Tip of the Day January 27, 2009

It's Back to School Week!

The summer has flown and now it's time for kids all over Australia to head back to school. The uniforms have been washed and ironed and the shoes polished to an outstanding sheen. Backpacks are loaded up with books and pencils and bright new lunchboxes and drink bottles stand ready on the bench to be packed with a tasty, nutritious lunch.

Save yourself some angst and gather those shirts, dresses and polo shirts and put a dab of clear nail polish on the front and back of each button before they are worn for the first time. This will help to anchor those loose threads and stop the buttons from falling off. It will also save you having to buy a card of 5 buttons when you only need 4 or having to buy two cards because you need 6. And of course those pricked fingers, sewing on buttons can be dangerous work!

You can do this to all shirt and dress buttons, not just school uniforms.
