17 Surprising Ways You're Ruining Your Clothes

  • You've been washing, folding, and storing your clothes all wrong.
    You've been washing, folding, and storing your clothes all wrong.
  • 3. You're folding your leather pants or skirts instead of hanging them.

    This will create creases and wrinkles, which will be very difficult to get rid of because you should never iron or steam leather. To prevent the creases from forming, hang your pants with a clip hanger. Use business cards to protect the fabric from the grooves of the clips so they don't leave marks.

  • 4. You're storing your clothes in the dry-clean plastic bags.

    As soon as you get your dry-cleaning back, take your clothes out of the bags. Fabric needs to breathe, and the plastic can trap odors and humidity. If your clothes wrinkle inside your closet, it's because you have the hangers shoved too close together. To prevent crease and wrinkles, leave an inch in between each hanger.

  • 11. You're ironing delicate fabrics.

    Irons are way too harsh for most fabrics (like silk or fabrics with embellishments) and can leave marks if you're not careful. Invest in a handheld steamer or try hanging the item in a super steamy bathroom for a few minutes.

  • 12. You're storing your shoes in big buckets.

    The best way to maintain the shape of your shoes and keep them clean is to store them upright, one of each pair in the front row and its match right behind it. This way you can see everything at once and don't have to struggle to see what's hidden in the back.
