How do I stop getting hanger marks in shirts?


Monica M asks:

My husband has a ton of golf shirts, and when they hang for a prolonged time, they get those dorky little bumps in the shoulder where the hanger has stretched them out. If they are not bad, the iron will make them go away, but if they are really big, i have to re-wash the shirt. Does anyone know how I can stop this from happening? I’ve tried using thicker plastic hangers instead of the wire ones, but that has not worked!…!?!?!?!?!?!?! Help me!

Don;t hang them. Fold them neatly and stack them in the closet.

  1. Why not fold them right out of the dryer, if you’re having to iron them anyway. I iron all my son’s shirts (t-shirts) and shorts. Plus it gives you more closet space.

  2. well metal hangers and some plastic ones too but the hangers you get from places like victoria secret or just the hangers that are like silk and real thick! they dont leave marks at all

  3. Are you placing them on the hangar while they’re still warm from ironing/dryer? That might be causing it. Let them cool down first so the fibers go back to their original shape. You can also get foam wrapped hangers that will limit those bumps (or just cut up an old towel and wrap strips of it around the ends of the hanger, and secure with tape or stitches).

  4. to get rid of “Hanger Nipples” – hang the shirt inside out, that way after prolonged hanging, when he puts the shirt on the “nipples” are reversed and do not show.
