Putting clothes away properly: What actually belongs folded, what on the hanger?
by Stephanie Vinzens
Clothes hangers are household appliances used to hang clothes in cupboards or wardrobes. They are modeled after the shoulder shape of humans and are used to hang and stow outerwear such as coats and jackets, but also shirts and blouses. Often they still have a crossbar on which you can hang trousers. Some ironing variants are also designed exclusively for trousers. With the hook in the middle, the clothes hangers are then lined up in a space-saving way on a bar, usually in a wardrobe. This allows a quick search without causing wrinkles in the clothing.
