Festivals can be all fun and games until that stubborn stain or sudden burn spoils your outfit. If your clothes havent survived all the fun Diwali parties this season, here are a few tips you can use to make them ready and as good as new for another round of parties!EmbroideryBe it incense stick burns or small tears, camouflaging or slightly ornate embroidery can help cover up small holes in your outfit. For bigger damage, you can also go the DIY route and opt for embroidered patches available at lace stores. Try to match colours or go with a fun contrast so it blends well.Clean it upStains are super common on festive clothing given all the yummy Indian food thats involved. When dealing with oil stains, its best to try some damage control as soon as you can. Quickly dab some talcum powder on the spot and let it absorb all the excess oil. You can also leave this on overnight or for a couple of hours before you brush it off. If any stain remains, do some spot cleaning with dishwashing liquid and a gentle toothbrush to get the stain out.Re-dyeThis especially works for stains on light-coloured outfits. You can get your garment dyes into a darker colour to cover up stains completely. Tie-dye or shibori dyeing can also help camouflage stains in an interesting way. You may have to change your zip or stitches in case they dont catch the dye colour.AlterationsFor damaged hems, especially on long sleeves or pant hems, you can simply give your garment a trim. If youd like to retain the original length of the garment, you can add details like laces or trims to add the length you have lost. Sleeves are also super easy to change if they have a joining stitch at the armhole.Image used for representational purposes only.
