No-Slip Hangers

No-Slip Hangers

Along with weight loss comes the need to replenish my closet.  I’ve been enchanted with Old Navy, a whole store of clothing I never was able to fit into before.  I’ve bought several tunics and dresses that were slippery and don’t stay on hangers.  I remembered I read a tip on how to fix the plastic hangers I use in the castle (call me Mommy Dearest).  I just needed a big handful of pipe cleaners!

I headed to the Dollar Store and picked up two packages of pipe cleaners in primary colors.  We were supposed to have a blizzard the next day, a Spring surprise, and I would have small chores to keep me busy when I couldn’t leave the house.  Then the blizzard didn’t happen, so I was disappointed my “To Do” list wasn’t likely going to get done, but I did need to fix those hangers.

I started rolling a pipe cleaner around the end of the plastic hanger, working my way up.  I wrapped a second pipe cleaner of the same color, to get the length just right.  I repeated the process on the other end of the hanger and tried it out, hanging a slippery shirt on the hanger.

Wow, it worked!  I was impressed and relieved I had such a simple fix.  No need to buy special hangers to prevent my clothes ending up on the floor of my closet!

Not only was I preventing the garment from slipping off the hanger, I also didn’t have the neck openings stretching all over the place. That’s never a nice look when the neck gets all stretched and shows way more flesh than I want to.

I spent what was actually a sunny day rolling pipe cleaners around hangers until I had a nice pile.  I was able to hang all my slippery things on hangers and they stayed put, plus I have extra hangers for future slippery purchases.  The household hacks post on Facebook was actually very helpful!
