How to Get Hanger Bumps Out on a Shirt's Shoulder Images

All types of clothing can end up getting unattractive bump marks on the shoulder from being hung frequently on a hanger. These bumps take away from the clothing's appeal and can give off the notion that the wearer is not tidy or professional in a work setting. While precautions can be taken to keep new clothes from getting hanger bumps, such as not hanging your clothes or using padded hangers, there is a simple way to get rid of these bumps if you already have them.

Step 1

Pull on the shirt.

Step 2

Wet your fingers in running water.

Step 3

Rub your fingers across the knitwear bump forcefully for 5 to 10 seconds.

Step 4

After the bump is damp, flatten it more with your dry fingertips.

Step 5

Wait for the area to dry for about 10 minutes.

Step 6

Repeat if necessary.
