I don't want to ruin the surprise, but this trick is SO easy you'll be surprised you never thought of it. Or maybe you did!! This super simple trick has worked wonders for me to prevent pant tags from being itchy and uncomfortable. Who knew something so easy could be such a life changer?

This is for people who prefer to keep the tags on instead of cutting them off so they retain the value of the clothing items and know the brand and size.

Here's what you will need:

  • A pair of pants with an itchy tag
  • Flexible stretchy fabric bandages

It is very important to get the fabric bandages, not the plastic ones! I have found that that 3/4" x 3" size typically works best for most tags. You can get a box of 20+ bandages at any store for under $3.

Lay your pants flat on a hard surface and pull down the front of the waistband so the back part is laying flat.

Remove the bandage from the wrapper.

I typically lay the bandage over the tag before removing the tabs to see how much it will cover. Once you are ready, remove the first tab and press down one side of the bandage.

Then once one side is pressed on, gently stretch the pants so that the tag lays flat. Remove the other tab and press down the other side of the bandage. If the tag is wider than the bandage you can stretch the bandage a little bit to cover.

That's it, you're done! Super easy to do, and it makes a big difference! The fabric bandages are perfect because they just feel like fabric against your skin.

Now you're all set to wear your favorite pants without being itchy!

All done!

    No, I cut the labels off

    She stated this is for people who want to keep the labels on for different reasons. I cut mine off but sometimes there is still a scratchy little nub that I'll use this trick on. Medical tape would work too.
