We recently received a request from dedicated Hijabtrendz reader Saida. She sent us an email asking how to organize her hijabs.
That is definitely one of those “million dollar” questions, because it can get complicated and downright frustrating.
Saida, we searched far and wide for some options, and here is what we came up with:
First you have to evaluate the types of scarves that you own and put them in several piles.
One pile can be silk georgette, the other can be polyester, the third pile can be cotton and so on.
After you figure out that pile then begin separating the scarves by the type of style, one pile will be silk georgette wrap scarf, and another pile will be silk georgette square scarf.
We know it’s getting complicated. But once you do this, hopefully you can maintain it and not have to do it again.
If you want you can divide your scarves up even more by additionally sorting them into color piles. Once you’ve gotten all this out of the way, the question is how to store them?
We have tried everything from dedicating a few dresser drawers, to storing scarves on a huge closet shelf, to even hanging them from hangers made for pants. The main issue we found in all of these cases is the tendency of the scarf to crease or wrinkle. Talk about annoying! We wish there was a better way to store scarves so that you could eliminate the ironing.
Check out these items that may help with storage:
Scarf hanger $7.99 holds up to ten
Swiveling tie/scarf hanger $3.99 (looks a little flimsy)
Hijab hanger $12.99 (not sure this is going to keep things wrinkle free)
Other ideas include using some type of storage accessory like a shoe holder that hangs over your door. Or a plastic drawer set that you can hide in your closet.
If you store your scarves in a closed area (dresser, box, etc.) then read our previous tip on how to keep them fresh and smelling good.
