Replacing your favorite shirt is such a pain. Not only because you have to go to the store and find a new favorite shirt, but because you don't even know how the first one shrunk, ripped or got a stain on it.

Don't buy a whole new wardrobe when your zipper doesn't work, sweater has a run and you have too many bleach stains to count. Use these clever clothing hacks instead to make your clothes come back to life!

1. De-pill your clothing using a razor
