It’s that time of year again – time to think about spring cleaning. Your wardrobe is no exception. You have to decide what to keep and what to donate, but you also have to decide how best to store your clothes for the coming months.
You can fold them and store them in the closet if you have enough space. You can also hang them on hangers. Do not use wire or plastic hangers; Instead, use wooden hangers to keep your jeans in shape.
The proper way to store jeans is on a hanger and kept in a breathable garment bag. This keeps them from getting stretched and helps them keep their shape. You can also fold your jeans to avoid creasing. If you are storing jeans for an extended period of time, wrap them in acid-free tissue paper first to prevent color loss.
10 places to store jeans
Jeans are considered by many to be the quintessential casual pants. They can be dressed up or down and they have been a fashion staple since the 1950s. Due to the popularity of jeans, most people own more than one pair.
It’s easy to just hang them in your closet, but if you want to keep them in better condition, there are other options available.
1. In the jeans drawer
This is the most obvious place to store jeans, although it’s not necessarily the best. If you have a lot of jeans and a small dresser, this could be a good option. However, if you have a large chest of drawers with a lot of empty space, jeans can look messy and wrinkled if they are in other clothes. It also makes them hard to find.
Curled up in a drawer – Rolling can help minimize wrinkling and reduce the amount of space required for storage. However, this method doesn’t work well for pairs with a lot of creases or creases, as they become permanently trapped in the fabric.
2. In shoe boxes or airtight containers
This is a smart way to keep your jeans organized, especially if you use stackable shoe boxes that fit in your drawers. Measure each pair of jeans, then pack enough boxes so that each pair will fit into a pair of jeans.
Store clothes in airtight containers – If you want to store your clothes for a long time, use soft plastic bags or boxes with lids instead of cardboard boxes as these can absorb moisture and cause a musty smell on clothes due to exposure to moisture from the environment.
3. Use a hanger or rack
If you want to store jeans ready to wear, but don’t want any signs of creasing, hanging them up is a great solution. Use a sturdy hanger and loop each jeans leg around it, making sure to keep both loops in place. If you want an even easier storage solution and have plenty of space, consider using a clothes rack.
On a hanger with trouser hangers – Jeans are too heavy for regular hangers, but trouser hangers keep them from stretching and looking weirdly long when you hang them. They’re also easier to find than folding them up and storing them in a drawer or closet.
On a hanger with clips – If you don’t want to invest in trouser hangers, you can use regular hangers with clips from the hardware store! This is also great for skirts and scarves as they stay put without falling off the hanger.
4. Hang them in your closet
The easiest place to store jeans is in your closet or on a clothes rack. If you have a lot of space, consider hanging all your jeans together on one clothes rail.
So you can easily see everything you have at once and choose which pairs you want to wear that specific day.
It also helps keep them organized and prevents wrinkles from forming while they are stored. If you don’t have that much space, consider hanging a few pairs together based on color or purpose (dressed vs. casual).
5. Hang from a trouser rack
The easiest and most space-saving way to store jeans is to hang them on hangers. However, do not use regular clothes hangers, as they are too thin and cause your jeans to lose their shape. Instead, invest in a trouser rack with hangers designed specifically for jeans.
6. Store in a cloth bag
Keeping your jeans in a cloth bag protects them from dust and insects that can nibble on the cotton. Cloth bags also help prevent moisture damage if you live somewhere damp or damp, and keep dirt at bay if you live somewhere dusty or dirty.
Another alternative is to fold your jeans and stack them neatly on shelves in your closet. This method works best if you have several pairs of jeans in different styles and colors, making it easier to find the perfect pair every morning for work or school.
Just make sure your shelves are high enough for folded jeans – you don’t want a pile of denim falling to the floor!
8. In a dresser
If you have one or two extra drawers in your dresser, you can use them to store your jeans. Just fold them up and slide them into an empty drawer. This works especially well if you have a lot of jeans, but no room to hang them in your closet. It also makes it easy to sort your jeans when picking out an outfit because they’re all in one place.
9. Under the bed
Jeans kept under the bed may not be as accessible as those in other areas of your bedroom, but they’ll be out of sight and out of mind until you’re ready to wear them again. Just remember: bed skirts can hide a lot more than people think; so if you do put a pair of jeans underneath it, make sure to pop the skirt up every now and then so it doesn’t fall over your clothes and choke them.
10. In the laundry room
If you have a stackable washer and dryer, it’s a great way to take advantage of the available vertical space in your laundry room. Keep jeans where they belong – with other items that need to be washed before wearing them again. Just remember not to dry them as soon as they come out of the wash; hang them up so they don’t wrinkle more than necessary.
Also keep in mind that washing machines and dryers vibrate a lot when they are on; so if you store jeans on or next to the machines while they are in use, those jeans could end up on the floor at the end of a load cycle.
In short, if you store your jeans properly, they will stay looking like new for a long time. Incorrect storage can change the shape and color of your jeans. And, depending on the quality of the material, they can even shrink!
