Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! Here’s your tip.

Stop a stocking run with soap.

Everyone knows you can use clear nail polish to keep a run in your stocking from getting worse (you knew that, right?), but you can also use soap.

It’s so much more convenient when you’re out and about. I don’t have room in my tiny evening clutch to carry a bottle of nail polish just in case, but there’s always a ladies’ room around. Just dab some liquid soap around the run or rub it with a moistened bar of soap — those bitty hotel bars are the perfect size. Let the soap dry and continue on your merry way! It’s not as permanent a fix as nail polish, but it can save your evening.

I’ve also heard you can use hair spray, but I’ve never tested it.

M2Like this tip? There are lots more in Miss Mina Murray’s Little Book of Better Burlesque.
