I can't count the number of times I've donned a new shirt and walked out the door feeling fierce, only to get a sudden stab in the side courtesy of one of those itchy "Remove Before Washing or Wearing" tags. So what are we to do? Cut away and risk snipping a hole, loosing a pivotal thread, and losing the care instructions? Or suffer silently while itchy tags wage pointy-edged war with our necks and sides?
Fortunately, now you can keep the tags, but quell the itching by tacking a swatch of Dritz iron-on, no-sew hemming tape on the tags' backs. At only $2 a roll, the lifesaver that is hemming tape helps keep our clothing in tact and our itching at bay. And while layering with tagless tees (like the entire tee line from Old Navy ) is an option in the winter, hemming tape is a nice little insurance policy that no one will ever have to tell you to tuck your tags.
Bonus: You can use this tape to press down annoying tags that stick out on your winter scarves.
