Hooray for bumpy sweaters! Let’s put all our knitware on wire hangers and revitalize the mid-80s style of lovely shoulder pads.

Oh. Wait. Is that not a cool look anymore? Good to know. No problem, no problem at all. Switching gears…

You can get rid of sweater bumps in a snap – all you need is an ice cube and a paper towel.

Here’s how:

Save Your Sweater with an Ice Cube

When you realize you’re rocking a sweater bump, grab an ice cube. While wearing the sweater, run the ice cube vigorously over the area until the fabric is damp (but not wet). Depending on how thick your sweater’s material is, this will take 15 - 45 seconds.

Then, lightly press a paper towel or dry cloth over the wet spot, which will press the fibers back into place. As the water dries, the fibers will shrink and your knitware will return to its normal, fashionable state.

Prevent Bumps by Using Your Drawers

Ok, now that the bump-crisis has been averted, prevent future problems! Hangers are usually the problem, so clear out a few drawers and fold your wovens. If drawer space isn’t an option for you, place a shelf specifically for sweaters in your closet.
