Use Nail Polish to Keep Buttons from Falling Off Your Shirt

Threads make a habit of unraveling from time to time, and when that happens to a sewn-on button you have to find matching thread and reattach it. As LIFE.hackaday notes, you can stop these threads from fraying with a little bit of nail polish.

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.

Just a dab will keep your buttons in place.
