No More Slips

Martha Stewart Living, January 2009

Swatches of Ultrasuede fabric, affixed to wooden hangers with a bit of craft glue, provide just enough traction to keep delicate blouses, camisoles, and other hard-to-hang garments from tumbling to the closet floor.

    The Container Store sells precut, pre-sticky strips of foam sized perfectly for your existing hangers for about $2. I believe there were enough in the package to do 24 hangers. They work great.

    As others have mentioned, Huggable Hangers by Joy Mangano (hsn.com) are the best and since they only about 1/4 inch wide, they take up no room in your closet (not bulky and come in lots of colors). Huggable Hangers are sometimes on sale on hsn.com.

    Foolsgal, go to www.hsn.com and search huggable hangers. You should easily link to the information you seek.. I just buy white with blue slip guard hangers at Wal-Mart. You'll know them when you see them. They come in a four pack. The hook swivels which makes it easy to hang something over a door or from a door frame for drying appropriate delicates. They're economical, too.

    Great idea! A good rainy day project in front of the TV with a good movie. I have issue with garments sliding off. Question for 'kewi', the previous commentor - What are huggable hangers and where do you find them?

    I use "Huggable Hangers" by Joy Mangano. They save space and my clothes donn n n t fall off. I like things very simple. Donn n n t think I would take the time to do this.
