Welcome to our article on hanging your jeans correctly with three different techniques.
If you have space in your closet to hang your denim, I suggest you do it. However, space might be a premium with all the clothes you own. If there isn’t a lot of space to hang them, folding your jeans and putting them into a cubby or drawer is an excellent way to store your tall jeans.

How To Hang Jeans
Total Time: 3 min
Before you think about hanging your jeans, you will want to ensure they are clean. Jeans, unlike other clothes, do not need to be cleaned regularly. However, wash your jeans properly every few months to avoid a smelly closet. Iron the jeans if needed and learn how to dry your jeans without a dryer as well, to be sure you don’t shrink them.
Now, learn how to hang jeans in closet.
1. Grab a standard clothes hanger
Grab a standard clothes hanger. A classic clothes hanger is shaped like a triangle. It has two diagonal bars and a horizontal bar at the bottom.
2. Fold the jeans in half vertically
Fold the jeans in half vertically. Make sure the hand pockets are on the inside, and the seat of the jeans is on the outside.
3. Hook your hanger over a stable object
Hook your hanger over something stable, such as a closet rod or lip of a door frame. Doing so will allow you to use both hands for the hanging process.
4. Slip the jeans through the hanger cuff first
Slip the jeans through the hanger, and drape them across the bar by the leg part. The waistband should be touching the cuffs.
5. Adjust the jeans to finish
If you notice the jeans slipping off the hanger, you must adjust them. Either tug on the waistband or the ankles. Do this until the jeans hang across the bar without slipping.
6. Secure the jeans with clothespins (optional)
If your jeans keep sliding off, you can secure them with a clothespin. Clip a clothespin or two across the horizontal bar.
Hang Jeans On A Hanger With Clips
Total Time: 3 min
1. Get a hanger with clips attached for your jeans
Get a hanger with clips attached to it. These hangers are suitable for most pants, especially jeans, but they may leave some imprints in leather or pleather pants unless you use cushioning (such as index cards).
2. Clip the jeans by the waist to the hanger
Clip the jeans by the waistband to the hanger. Each clip should be about 1 inch (2.54 centimetres) away from the outside edge of the waistband. The clips on most hangers are adjustable. They can slide across the bar back and forth. Move the clips around as necessary.
3. Fold jeans in half vertically if too big to hang on clips
If your jeans are too wide for your hanger, fold them in half vertically. If you do not have a lot of vertical space in your closet, fold your jeans in half vertically, then horizontally. You will be clipping them by the knee part.
Hang Jeans On A Clamping Pants Hanger
Total Time: 3 ming
1. Get a clamping pants hanger for your jeans
Get a clamping pants hanger. These are usually made of wood, consisting of two horizontal bars that pull together. They are ideal for hanging dress pants but work perfectly for jeans as well.
2. Fold the jeans in half before clamping
Fold the jeans in half vertically. The hand pockets should be on the inside, and the seat of the jeans should be on the outside.
3. Open the clamping hanger
Open the hanger. Grip the hook part of the hanger and pull it towards you. The two horizontal bars should open up.
4. Place the jean cuffs between the bars
Place the cuffs between the bars. You will be hanging the jeans by the cuffs, not by the waist. This is because bulky things, such as buttons and zippers, get in the way. They prevent the hanger from closing together all the way.
It is better to fold your jeans for ease in your day. Denim is a very giving fabric that allows it to be mishandled for long periods without wrinkling or creasing. A simple file fold is all that is needed for your jeans.
