There’s nothing more frustrating than taking out your favorite Nordstrom tank-top from the closet to discover wrinkles, stretches and general wear and tear. Let’s face it, you don’t always have time to iron before heading out. Store your clothes properly and take care of your garments now so you won’t have to do damage control later. Learning what to hang and what to fold is easy:
Fold: Jeans are made from rugged material and should be folded in your drawer without the worry of wrinkling or shape distortion. Go ahead, fold ‘em up!
Cotton shirts and blouses
Hang: Cotton shirts and blouses will stay virtually wrinkle-free when hung on hangers. No need to stress over the shoulders of your favorite cotton tee stretching out over the hanger.
Hang: Linens store perfect on a hanger in the closet. No wrinkles, no worries.
Silks and satin tops
Hang: Silks and delicate fabrics like satin, velvet, chiffon and taffeta crush easily, so they should be neatly and smoothly hung in the closet. Folding them may cause the shirt to fold in odd areas against more rugged clothes. Better to hang silks and satins to avoid the trouble!
Knitwear and sweaters
Fold: We love our knitwear and sweaters for their perfect, cozy fit. However, hanging them after you’ve done the laundry may cause them to stretch out and lose that wonderful shape. Instead, neatly fold them away.
Outdoor jackets, overcoats, suit jackets, blazers
Hang: Like jeans, outdoor jackets and blazers are durable enough to handle a hanger. Try curved suit hangers to help maintain the shape.
Hang: Hang your fun skirts on the special hangers with movable slips to prevent wrinkling in the wrong places.
Fold: Whether you’re putting away an ornamented evening gown or a flowing maxi dress, it’s best to fold it until your next wear. The weight of long dresses naturally hang low and pull the straps, stretching and wearing them out. So, fold it neatly in a drawer!
Hang: Trousers tend to wrinkle easily, so hanging them saves you from an unnecessary ironing session.
Fold: They’re durable and made of rougher material. They can handle a neat fold.
Ties and belts
Hang it: Keep ties and belts lasting as long as possible by simply hanging them over a hanger and storing them in the closet.

I love giving my clothes an extra fresh boost after laundry by a light spritz of Grab Green Room and Fabric Freshener. Choose between yummy scents like Immortelle with Jasmine, Vetiver or Lavender with Vanilla, gently spray over clothes in your closet or draw, and enjoy a natural, long-lasting scent on your next use.
