✔️ Knitted and Knitwear Items
Sweaters, turtlenecks, and cardigans are also best placed in a drawer or on a shelf. Yes, they are often hung on hangers in stores, but it's not the most suitable solution for long-term storage. When hung, knitted garments, like anything subjected to relentless gravity, can stretch. And I'm sure you don't want the sleeves of your favorite sweater to reach your knees, do you?
Another point to consider is that when tightly squeezed among other hanging clothes, knitted items lose their airiness and fluffiness. Have I convinced you? Well, then, let's proceed to folding.
When creating stacks of knitted items, avoid making them too tall. Ideally, each stack should contain no more than two or three items. Place them, following the principle of heavier items at the bottom and lighter items on top. Alternatively, store them vertically.
Important! Items containing natural wool should be protected from moths. Purchase sachets with a lavender scent, which not only provide a pleasant aroma but also repel pests.
✔️ Underwear, Socks, Tights
Here's my advice: invest in specialized organizers for storing underwear, socks, tights, and bras. These organizers can be placed inside drawers or cabinets, helping you keep the smallest wardrobe items in perfect order.
→ When selecting an organizer, make sure the compartment for bras is at least 30-40 cm long to avoid folding them in half, which is undesirable for certain styles.
→ When folding panties, fold the right and left sides in a way that they overlap, and then fold the lower part to create a rectangle or square shape.
This way, you can store them vertically, quickly find what you need, and easily access them without disrupting the order.
→ The most popular way to fold socks is to pair them by folding one inside the other, with the top folded out to secure the pair. However, personally, I don't prefer this method. Firstly, it can stretch the elastic and damage the socks. Secondly, this type of storage doesn't look very neat. It's much more convenient and visually appealing to fold sock pairs into tidy rectangles, as shown in the photo.
