Have you ever put on a sweater, only to see that one or both shoulders had become badly puckered from being hung up? Sometimes it's even necessary to rewash and reshape the sweater to make it presentable
enough to wear. This recently happened to me, so when I came across this video by Woman's Day, (posted by Tip Hero) I was intrigued. Could there really be a good way to hang up sweaters?
After watching the video, I asked myself, "Why have I never thought of this?"
I tried this technique myself, and it works! No more bagged-out shoulders or sagging sweaters. Sweaters that have been taking up a lot of valuable closet shelf space can now be hung up without fear of ruining them.
Perhaps you already know this trick? But if not, I'm excited to share it with you and it's as easy as 1 - - 2 - - 3!
# 1. Fold sweater in half length-wise, shoulder to shoulder with sleeves matches up. (If it is a cardigan, you should probably button it first.)
# 2. Lay a hanger down on top of the sweater, so that the hook part rests upside-down in the armpit of the sweater.
# 3. Drape the arms of the sweater across to opposite side of the hanger, so they rest parallel along the top of the hanger; then fold the body of the sweater down over the arms.
That's it! That's all there is to it, and your sweater will is ready to be hung in your closet - without risking unsightly poof-marks on one or both shoulders that so often appear when a sweater is hung the traditional way!
