Hey there!
Well, I hung 2 tops in the airing cupboard to dry, took them out and theyre kind stuck together
From what i can make out the plastic off one of the coathangers melted, and has sort of stick part of the tops together :eek:
Its only one small patch but they are stuck firm!
Is there any hope for me in separating them? And what should I try to part them?
Thankyou!!

Haha thats a bit unfortunate!

I have absolutely NO idea whether this will work, but maybe try what you do with wax. Get some greasproof paper on the bit and then iron over it til it melts. Then if it works like wax it should stick to the greeseproof paper.....

Although dont take my word for it, I doubt plastic and wax work in the same way!!

Otherwise...maybe cut a hole out and try to make it look intentional fashion-wise?
Anyway good luck!
