Now you may be wondering, “Why do I need to know the clothes to hang and the ones to fold? Is it important at all?” Yes it is very important. Why? Knowing the clothes to fold and the ones to hang would help you to maximize their wardrobe life. Storage of your clothes are also as important as knowing the right way to wash and remove stains.
So read on to know ‘what to fold’ and ‘what to hang’… Thank me later.
What to Fold:
Bras and Underwear. Your everyday bras and undies should be stored in a drawer.
All Knitwear. This includes sweaters, knit dresses, and knit pants—knitted attires don’t really wrinkle.
Heavily embellished evening gowns. Since these tend to be heavy, hanging them can distort their shape, so fold them in layers of tissue paper and store them in a safe place.
Jeans, cords, and khakis. Casual pants made from durable fabrics can be folded.
T-shirts. Hangers can stretch your tees out, so fold properly and store.
What to Hang:
Jackets, blazers, and coats. Ideally, these are best kept on a curved suit hanger.
Dresses. Slinky silk dresses should be hung on a padded hanger, and lightweight gowns should be hung up by their loops.
Skirts. Use hangers with clips or hanging loops for these.
Blouses. Be sure to keep the top button closed when hanging a button-up to keep the collar intact.
Scarves. Fold them in half and hang them over the hanger.
If you haven’t been storing your clothes in the order above, then you have got to start practicing it and you’ll be thankful that you did!
