You may have heard clear nail polish can stop a ladder in its tracks but how can you stop them from occurring in the first place?

The answer? Simply freeze your tights before wearing them. It might sound silly but the no-effort trick is a secret used by women around the world.

Take them out the next day and leave to thaw. The tights will be significantly stronger after the process as the freezing makes fibres in tights stronger.

There you have it! Give it a go and tell us how it went.
