I’m an organising pro – here’s how to correctly store your jumpers & sweaters to make sure you don't stretch them | The Sun

HANDS up if you're guilty of getting home from a cold winter's day, flinging off your jumper and just shoving it in the cupboard without a second thought?

Yup, us too. But did you know there's apparently a correct way to store them and if you don't you risk stretching them permanently.


Well, according to Jeeves_ny who is a cleaning and organising pro online, jumpers should always be folded not hung.

Jeeves took to TikTok to share how a user had stretched her jumper.

She said: "I guess this is why they say not to hang your knitwear. "

Jeeves said: “This is a very tough lesson and I’m sorry for your loss but we’re going to learn from it.”

Jeeves said: “Or folded laid flat for two reasons.”

He said: “First reason that we saw in the video is that the sweater or knit itself can stretch it out.”

He continued: “And number two cheap hangers like wire hangers can reshape the shoulder and actually poke holds in it and wear that fabric over time.” 

Jeeves concluded: “This is not great.”
