Desperate Fashion Situation: A run in your nylons. Yep, I know many girls don’t wear nylons anymore but you really should because they make you legs look flawless. However, it does seem like it’s so easy to get a run in them. So when you are in a bind and you do not have the time to use the clear nail polish trick (supposed to cure a run in your nylons) try this. Wet a bar of soap and rub it at the top of the run. If there’s only liquid soap in the bathroom, hairspray will work too.
