It is possible that you’re washing, folding, and storing your clothes in a wrong way and ruining your clothes, find out more!
You’ve been washing, folding, and storing your clothes all wrong
1. You’re hanging your sweaters like you would a normal shirt.
Gravity will stretch out the neck and shoulders of heavier sweaters this way. If you don’t have any drawer space, fold your sweaters and lay them on a hanger like below.
2. You’re folding your leather pants or skirts instead of hanging them.
This will create creases and wrinkles, which will be tough to get rid of because you should never iron or steam leather. To prevent the creases from forming, hang your pants with a clip hanger. Use business cards to protect the fabric from the grooves of the clips, so they don’t leave marks.
3. You’re storing your clothes in the dry-clean plastic bags.
As soon as you get your dry-cleaning back, take your clothes out of the bags. Fabric needs to breathe, and the plastic can trap odors and humidity. If your clothes wrinkle inside your closet, it’s because you have the hangers shoved too close together. To prevent crease and wrinkles, leave an inch in between each hanger.
