How many times have you gone to pull that sweater out of your closet, only to find it completely wrinkled and stretched out after it's been hanging in the same spot for far too long?
"If I had only folded it, this would have never happened!", you might be saying to yourself.
Don't beat yourself up. Take it as a lesson learned and use the following technique to help you avoid the same mistake in the future.
Open up your (unwrinkled) sweater and lay it on a flat surface like your bed.
Take the right arm of the sweater and cross it over to fold it in half vertically. Both arms should be evenly lined up.
Next, take your hanger and rotate it 90 degrees such that it looks like an upside-down letter "L". Place the hanger on top of your now folded sweater with the middle of the hanger resting on the sweater's armpit area.
Take the bottom half of the sweater and cross it over the left side of the hanger. Repeat the same thing for the sleeves on the right side of the hanger.
From there, rotate the sweater (on the hanger) "clockwise" 90 degrees.
Congrats! Hopefully next time you won't be panicking 30 minutes before you need to wear it. No more wrinkles, hanger bumps, or stretching. We can't promise that moths haven't gotten to it, however!
