Ten Prom Hacks You Need to Know
1) Be Financially Prepared
Carry a credit card or some cash in case of an emergency – you never know when or why you might need it (this is also a great life hack)! Both a credit card and $20 dollar bill slip easily between your phone and most phone covers, so you don’t need to worry about bringing a wallet along!
2) Dawn Soap – Dress Stain Saver
Last minute stain on your dress? Dawn is your best bet for gently removing the stain without harming your dress.
3) Steam Your Dress – for Free!
Many types of fabrics used for prom dresses wrinkle easily and cannot be ironed . Don’t worry about having to buy a hand steamer, though. Simply hang your dress in the bathroom and close the door while you take a nice relaxing shower. The steam from your shower will remove any wrinkles from your dress in no time!
4) Hairspray Your Bobby Pins
Spraying hairspray on your bobby pins gives you extra hold for your hairdo and helps simplify the process of getting your hair to stay put.
5) Sand Your Shoes
If you’ve bought new shoes for prom, don’t forget that the soles are probably still slippery. Five minutes with a piece of sandpaper and a little elbow grease will get your shoes in perfect prom readiness.
