Take a look at the hangers you use for the garments in your closet. Are they wire? Wood? Plastic? Velvet? Maybe you have a mix of all of them, or perhaps you’ve collected enough of each type over the years as your go-to. But have you ever taken a good look at how it affects your garments? Depending on the type of garment, the hanger can make or break its longevity, so it’s essential to use the best ones for each clothing type.

Wooden Hangers

These hangers are the most durable of all the hanger choices and have an aesthetic appeal. They are usually wider than other hangers and hold their shape. Another benefit: depending on the type of wood used, it can also serve as a pest repellent! These are best suited for heavy items such as coats and blazers.

Velvet Hangers

Velvet hangers are great to use for delicate clothing, and their anti-slip surface keeps the garment in place.

Aesthetically, they are also pleasing to the eye and come in a wide variety of colors.

They can also work well for cotton garments as they do not leave points in the shoulders.

Metal Hangers

These hangers are also very durable, like wooden hangers. They also save your clothing from stretching out. The only downside to this type of hanger is that they are not as widely sold in stores and usually need to be special ordered and cost a bit more money.

Satin/Fabric Hangers

These types of hangers are also great for all your delicate clothing, but they can ultimately be used for various kinds of garments. Additionally, they include padding to support the longevity of your garments further.
