12 Amazing Hanger Ideas To Keep Your Home Organized
We all know that hangers are great for keeping our clothes ordered and wrinkle-free, but did you know that they can also be used for so much more? With a bit of ingenuity, hangers can be repurposed into an array of useful tools. In this tutorial, I am going to share with you some clever hanger hacks to make your life and home more efficient.
This post was transcribed by a member of the Hometalk editorial team from the original HometalkTV episode.
From creating a DIY recipe holder to upcycling plastic hangers into a clever hat organizer, this post will show you how to take advantage of the versatility of hangers and transform them into valuable resources for your home.
1. Stop Creases in Your Pants with Toilet Paper Rolls
Grab a toilet paper roll and cut a slit down the side.
Tape two rolls together and slide them onto a hanger.
Then, slide your pants over the top of the cardboard. This will prevent your pants from getting creased.
2. Organize Cords with a Pants Hanger
Take a cord and clip it into a pants hanger.
Wind the cord around the hanger.
Then clip the other end into the other clip of the pants hanger. This is a simple organization hack to keep cords tidy and untangled.
3. Prevent Clothes from Slipping with Rubber Bands
Grab a hanger and place a rubber band on each side.
Place your garments onto the hanger to keep them from slipping off the edges.
4. Avoid Crease Marks with Business Cards
When hanging pants, fold two old business cards in half and place one end over the top of the pants. Clip the cards and pants onto a pants hanger.
This will hang your pants without leaving any crease marks.
5. Turn a cheap wire hanger into a pants hanger
If you have wire hangers, grab two clothespins and clip them onto the wire hanger.
Then, clip your pants onto the hanger to prevent creases.
6. Save Space in Your Closet with a Chain
If you're short on storage space, all you need is a chain. Place one end of the chain onto the hook of your hanger and hang your first outfit on this hanger.
Then a couple of links down place the second hanger with the next shirt or outfit. Then add a third hanger the same way. This hangs your clothes vertically, saving you space in your closet as well as keeping them nice and flat.
7. Organize Accessories with Shower Curtain Rings
Grab a hanger and a package of shower curtain rings. Place all of the shower curtain rings onto the hanger or as many as you need.
Grab your necklaces and place them onto the shower curtain rings, one item per ring. This keeps your jewelry hanging nicely and makes it easy to grab when you're getting dressed.
It is also a great idea to hang scarves and belts in this manner.
Hat Organizer Idea
Grab your baseball caps and hang one hat per shower curtain ring using the loop of the cap. This hangs them sideways in your closet and is a huge space saver as well as a helpful way to find the one you want to wear easily.
8. Prevent Stretching Out Sweater Shoulders
When hanging sweaters, start by folding them in half.
Next, place the hanger upside down so that the hook is in the armpit.
Loop the sleeves up and over the hanger and tuck them through the bottom. Repeat that with the other side of the sweater.
This will keep your sweaters from stretching out.
9. Keep Your Cookbook Handy with a Pants Hanger
Place a command hook on your kitchen cabinets.
Open your cookbook to the desired page of the recipe you're using and hook it into a pants hanger. Now you can cook with ease and avoid splatters.
10. Create a DIY Magazine Rack
Place a command hook in your bathroom. Take a magazine and place it over the bottom of a hanger. Hook the hanger onto the command hook and now you have an easy magazine rack for your bathroom.
11. Create a Hanging Paper Towel Holder
Take a hanger and cut the bottom center.
Slide a paper towel roll onto either end.
Hook this into an area where you're going to need it. This is a great way to easily grab paper towels to clean your hands or workspace.
