The next pair of panty hose you buy, put water in a ziploc zipper bag and put your new panty hose inside put in the freezer. A couple of days before you need them, take out, un-thaw and hang to dry. They will be difficult to put on the first time, but will last much longer.

Once a month, put them in freezer bag with no water overnight. Freezing them strengthens the fibres which prevents runs. They will last a long time. I have had my 2 pairs for a year.

Panty hose are expensive! This little trick has probably saved me hundreds of dollars over the years! Decide on your most preferred color of pantyhose and buy several pair. When getting a run or hole in one leg, cut that leg off and launder the "good leg" and panty. Put aside.

The next time a new pair has gotten a run or a hole, repeat this cutting and laundering routine. You will now have two good legs of hosiery and two panties. Slip them on and you now have a "new" pair of hose! An added benefit is the little bit more of tummy control by wearing two pairs of panties!

If you find you are left with panty hose that don't fit in the panty - (that is, the legs fit - but the panty comes up too short) you can still use them. I cut off the panty of old control top pantyhose and save them.
