How Freezing Your Tights Will Change Your Whole Freakin' Life
OK, we lied. But you won’t get runs anymore!
Those opaque bad boys are a lifesaver when you are craving Spring in January…if only they stayed run-free for longer than, oh, a day. Good thing there’s a super-easy trick for extending the life of your tights.
You freeze them.
Yes, it sounds crazy, but hear us out: The next time you buy a new pair (and before you wear them), run them under water until they’re damp. Then place them in a plastic bag and freeze overnight. Take them out and give them a day to defrost and thaw out.
You only need to do this once--after that, you’re good to go. The chilly temps firm and strengthen the individual fibers of your tights, making them less susceptible to runs later on.
And you thought your freezer was only meant for green onions and your vodka!
