Don’t let spills or makeup mishaps get between you and your favorite clothes. Immediately soak a stain in cold water so it won’t set, then treat as recommended below…
Soak red wine stains in white wine, then cover with baking soda, let sit, and rinse.
Grab some shaving cream and gently work it into the stain with a washcloth.
Flush the back of the stain with cold water, dab with liquid dishwashing detergent, and let soak.
Scrape off any excess and saturate the stain with hair spray, then dab carefully to remove.
Gently blot it away with a dryer sheet or the protective foam used on dry cleaning hangers.
Soak in white vinegar, then scrub gently with a toothbrush and liquid dishwashing detergent.

Commando wants to make women look and feel fabulous. That’s why they combine luxury fabrics and flawless fits to create styles that are the foundations of a great wardrobe. And since fashion is always at the fore, it’s no wonder commando has become the favorite of celebrities, stylists, and smart, chic women everywhere.
With three sisters and a slew of close girlfriends, commando founder and designer Kerry O’Brien understands women and their undergarment garment woes. “The right underwear can do wonders for how a woman looks in her clothes,” she says. “When you have the right foundations, you feel that much more confident and beautiful.”
It was confidence and a leap of faith that led O’Brien to start commando in 2003, leaving her high-profile public relations position in Manhattan. “I didn’t look back,” says the entrepreneur. “Once I started commando, it was all about moving forward.” Now a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America and a patent-holding inventor, O’Brien is known for her innovative and fashion-conscious designs. “Commando is all about style,” says O’Brien. “From the bottom on up.”
Obsessive about fit and on a constant search for the most luxurious fabrics, O’Brien has high standards for her garments. “Every single thing commando makes is designed to make women love getting dressed,” she says. “I want them to smile when they slip on their commando.”

The New Year calls for new destinations…want to travel like a seasoned nomad? Let us be your guide on packing right, light and in style (of course!). Here’s our recommendations on how to pack like a jetsetter.
Pick a durable hard case bag that’ll not only be able to withstand the changing environment, it also avoids contents being pressed down too much from any added pressure. Plus, they’re non-expandable, which means lighter packing (God forbid you over stuff your bags and have no room for travel purchases).

Don’t pack anything you “think” you’ll want to wear. Take into account the number of nights and days you’re packing for and pack only essentials. Sure, having extra options is great, but if you want swift travels (like a jetsetter), minimal baggage is best. In any case, you can always shop additional items you may need (hey, any excuse to shop is reason enough for us!).
Pack shoes that can go from day to night with ease – sneakers are great for dashing through the airport and exploring, as are slip ons and loafers that are stylish and comfortable. And don’t let the space in your shoes go wasted when you can pack accessories and smaller items in them.

To avoid the hassle of looking for an iron and ironing board on your holiday (plus, those things can be tricky to work), pack clothes that are less prone to crease. Ideally, your travel clothes are the ones which are durable, takes up minimal space, wrinkle-proof and easy to match with other items.
Organize and pack everything separately: gallon zip lock bags are inexpensive and protects from color transfers, scrunching or snagging. Fold or roll separates to maximize space/minimize crease and make it easy to unload at your destination. Getting everything out as soon as you arrive at your destination avoids items buried at the bottom of the bag from going unnoticed. For toiletries, zip lock bags again are invaluable for avoiding spillage and keeping everything visible.

Place things you may need upon arrival at the very top: swimwear, sunblock (so you can hit the beach ASAP) and chargers. It’s best to pack all chargers together in a labelled zip lock bag for easy access (don’t forget the adapter if you’re going overseas!).
