As a second-hand clothes lover, stylist and mom, I love making the most of used items. Whether it’s a blouse that’s missing a button, a dress that it’s too long, or a sweater that needs good shaving, I love saving treasures to land on landfills. To fix the items I find I use these tools:
Steamer: Steam vapor is naturally sanitizing and deodorizing it kills odor-causing bacteria, keeping the clothes fresh. Steaming also removes allergens that attract dust mites.
Fabric shaver (pluizenverwijderaar): Clothing pilling is one of the most common signs of wear on a garment. A quick shave with the fabric shaver can turn an item from trash into looking like new.
Sewing kit: Perfect for little fixes like changing a button, small holes, or a detached strap.
Sewing machine: You don’t have to be a professional seamstress, to make simple alterations to an item. With a sewing machine, you can take up hems on pants or skirts, let out a waistband, repair seams, and short sleeves.

One thought on “Tools Every Thrifter Should Have”
Don’t ask me, I’m hopeless when it comes to repurposing stuff. However, I don’t buy a lot of stuff and wear it for years.
