Here are our top 3 types of hangers and tips for how to use them:
- Plastic Hangers - Great for shirts, blouses and light weight garments. Most natural fiber clothing (cotton, silk) drape well and won't leave an unsightly hanger dent in your clothing. These hangers come in a variety of colors and won't take up too much room in your closet.
- Cloth Covered Hangers - Purchase hangers covered in velvet, satin or something padded to prevent clothes from sliding off and from stretching out the shoulders. To add your own padding, purchase a few short pieces of foam and wrap around the shoulder of the hanger.
- Hanger with Clips - These closet staples are still the best bet for hanging trousers and women's slacks. Hang slacks by the waist band and you'll never need to iron the horizontal line at the knees again!
