How to Stop a Run in Pantyhose or Tights (2 Fixes)
Once they get a hole, pantyhose can run quicker than Usain Bolt doing the 100-meter dash. If you don’t learn how to remedy the situation quickly, you’re going to end up spending a small fortune buying replacement pairs.
Luckily, it’s actually pretty easy to fix a run in tights or pantyhose. All it takes is a bit of know-how and some clear nail polish or hairspray. Let me explain…
How to Prevent Hosiery Holes from Getting Bigger
I have two different tricks that I use when I get a hole in my pantyhose. The key thing to remember is that for either of these methods to be effective, you have to catch the run early.
The Clear Nailpolish Method
As soon as you get the slightest run or hole in your nylons, take them off and paint clear nail polish along the border of the hole. Let the polish dry before putting your nylons back on.
The Hairspray Method
Hairspray also works as a quick fix if you’re on-the-go. Just spray some hairspray wherever you have the hole or run and that will help prevent expanding.
Any brand of hairspray works but the “super hold” type of hair sprays work best.
If you’re someone who wears tights or pantyhose often, you’ll probably find yourself using this little life hack pretty regularly. It’s such a great way to give your tights some extra life!
If you want to be prepared all the time, you could even carry a small bottle of clear nail polish with you at all times. That way you can apply the nail polish to your nylons right away which will make the fix more effective.
