Extend the lifespans of your clothes and shoes with these inexpensive gadgets

ToolsIntro

Clothes are like cars: Both require routine maintenance to function properly and look fresh. These cheap gadgets will help keep your clothes in perfect shape for years to come.

Shoehorn

  • SHOEHORN

A shoehorn makes putting on stiff dress shoes easier, and stops you from crushing the heels while trying to lodge your feet inside. Use this one from JCrew to hold open the back of your shoes while comfortably sliding in your feet.

SHOETREE

Place a shoetree inside your shoe while you’re not wearing it, so that you can preserve the shoe’s shape. This handy tool stops leather from creasing.

Sweaterstone

SWEATER STONE

You know those annoying fabric pills your sweater forms after you wear it a few times? Lightly rub a sweater stone over them.

The gritty pumice in this stone will pick up the extra fabric, but won’t hurt the surface of your sweater.

SHOESHINE KIT

Forget finding an old-school shining station. This shoeshine kit is compact, so you can easily bring it with you on business trips.

The kit comes with a brush, two polish daubers, and two wax polishes in black and brown.

Minisewing

MINI SEWING MACHINE

All you need is a miniature sewing machine—and some rudimentary Home Ec skills—to fix the little rips and tears in your clothes.

We like this handheld, portable model. It’ll handle basic repairs without taking up space.

STAIN BRUSH

Staring down a fresh coffee spill? Apply a stain-removing solution (like Oxi Clean) as soon as possible so the stain doesn’t set, and pour lukewarm water over the stained item.

Then, use this brush on the area to help lift the stain.
