It may not be chilly stocking weather, but how good are you going to feel going into next stocking season knowing how to avoid ladders.
It’s simple and will probably (hopefully) change your life. Or at least your stocking’s life expectancy.
When you're shopping for stockings, make sure you buy good quality. Then when you get home - before wearing them, put them in the freezer and freeze them.
"Freezing your tights is a quirky, yet budget-savvy way to help keep your tights longer, [and stay] run-free, lint-free and vibrant in colour. It's definitely a trick to try!" celebrity stylist Denise Caldwell told Today.
Yup, freeze your stockings and they'll last longer. Here's how:
Get your stockings and take them out of their packaging or remove cardboard tag. Run them under water until they're damp. Put the damp stockings in to a plastic ziplock bag and put the stocking-filled bag in the freezer over night. Take them out of the freezer and give them a day to defrost and dethaw before you put them on.
