Never Lose A Button Again!



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

More Information:

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!
