I saw this idea online several months ago and decided to give it a try. I really like it. It’s so much easier to find what I’m looking for, or to look at all my shirts at once to decide what to wear. My shirts do come out a bit wrinkled, but I think they did when I stacked them on top of each other, too.
Which brings me to my next “thing.”
Thing #23. Spray clothes with water to get rid of wrinkles.
I do this just about every day before I get dressed. I pull something out of my closet or a drawer and discover a few wrinkles or a crease. I put the garment on a padded hanger, spray the wrinkles, and do whatever else I need to do to get ready other than putting on that piece of clothing. I’m sure this works because of the kind of fabric I tend to wear and the fact that I live in a very dry place (Colorado), but give it a go and see how it works for you. Some fabrics don’t like water, so test a hidden area first to be sure you don’t leave water spots on your clothes.
This tip is especially helpful when traveling. I’ve tried various methods of folding clothes in a suitcase—including rolling rather than folding—and things still seem to come out wrinkled. So now, when I arrive at my motel (or friend’s house), I take out all my clothes, hang them up (if possible) and give them all a spray. (I pack an empty spray bottle and fill it with water at my destination.) Wrinkles are usually gone the next morning.
