Speed Up Your Shirt-Hanging Routine with a Simple Trick

We love the two-second t-shirt folding technique we featured a few years back, but if you’re more of a hanger than a folder, home blog Apartment Therapy’s got a few pointers to help you speed up getting your shirts on hangers.

The basic trick: Just put your arm arm through the 10 or so shirts, get a stack of hangers at the ready, and start hanging.

Place your arm inside the bottom of the first t-shirt and exit your hand through the neck hole. No it won’t seem natural, but yes, you’re doing it right. Continue to layer all shirts on your arm in this manner. It’ll be a full house, but don’t worry, they’ll all fit.

With the arm not inside the shirts, grab a hanger from the pile. Angle it through the neckhole, and into the shoulders—while at the same time pulling the hook of the hanger taught and away from the shirt and thus, pulling the hanger up and off your arm.

It’s not quite as mind-blowing in action as the previously mentioned folding method, but it seems like a small improvement that could pick up the pace a little next time you’re hanging laundry.
