In addition to proper cleaning and washing, keeping your clothing in good shape and looking great has as much to do with how you store your garments it as it does with how you wear them. Proper storage is also key to extending the life of your clothes, whether it be investment purchases like a leather jacket or a suit or something as simple as a t-shirt.
So, in this episode of 2 Minute Tuesday we’re answering a viewer question about how to properly store your clothing and all the tools you need to outfit your closet.
Use The Right Hangers
They help maintain clothes and keeps them organized. We recommend jacket hanger for all types of jackets, from suits to bomber jackets. The shape helps support the jacket’s shoulders and structure.
We recommend clip hangers for any and all pants and felt hangers for all types of shirts and sweatshirts.
Hang Your Pants Vertically or Folded Once
Hanging your pants vertically with a clip hanger is the ideal way since it will help hang out wrinkles. Simply attach the clip to the bottom hem of your pants and then hang. But, folded over once on a proper hanger works if you’re limited on closet space.
Always Fold Your Sweaters
You never want to hang your sweaters as it can damage the delicate material. Fold them and store them in a drawer or in the closet and don’t forget cedar blocks for keeping moths away.
