Use Nail Polish to Keep Button Threads from Fraying

thread polish

We’ve all been there: bought a great looking new shirt, wore it a couple times, then noticed the threads on some of the buttons are starting to unravel.  Curses!

Of course, removing the buttons and resewing them is an option, but finding a matching thread color may be impossible.  Instead of that headache, just use a coat of clear nail polish to seal the thread in place and halt the unraveling.  Be sure to carefully remove any loose strands before applying the polish.

Thanks to Redditor c0bracommander for this great suggestion from the pages of Life Pro Tips!
