Glittery clothes are fun, but finding that glitter all over the rest of your wardrobe or your furniture, car, jacket, face or hair is not so fun. Your friends, especially male friends, usually don't appreciate finding glitter from your clothes all over themselves either. Glitter can be hard to remove from some objects as well. You don't need to give up your fun glittery clothes, however, since it is possible to keep the glitter from shedding while you're wearing them.
Take the clothing outside in an area where falling glitter will not cause a problem.
Shake the clothing briskly to cause any excess glitter to fall off.
Test colorfastness by spraying a small amount of hairspray on an inconspicuous place on the clothing, holding the can about eight to 10 inches away from the fabric.
Wait for the hairspray to dry and check to see if it has discolored the fabric. If the fabric is not discolored, proceed.
Hang the clothing on a clothes hanger with the glitter side facing out.
Hang the clothing in a place that will be easy to spray, but away from anything that would be damaged or soiled by hairspray.
Spray the glittery area with hairspray, holding the can eight to 10 inches away from the fabric.
Wait for the hairspray to dry completely before wearing or storing the garment.
Spray the garment with hairspray again each time after you launder it.
Wash the garment inside out to help reduce the amount of glitter shedding.
Don't wash glitter adorned garments with regular clothing. They will shed at least some glitter in the wash, and the glitter is hard to remove from other clothes.
