Have more wire hangers than you have clothes? Check out some helpful things that you can do with extra wire hangers you have hanging (pun intended) around!
- Fish Things Out of Tight Spots: dropped your keys behind a couch or lose something under the stove? Just grab a wire hanger to fish the item back to safety.
- Trellis Plants: plants with weak stems, like tomatoes, need to be trellised to be able to reach their full height. You can use a wire hanger for this kind of job. Just weave together a few hangers in a crosshatch pattern or affix some unadulterated hangers to a wooden frame to give your plants the support they need. Head here for an idea of how to do this.
- Re-string a Draw String: when a drawstring falls out of a sweatshirt, sweatpants, a pair of swim trucks, etc, it can be near impossible to try to re-string it. However, you can do the trick more easily by stretching out a hanger, creating a small loop to hold the knotted end of the string, then feeding the string and hanger through the band together.
- Unclogging a Drain: you can use a straightened wire hanger to unclog a stubborn drain.
