Revive Don’t Replace

Garbage is an issue. We live in a world where it might be less expensive to buy something new than to fix what you have. If you have any doubts about this go see what people put in their trash.  Here’s a few ideas to reduce that trash heap, and maybe save yourself a few dollars.

Them shoes

Your favorite pair of shoes are looking a little worn. Don’t get rid of them just yet. It is possible to take those run down soles to be reconditioned. It’s way cheaper than a new pair of boots. And you get to keep wearing those comfortable boots. Another trick you can use is to rub a banana peel on the leather. It’s a cheap way to shine your shoes.

Coats and Jackets

We all have a favorite, but one day you just get tired of the way it looks. You can replace the buttons on it to give it a new look, or you can try those patches that are so popular right now.

Shirts

Have you ever had a favorite shirt that just starts to look grungy? There’s those stains on the armpits. You can get rid of those discolorations by combining one part Castile soap with two parts hydrogen peroxide. Let it sit then soak it in cold water for an hour. Then you can send it through the was. The shirt will look fresh again.

What ideas do you have to revive items instead of replacing them.
