What are the quickest solutions for these wedding attire problems?
1 A STUCK ZIPPER First of all, don’t panic. Gently and slowly wiggling and trying to pull apart the stuck fabric around the zipper usually fixes it. Don’t use excessive force, or you may end up with a broken zipper!
PAINFUL BLISTERS ON FEET Blisters worsen with moisture and friction. Plasters may help but be sure to drain and air the blisters when you can. You can also apply aloe vera gel, which has an anti-inflammatory function, for quicker recovery. To avoid blisters, get used to the new shoes at least a few days before the wedding.
STAINS ON MY WEDDING GOWN Fabric-cleaning solution, available at major supermarkets, does the trick for most stains. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing at the spot—this may spread or force the stain deeper into the fabric. Instead, using a white cloth, blot any moisture first, then use a clean cloth to gently blot in the cleaning solution.
DIRTY OR DAMAGED HEM OF MY GOWN This can’t be fixed on the spot, but is usually hidden from sight if your gown has a lot of fabric. When possible, send it to a tailor before washing. Alternatively, clean the hem yourself by soaking it in a tub with a gentle, clear-coloured detergent for an hour. Then, scrub off dirt using a rag soaked with water from the tub, and hang the dress to dry.
