Exclamation Fixing my show breeches! PLEASE HELP! (I'm poor. XD)

Hey.

I have light tan Tuffrider breeches...they're the best I can afford, and my favorite pair. (My other tan ones aren't as comfy)

Thing is, instead of a button it has the hook thing, but the actual hook came off when it was washing/drying. I can't find it!

Where can I get replacement ones?

Also, there's a small circular black stain on them, I don't know what from..how can I remove it?

Please reply guys...I don't have an extra $50 laying around! XD (And I only used these TWICE!)

You can go to Walmart, they have the supplies needed to replace the hook on your breeches - go to the craft section where they sell all their material/sewing supplies.

The black stains - maybe your mom would know? I would spray "spray n wash" on the stains and then soak them in a sink of water for a few hours with laundry detergent - other than that, I am clueless on that part.

Walmart in their fabric/craft section, or any fabric/craft store, should have a new hook for the front of your breeches. Bring them with you so you can show an employee what you're looking to replace.

As for the stain, if you've already dried them in the dryer, then there's not much you can do. If you hung them up to dry, then using a very concentrated oxi-clean solution (with HOT water) might help take out the stain. Fill the kitchen sink or a big bowl with hot water. Put a whole BIG scoop of oxi-clean in it (so the water turns really white). Swish the stain around in it and let is soak. Use a soft bristled tooth brush to try and gently scrub/lift the stain after it's soaked 10 minutes.

If it's still there, use just a little water and make a paste out of the oxi-clean. Apply it to both sides of the stain and let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

If it's still there, you may be SOL .
