I wonder if everyone is as nervous as I am about removing tags from new clothes.

For the inside tags, I could just leave them, but sometimes the edge of the tag, after cutting it is really irritating or scratchy.

Plus, I’m afraid of accidentally making a hole in my clothes when I cut off the tag.

If that sounds familiar to you, then check out this genius hack for removing tags from clothes.

Tools and materials:

  • Nail file
Finding tag

1. Locate the offending tag

Find that tag that keeps bugging you – it’s probably attached to a side seam.

2. Remove the tag

Do NOT use scissors! 

Instead, place the end of the tag flat up against the flat part of a nail file or emery board (not on the edge.)

Removing tag

File the tag by rubbing it up and down over the nail file.

Eventually, it will cut off the tag with a dull edge that won’t scratch against your skin the way a scissor-cut edge will.
