Live on Less – Money Saving Tips: Stop the Run in Your Hose
Once they get a hole, pantyhose can run quicker than a sprinter doing the 100 meter dash.
And having to buy and re-buy pantyhose can get pricey.
Here’s a little trick I use when I get a hole in my hose, but remember you have to catch it early for this to be worth it.
As soon as you get the slightest run or hole in your nylons, take them off. Then, paint clear nail polish along the border of the hole. Let the polish dry before putting your nylons back on.
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. The “super hold” type of hair sprays work best.
