The winter season receives mixed responses. While some just love the thought of chilling winter winds rubbing over the face, some people hate to step out of their cozy warm beds to avoid the winters.
It is a paradise for those who love winters but it is no less than hell for those who don't. So, to tell you that we feel you, we have some really cool hacks for the winter season that will help all of you get rid of the scare and make your life super easy during the snow season.
1. Dress Up In Layers
Most of us think that wearing woolens and thick clothes can help us last the winters. But the fact is the dressing up in layers is a much better option to be able to kick the cold off.
Layering traps the warm air in between and that creates an insulated shield that protects you from the extreme cold. If you don't believe us, then try it yourself. Wear one sweater and then wear 2-3 layers of t-shirts etc. You yourself would feel the difference.
2. Use A Razor To Get Rid Of The Pilling
Sometimes our newest sweaters and other woolens start developing pills. And to remove those from the scene you don't need anything but a simple razor. Just lay down your woolen straight and roll the razor blades from up to down. This will get hold of the pills and will make your woolen smooth and as good as new.
3. Boot Hacks
We all have at least one pair of long boots and we always end up messing them up in the shoe rack. Well, boots are not supposed to be stored in small spaces otherwise, cracks and wrinkles can easily develop on your boots and ruin them. So, to prevent this from happening, all you need is an old foil roll, that is sturdy and strong, and then insert it inside the length of the boots. Store your boots(how to style your thigh high boots) in a safe place near the exit door and there you go!
4. Use A Vacuum Seal

5. Cut Out A Woollen Insole
To keep your shoes warm in winters, you can easily cut a woolen insole out of it. Just take out the sole of your shoes, and trace them over the thick woolen fabric. Cut out the sole and insert it inside your shoes. Stay warm!
6. Socks Hack

Then cover them with socks and there you go. As long as your socks aren't too wet, you would have no heat loss from the feet. Try this hack before doing the bathroom jobs in winters.
