We have all done it, forgotten to put the cap back on a pen. Jostled a stack of papers and ran a line of ink down our sleeve. Scratched our back with the wrong end of the pen. Well there is a solution when your traditional stain remover is not up to the task. Hair spray! Generously spray the area marked until it soaks through the fabric. Then immediatly launder the item before the spray has a chance to dry. Your ink mark should have disappeared when the wash is finished.
Does your wardrobe consist of sweats, hoodies, and tattered jeans? Have you been told by your boss that you take the meaning of casual friday to the next level? Do you fall into the daily routine of racing around your bedroom and throwing anything on? Does this happen without a glance in the mirror before heading out the door? You may be officially classified as a shlumpadinka. What is a shlumpadinka exactly? The phrase was first created by Oprah. As she states on oprah.com : “I made this word up a long time ago. It represents, for me, a woman who dresses like she has completely given up..and it shows.” Our workchic team doesn’t want you to fall into that category. Each month we’ll feature ideas that will instantly take you from frumpy slumpadinka to workchic diva!
