When you tie your hair too tight (and often), it strains the follicles and prevents hair growth. Try not to frequently tie your ponytail in the same spot.

6. White wine neutralizes red wine stains.

Yeah, you read that correctly. When you're at a party and you accidentally spill some red wine on your blouse, immediately pour white wine over the stain and let it air-dry. The white neutralizes the red, making it easier to take out the stain.

Rub the marks in a circular motion and the sheets will absorb the deodorant. Make sure there's no excess lint from the dryer sheet or you'll end up with gray marks. Pantyhose also works!

We all buy clothes we don't wear, and it takes up unnecessary closet space. Place your hangers the opposite way, and after you use an article of clothing, hang it up regularly. By the end of the year (or season), donate the clothes that are still hanging backward.

If you can't comfortably fit two fingers under the band of your bra, it is too tight. If you can fit your entire fist under the band, it's too loose.

22. Put baking soda in your flats to avoid smelly shoes.

When you put shoes on without socks, your feet sweat and start to smell. If you put baking soda in your flats, it will kill the bacteria and get rid of that gross smell.

Also, do NOT pump your mascara wand in and out of the tube — that causes it to clump. Twirl the wand inside the bottle before applying another coat.
