The Skeletons in your Closet

While hangers may be the last thing on your mind when cleaning and organizing your closets, I strongly suggest you take a moment to consider the basic step of selecting the right hanger. Like in any craft, you must take the time to prepare with a base layer— the “bones” of your project. Why should organizing your closet be any different? Here are some of my personal hanger tips, along with a strong urge to prepare your canvas for a beautiful and, more importantly, functional closet.
·       Slotted Hangers (Hangers with Divots): I love these for tank tops and strappy things. However, they don’t always treat t-shirts and sweaters kindly. Be selective and match your clothing to the right hanger.
·       Pant Hangers: I love these plastic pant hangers for skirts and pants alike. They keep them wrinkle free, considering you don’t crowd them too tight!
·       Non-slip Hangers: These function as a catchall for most other items in your closet—excluding tight necked clothing. If it is hard to get the clothing on or off of the hanger then use your everyday plastic hanger with no divots. Non-slip hangers are a little tricky; I suggest you invest in a nicer brand. If you get a non-slip hanger that is too cheap, they will start to wear off on your clothing. My all-time favorite non-slip hangers are the Joy Mangano ones. Find them on the Home Shopping Network or at Target. I swear by these. Go get them, now!
·       Suit Hangers: These may see like an unnecessary investment, but it will pay off in the long run. Suits and heavy coats are clothing items that need a little more special attention. Treat them right and they’ll keep you looking sharp for years! I like these from Target.
·       Don’t forget to just use regular old hangers for tight neck shirts and or sweaters to make getting ready in the morning that much easier! If putting the item on a non-slip hanger is more difficult than helpful, don’t use it!

  1. J.S. Hanger Deluxe Wooden Pants Hangers from Bizarkdeal

    these hangers are absolutely the best i have gotten. i love the wood and the metal clasp on them , it has made it so easy for me to hang all my slacks and the jeans and keep them nice and neat. the hangers are very lightweight and they are not bulky like i have come to find with others i have purchased so you are able to use more of them and save lots of room in your closet. i like to usually air dry my jeans and with the wooden hangers they can hold the weight of damp jeans and keep them firmly grasped to where you will not have them slipping and falling to the floor and you having to launder them again. the metal hooks on the top of the hangers also will not bend allowing you to hang your garments and the hangers breaking and you having to purchase even more . they will save you a bunch of money because they are very durable and if you have clothing of different sizes the awesome metal grasp freely move on the rod allowing you to find the perfect fit for your garments. they will not become dirty but if so you can simply wipe them down, and the wood on the hangers will not break or wear out. i use these not just for pants but skirts and i have found they are perfect for all my scarfs . these are the best .
