cashmere or wool top that won't stop shedding, toss it in the freezer before each wear.

2. Put your jeans in a plastic bag and stick them in the freezer at night to remove bad odours. The freezer will kill most of the odour-causing bacteria, and you don't have to worry about the dye in your denim fading from overzealous washing.

3. Spray a small amount of vodka on your clothes to eliminate strong odours. If you don't have time to wash a shirt before wearing it again but it has a strong, lingering smell, just spray on some vodka and let it dry. The alcohol will kill odour-causing bacteria.

4. Fix foundation stains with a little bit of shaving cream. If you take off your shirt and accidentally smudge your makeup on the collar, just wipe a dollop of shaving cream on the spot to pretreat it before tossing it in the wash.

5. Tighten your sunglasses with a dab of clear nail polish. If the arm of your sunglasses is a bit loose and you don't have a tiny screwdriver handy, paint a small bit of polish over the hinge to temporarily tighten it.

6. Paint clear nail polish over a loose button thread to temporarily stop it from unraveling. No need to learn how to sew on a button just yet.

7. Clean stubborn dirt off suede shoes with a nail file. Just buff it right out.

8. Scrub off water stains on leather boots with a soft toothbrush and vinegar. If your boots are ruined from water, snow, salt, or all of the above, dip a soft-bristled toothbrush in white vinegar and gently rub to remove the stain.

9. Mend dull or scratched leather shoes with moisturiser. If you don't have shoe polish (Who does?), grab a towel and rub your shoes with a bit of lotion to bring them back to life.

10. Fix underwire that's poking out of your bra with a patch of adhesive moleskin.
