How to Remove Dimples From a Clothes Hanger


It is never a good idea to hang quality clothing on an unpadded hanger. The curved ends of plastic and wire hangers stretch, warp and dimple the fabrics that hangs on them. Dimples from wire or plastic hangers are fairly easy to fix, though. Like wrinkles, they are warped and stretched fibers. Relaxing the fibers and then allowing them to shrink back without the influence of the hanger is the best remedy.

Things You'll Need

  • Spray bottle
  • Steam cleaner
  • Drying rack
  • Relax the clothing fibers with heat and moisture. Spray the dimples with hot water from a spray bottle until they are well saturated. Or place the garment on a drying rack in a steamy bathroom. A clothing steamer passed over the fibers a few times will also work.

  • Massage the fibers between your fingers to relax the dimple.

  • Hang the garment on a drying rack to allow it to air dry if necessary. As the fibers dry, they will shrink back to their original shape. Or for a quicker dry, use a hair dryer.

  • Iron the dimpled sections to remove any remaining traces if necessary.
