Tina’s Tried & Tested Tuesday Tips #9

Have you ever dropped an earring or small piece of jewellery only for it to somehow hide from view?

One way to find it is to stick the leg of some tights over the end of the vacuum tool. Place an elastic band or hairband over the tights to keep them in place.
Scan the area with the tool. It’ll suck the jewellery towards it, without sucking it up!

I am awful for dropping the backs of earrings, so as always, I have tried and tested this!

    Very clever trick. Sometimes a magnet on a string does the trick too.

    This is an amazing idea! I’m so bad for losing the backs of earrings that I have less backs than I do actual earrings! Thanks for the tip! 🙂 x

        Same, the worst is when you have a silver earring and have to use a gold back on it. I’m so grateful that I have long hair when that happens! 🙂 xx
