There have been many surprising social media trends over the years, but our latest obsession with cleaning and tidying may be one of the most unexpected.
We spend hours of our precious time watching the likes of Mrs Hinch unpack her shopping and clean out her oven and accounts like @thehomeedit transforming chaotic cupboards into colour co-ordinated, perfectly organised works of arts – so much so, that the show is now one of most highly binged series on Netflix. This has encouraged us to take our spring clean far beyond just an annual occurrence – and the easiest fix can begin in our wardrobes.
Investing in a uniform set of hangers will will not only make rails of clothing look far more aesthetically pleasing and finally reduce our ever-growing floordrobe, but it encourages us to sort and keep only the things that bring us joy – Marie Kondo-style.
It’s also important to ensure that your clothing is stored away on the correct type of hanger as this can actually increase its longevity and cares for it by keeping it in shape. If space is an issue, there are innovative solutions like multi-garment options as well as items that will hang all your belts, ties and scarves in one, freeing up your draw space.
There are even hangers that you can have engraved to mark a special occasion like your wedding.
From economical plastic to luxurious wooden hangers, we have gathered the best.
