Monsoon Hacks Everyone Should Know!
When the rain pours, all you want to do is relish a cup of tea with some hot & steamy deep fried snacks. But this pictures starts getting blurry with the slightest mention of getting out..
Here’s a few hacks that will make life much easier this monsoon.
1. Waterproof your shoes:
Use candle/ beeswax to make all your fabric shoes waterproof. All you need to do is rub a generous amount of beeswax all over your shoe. Then blow dry it so that it melts and leave it that way fro 30 - 45 minutes. Don’t worry about the wax colour it disappears after the shoe dries. This is a great way to keep your expensive shoes safe to wear in the rain.
Keep your accessories to a bare minimum. Metal jewellery will give you rashes with the moisture, so try using plastic jewellery.
3. Monsoon Essential:
Invest in a sturdy & collapsable umbrella that has a cover that you can store it in after use and one that fits in your bag. On rainy days, carry a raincoat instead!
4. Rain Marks:
Don’t you just hate when water drops fall on clothes and leave water stains. Here’s how to get rid off them without having to put them to wash. Put a white towel on the ironing board and place your top on it with the stain facing downwards. Then sponge it with a damp cloth and iron. Move your top to a dry part of the towel and repeat again until the stain has vanished. The towel absorbs the stain.
5. Store Leather:
Moisture really hampers leather goods. Keep your leather shoes, bags and jackets in a well ventilated place so that they don’t stink. Shoes must be completely dried before putting them in your shoe rack. Prevent leather items from bending and try to keep them in cloth bags to avoid moisture. Also the silica gel packets that you get in your bag, never throw them away as they help to absorb moisture and keep things dry.
6. Store Clothes:
Camphor balls absorb moisture and will ensure that there’s no room for insects in your wardrobe. This will help keep your clothes clean during the wet season.
Neem leaves have anti-pest and anti-fungal properties. Since they’re a natural pesticide, dried neem leaves when placed in your wardrobe can prevent insects and bacteria from eating and ruining your clothes.
We hope you find these hacks useful and do share any hacks you use to cope with the monsoon.
