Clothes Hangers

If you take good care of your clothes, they’ll take good care of you. Not many people like walking around in soiled, rumpled clothing. While ironing, steaming and laundering can be helpful solutions after the fact, you can take a pre-emptive approach to keeping your clothes in tip-top shape with a good set of hangers. You may be surprised to learn that there are many more clothes hanger styles out there than the dry cleaner’s wire variety and your standard plastic styles. Picking out the right one for different types of clothing may be confusing at first, so we’ve put together an easy-to-follow guide right here to get you started.

Is it OK to use plastic hangers?


Plastic hangers are perfect for hanging your dress shirts, blouses, T-shirts and polos. Their slim design helps them save space, similar to the thin velvet or wooden hangers that are also perfect for hanging simple shirts and blouses. When purchasing plastic hangers, make sure they feature quality construction. If you’re worried about them snapping, look for ones made from about 50 grams of plastic. Plastic child and baby hangers are also perfect for hanging up onesies and child-sized shirts. Just make sure they’re small enough to fit your child or baby’s clothing, as adult-sized styles can stretch these items out.

What should I look for in a suit or coat hanger?


Your suit and coat hangers should be thick and curved, especially if you’re hanging tailored suits or jackets. These clothing items require extra space in your closet, so don’t feel bad about squeezing in these thick hangers. Their curves and thickness will support the form of your garment. You can also use this type of clothes hanger to store sweaters and robes.

What are the best skirt and pants hangers?


Many people prefer to clip their skirts and pants when they hang them, as this can prevent unsightly marks and wrinkles. You can use a small piece of foam in between the clip and your garment to avoid the dent that would otherwise be left there by the clip. Pants can generally be folded in such a way that the clip only grabs onto the inside of the hem so that the dent doesn’t show up on the outside.

If you prefer to avoid clips altogether, look for styles that have a bar that connects the two arms of the hanger. You can drape your pants or skirt over this bar, leaving the top free for your matching top or jacket.

Are there other types of clothes hangers I can use to organize my accessories?


If you’re the proud owner of multiple neckties and scarves, you know firsthand how difficult it can be to store them. If your closet is your preferred space for keeping these colorful accessories, look for clever hanger designs to organize them.
• Ties: A tie rack is perfect for sorting out each tie individually, and some even spin around so you can easily browse through and select your necktie for the day. This can help free up valuable drawer space, as well.
• Scarves: A scarf hanger will hang up inside your closet, and it features loops or holes where you can easily drape your scarves to avoid tangling them up or keep them from falling on the floor. It also keeps your scarves in plain view so you can easily pick one out that matches today’s outfit.
• Belts: A belt hanger can solve that frustrating problem of just how to store your belts. Since they’re “top heavy” with a buckle on one end, they tend to slip around easily. A belt hanger features hooks attached to a hanger that you hang the buckle of your belt on. Now you won’t have to worry about them slip-sliding around, uncoiling or becoming a jumbled tangle in your drawers.
