You won’t ever know if people are watching your chest sweat or if you break a heel while crossing the street. It’s easy to say that shit happens when you least expect it.

2. Problems with your zipper

3. Chest sweat
If the day is too warm and you find that you are sweating abit more than usual on your chest area and you really need to do something about it before it starts to be noticed, then here’s what you can do.

6. When you’re facing leggings trouble

7. Wet shoes
It’s easy to dry out your wet shoes if you know how. It may seem gross but cat litter can be used for drying out your shoes. Presuming you have a cat as a pet, first pour cat litter into pantyhose. Then tie it up into a ball and place it inside your shoes. Leave it in there overnight where it will absorb moisture. Along with the pantyhose filled with cat litter, place some sodium bicarbonate inside the shoes to prevent bacteria buildup and remove unpleasant odors.
8. Yellow teeth
