How to Fix a Rip in Tights
Many techniques can be involved in fixing the snag in the tights, some of them will be useful for temporary purposes, and some can be used for the permanent solution of the ripping. We will provide an adequate overview of how to fix rips in tights, which will be much beneficial and can save you from various embarrassments.
Nail Polish Technique
This is one of the most accessible techniques that can be implemented for fixing the tights, and this technique requires the use of nail polish, you can use any nail polish color for the process. But we generally suggest the white one because it is less messy and the color’s effect is compromised. So when you tights get ripped off, take it off and then make it upside down, this will help to use the nail polish on the point where it is torn.
Now you have to hold the ripped place and then gently apply the nail polish on the torn part. You should not use it all over the area, just at the edges of the top and bottom sides. The nail polish will quickly get drier within three to four minutes, and then you can again wear the thighs and perform your regular duties. The nail polish will prevent the tights from further ripping.
Hair Spray Technique
In this technique, you will use a hair spray for fixing the tights. Sometimes this may happen that your tights get torn while you are out of your home, then it is quite challenging to find nail polish, but it is somehow possible to find a hair spray. So to ease your pressure, go to the restroom and take off your tights. Next, apply the hair spray around the torn and wait two minutes to get it dried. Then you can again wear them, and finally, when you are back home, fix them using nail polish.
Egg Darn Technique
In this method, you have to sew the thighs. You have to remember that after sewing, the tights will not get back to the original form as it is made of netted fabric, but further embarrassment can be compromised. In this process, you have to take a piece of egg darn and then put it inside the tights and then place torn part above it.
After that, you have to start sewing the tight. Start from the edges and complete the full edges sewing. After the full edges are stitched gently, start sewing from top to end of the torn part. The edge sewing will make the tight sturdy, and then you can easily sew the mouth off after the stitching is done, cut off the part of tights that are attached with the egg darn, and take it outside. Your tights are not ready to work, and the rip is fixed.
In conclusion, we would hope that the techniques that we have stated here will be much helpful for fixing your tights for temporary as well as permanent purposes. The methods will be much handy for the beginners to perform, and the skills will be highly improved. Thank you for your patience. Have a beautiful day!!
