You might think a hole in your pantyhose or tights means they are ruined. As long as the hole is small and hasn’t started to run, your tights can be fixed and worn again. With this quick trick you can save your pantyhose or tights and be sure they will last for at least the rest of the day. If you wear tight a lot, always carry a bottle of clear nail polish in your handbag…

Ripped tights can ruin your outfit, be prepared to stop the rip before it runs with fast-drying clear nail polish. The nail polish will bind to the sides of the hole, preventing it from expanding:
