Never Lose A Button Again!

This Sparked Me!

Put clear nail polish on the inside of a new clothing item's buttons threads and never lose a button again.

Most buttons are done in a factory by machine and they aren't backstitched to prevent the button from coming lose. A few dabs of clear nail polish on the threads that are holding the button on, will stop your buttons from falling off. I have yet to lose a button!

    I think I will keep my clear polish handy and before I put on each item, I will treat the buttons. That way I won't be overwhelmed with doing the entire closet at once!

    I guess I need to hit the store for some clear nail polish so I can try this on my clothes this weekend. emoticon
