What can be done with a pair of pearl gray cotton trousers, newly bought, never used but now with a small line of iron burn (thanks to my cleaning lady) on the thigh?

Im not sure you can repair a burn in fabric. You should only be thanking your cleaning lady after she buys you a new pair of pants dude. Thats bullshit. Unless your cleaning lady is your mom, in which case, give her a break. She gave birth to you and raised you. She can fuck up once and get a free pass.

A fingernail and dove soap. It is tedious work but it actually works. Put the soap underneath the spot with the iron burn and take your nail and scrape it off gently. Never leave the water in the iron. Clean the iron frequently. And if you have a delicate fabric simply put like a pillow cover over the shirt or pants and iron it. It isnt really your cleaning lady's fault, she isn't a dry cleaner.

I've learned that it can be painted in navy. That's better than nothing.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
