One in 10 adults has a ‘floordrobe’ where their clean clothes end up


One in 10 adults has a ‘floordrobe’ – where most of their clean clothes end up piled on the floor, according to a study. Other unconventional ways to store clothes include a pile on a chair, in the washing basket and a suitcase.

A study of 2,000 people found 44% confessed to being guilty of simply chucking their clothes in a heap after they’ve been worn. Nearly nine in 10 (87%) even have clothes they never wear – because they’ve forgotten they existed, are too crumpled – or can’t be found at all.

As a result, 27% have items of clothing they’re not able to wear regularly, according to the study for Lenor Crease Releaser. In response to these findings, the laundry company has teamed up with organising experts, The Style Sisters, to address this phenomenon and help tame the nation’s ‘floordrobes.’

They shared their expertise, emphasising the importance of organisation and offering practical tips to help the nation reclaim its wardrobe space. The Style Sisters said: “By implementing simple organisation techniques, such as categorising clothes and utilising storage solutions, individuals can transform their ‘floordrobes’ into functional and stylish spaces.

“Fixing a ‘floordrobe’ can feel daunting at first, but a well-organised wardrobe not only streamlines your routine but also saves you time in the long run. Sorting a pile of crumpled clean clothes can seem like a chore but for those who don’t want to iron every item, using the Lenor Crease Releaser is a great quick fix. When rehanging your clothes just use a quick spray, smooth and pull the fabric and the creases will vanish before your eyes.”

Due to a lack of space, 23% stuff as many clothes as possible into their wardrobe, leaving them crinkled and creased. But as a result, 14% don’t wear certain items in their wardrobe because they can’t be bothered to iron them.

Nearly three in 10 (28%) also claimed they never iron their clothes – with only 78% even owning an ironing board. And 28% have even resorted to hanging up a piece of clothing while they took a shower, in the hope the steam would get out some creases. The research, carried out via OnePoll, also revealed 11% have never had a proper wardrobe clear out and reset.

Nina Lumsden, spokesperson for Lenor Crease Releaser, added: “When your outfit looks polished and neat, you automatically feel more put together and confident. It’s not just about appearance; it’s about how you feel in your clothes. We are passionate about empowering the nation to care for their clothes and garments.”
