Why you shouldn't hang clothes on the door and the back of a chair: the essence of superstitions

Can you hang clothes on a chair or a door

In the evening, when you come home from a hard day's work, you want to take off your work clothes and put on comfortable home clothes as soon as possible. Sometimes there is neither time nor desire to clean up, so clothes are often carelessly left on the back of a chair or on the door.

People say that this is not the right thing to do. OBOZREVATEL figured out what the essence of the sign is.

Hanging things on a chair is at least practical, though not very tidy. Shelves usually contain clean, laundered clothes, and you don't want to mix them with clothes that have already been used but are not yet dirty.

Our great-grandmothers used to say that things belong in the closet, not anywhere else. According to the most common interpretation of the sign, leaving clothes on the back of a chair means inviting hardship and financial difficulties into the house.

For an unmarried girl, this did not bode well. It has long been said that such negligence threatens girls with loneliness and the loss of a potential suitor.

According to another version, hanging clothes on the door is a sign of difficulties and troubles. Some say that it can lead to separation from the family and a long journey.

It can also cause quarrels and conflicts in the family. Everything is more or less logical here because the family may not appreciate such a mess in the room: clothes piling up, looking crumpled and untidy, and the available space diminishing.

If you hang your clothes on the back of a chair or on the door, you'll have to iron them again, as they will quickly become wrinkled. Some items can even be ruined in this way, such as business jackets or clothes made of delicate fabrics.

Therefore, it is advisable to designate a separate place in your closet for items that have already been worn but are not yet dirty.
