CLEAR IT

What is it: Deodorant Removing Sponge

How To Use: Hold fabric taut and use the sponge (DRY ONLY) to gently rub spot until deodorant is gone. 

Quick Tip: Never wet the sponge! You can also use this as a quick lint remover in a pinch. 

TAPE IT

What is it: Rescue Tape

How To Use: Peel the backing off and adhere tape to garment or directly onto clean skin. Gently smooth fabric so tape doesn't pucker or wrinkle. 

Quick Tip: We recommend adhering tape to skin for dress line or top taping. If using as a quick hem repair, we suggest removing the garment first and taping on a flat surface. The more you handle the tape, the less sticky it will become so keep that in mind when using. If it folds to itself, it's very hard to straighten it back out, so when you're about to use you can hang it off the end of a finger to keep it from sticking to itself or anything around you! Be cautious around extremely delicate fabrics such as vintage lace. Always test in an inconspicuous area first. Check out this blog post for more tips!

SECURE IT

What is it: Hair & Pin Kit 

How To Use: Simply grab and go! We designed this specifically to meet your "pinning" needs. 

Quick Tip: Clear elastics can also be used to keep a knot in your favorite tee for a more cropped look or for a quick ponytail. They can also be used to pull fabric back during photography to create a more streamlined silhouette. Use the corsage pins on a wedding day for a boutonniere, to keep a bouquet ribbon in place, or even to pin an article of clothing for a hem reference for your tailor.  

DE-LINT IT

What is it: Lint Roller 

How To Use: Peel away logo liner, and roll away lint and dirt! Be sure to tear away sheets once they are no longer sticky.

Quick Tip: Store in your purse, car, or carry-on for quick and easy use!

SHIELD IT

What is it: Glam + Garment Shield

How To Use: This product prevents makeup transfer from face to clothing. Remove the shield from box and carefully place over the front of your face with the elastic part around your hairline. Slip your shirt or dress over your head.

Quick Tip: We always suggest applying lipstick/gloss AFTER you've used this shield so you can get multiple uses out of it. Store back in it's box or a ziplock bag for multiple uses!

 COVER IT

What is it: Silicone Pasties

How To Use: Remove protective plastic sheet, place where desired, and get dressed! 

Quick Tip: Make sure skin is free of lotions or oils before applying for best results. If you're using any kind of body tape product, we suggest wearing these as a protective barrier. If you are sensitive to silicones, we recommend a trial run. As always, if you experience irritation, stop using immediately.

THREAD IT

What is it: Pre-threaded Needles

How To Use: Simply grab and go! Match one of the commonly used colors with your garment and start stitching. 

Quick Tip: Don't forget to tie a small knot on both sides of the thread (once you cut to your desired length) for a secure stitch. To learn how to thread a needle just in case your thread slips out, head to our blog post. 

PROTECT IT

What is it: Protective Gloves

How To Use: Simply put on and go! 

Quick Tip: These are located inside the folded towel in your Kit. They are latex and powder free, but we still don't recommend using after a fresh manicure as condensation will naturally occur. Great for use with our bonding glue, or when handling delicate fabrics you don't want oils to get on! 

FIX IT

What is it: Sewing Kit 

How To Use: Simply thread the included needle with the color of your choice and you're off and running! 

Quick Tip: Check out this blog post for more tips on how to use this super handy kit. We recommend keeping this kit as organized as you can so you're ready for anything! 

SIP IT

What is it: Reusable Metal Straw

How To Use: Remove from protective bag, hand wash before use, and you're good to go! 

Quick Tip: Bring with you for special events to keep your lipstick in place and avoid liquid spills. Store in handbag for easy, discreet use. 

REMOVE IT

What is it: Stain Removing Spray

How To Use: Prep the affected area with a small amount of water, treat stain, wipe and rinse. Launder or dry clean as needed and if you can't launder immediately, be sure to rinse thoroughly. 

Quick Tip: If you're treating a stain on-the-go and need to get back to the crowd, allow stain to dry or use a hair dryer to hide the wet spot.

UN-CLING IT

What is it: Static Removing Spray

How To Use: Spritz generously on the inside of fabrics to eliminate static. 

Quick Tip: Since this is an all-natural, hypo-allergenic product, it's safe to use even on your hair! 

DAB IT

What is it: Tissues

How To Use: Simply grab and go! For the snotty, happy tears. 

Quick Tip: Keep sealed for best results. Can also be used to blot liquid spills.

WIPE IT

What is it: Towel

How To Use: For all the spills and messes, use the ultra-absorbent towel included in your Kit. Drape over the front of your dress for makeup touch ups.

Quick Tip: Wash and dry before use for best results. 

SMOOTH IT

What it is: Wrinkle Release Spray

How To Use: Spray 8-12 inches away from the garment in a sweeping motion until wrinkles on the front and back are slightly damp. Shake garment out, then smooth in a brisk, downward motion with a clean, dry hand. Let garment dry completely before wearing. 

Quick Tip: We love hanging garment on a hanger as opposed to laying flat.

RENEW IT

What is it: Shoe Wipes 

How To Use: Remove wipe from packet and use until moisture is gone and shoes are clean. 

Quick Tip: For a squeaky clean look, dry shoes with your Rescue Kit cloth before they fully dry from the wipe! Keep wipes in a cool, dry spot for best results. 

CLIP IT

What is it: Bra Converter Clip

How To Use: Slip bra straps in the back into clip to create a racerback look to hide straps!

Quick Tip: The key to a comfortable fit is to make sure you loosen the bra straps enough so they aren't too tight on your skin. You should be able to adjust the position of the clip according to the shape of the top you're wearing, so it's as high or low on your back as you'd like. Use a mirror to see behind you if you are struggling!

ABSORB IT

What is it: Sweat Pads

How To Use: Simply peel backings and adhere to inside of your shirt to protect from sweat. 

Quick Tip: In a pinch, one sweat pad would also work tucked into your bra to help absorb cleavage sweat!

GLIDE IT

What is it: Blister & Chafe Balm For Brides

How To Use: This product is best used preventatively! Use it anywhere you think your skin may get irritated. Apply to feet, heels, underarms, inner thighs, etc. for grease-free chafe protection. 

Quick Tip: May also be used on sticky zippers! Start with a small amount on the zipper and add more as needed. Can also work in a pinch on dry cuticles for those close-up photos. We recommend keeping this product in a cool dry spot, as it WILL melt in a warm environment.
