The average American family spends $1,700 on clothes annually. With that kind of money going out the door, you want your apparel to last. Luckily, with just a few common household items, you can save your threads for another season.

To get rid of underarm stains on your white shirts, just take equal parts of hydrogen peroxide, water and baking soda and blend them in a cup. Apply this mix generously to the stain and let it sit overnight. The next day, just rinse off and throw it in the wash.

Loose sunglasses aren't a good look when they're sitting crooked on your face. If you don't have a tiny screwdriver handy, an easy temporary fix is to put some clear nail polish on the hinge. Let it dry, and you can get back to looking cool again.

Finally, a caught zipper doesn't always mean you're stuck with a problem. Grab a little lip balm, run it along the track on both sides, and watch it open right up.

Give these simple tips a shot, and you can potentially save your favorite clothes -- and a few dollars in the process.
