Wooden Hangers Are Durable
You may think plastic hangers are durable, but they don’t have the lifespan of wood. Over time, those inexpensive plastic hangers will sag. And when the hanger sags, the fabric can stretch out of shape.
Durability is particularly poor for wire hangers. While there are some better quality wire hangers, most are used for dry cleaners and not meant to be used every day. Dry cleaners give them to customers because they’re inexpensive and not meant to support an entire wardrobe.
The sturdiness of the hanger is particularly important for heavier clothes, such as winter coats. A wire or plastic hanger cannot support the weight of a heavy coat, but wood can.
Maintain the Lifespan of Your Clothes
Because wooden hangers are more durable than plastic or wire, they will support your clothes better. There’s no need to worry about your clothes falling off the hanger.
Shirts will stretch more if not kept on sturdy hangers. In particular, if you’re in the habit of hanging your t-shirts, wood is the better option to maintain the shirt collar.
Make Your Closet Look Elegant
Wood hangers are more than just useful. They give your clothes a more elegant appearance when organized in your closet.
The hanger you choose adds to the presentation of your clothes, which is a concern if you enjoy showing off your closet to friends and guests. Wood hangers will show that you care about the quality of your clothes.
