The Simple Secret To Making Any Hanger Non-Slip

I have a love-hate relationship with non-slip hangers. They're really nice for hanging up specific shirts and sweaters that tend to slip off of normal plastic hangers. But I hate using non-slip hangers for my normal shirts, because it makes it much harder to get my shirts on and off… Continue Reading

  1. I’ve used the rubber band method before, but am going to try the pipe cleaners to help keep my husbands pants on the hanger.

    • When I was picturing this in my mind I thought about this. I haven’t tried it yet but could you fold the end under and then wrap the pipe cleaner around the hanger covering the end. I was thinking of trying it because an ex-pipe smoker just gave me a ton of pipe cleaner – all beige.

  2. I tuck the sharp ends under the other rounds. This works for me. I think nipping off the little wire ends might cause the cleaner to unravel.

  3. I don’t like using the rubberband method anymore as the bands starve/dry out/crack … whatever it is and it sticks on the hanger and all the work to get it from the hanger.
    I will try our other methods.
    Thanks

  4. Actually, I don’t hang shirts the conventional way. I do not like the strange bumps on the shoulders. I partially fold the top or sweater to fit the hanger and drape it over the bottom part of the hanger.
    For the long-sleeved shirts and sweaters, I put the sleeve inside the garment.

  5. I found a really neat way to keep from having bumps on the shoulders. This is not my original idea because I saw it somewhere. It does take a little bit more closet space, but so far this fall and winter it has worked well. I went to the home improvement store and bought pipe insulation by the “noodle”. It really looks like a skinny pool noodle and mine is gray. They come in long lengths and you can make enough for several hangers. Take a coat hanger and I suggest it not be one of the felted kind or metal, but maybe the plastic kind works best. Cut the length you need to go from the end of the hanger to the center where you find the hanging hook. Do this for both sides of the hanger. On one side of the insulation make a slit all the way on one long side. Slip the slit section over the top of the hanger for a DIY padded hanger. You will need one for each end of the hanger. I also saw someone tried toilet tissue rolls, but I didn’t find them sturdy enough.

  6. NO on the rubber bands in my house of cats who would love to chew those, and that could end up with a big vet bill or worse. But love the glue idea!

  7. I have recently begun a project of crocheting a single crochet stitch around my hangers. This will be a timely process to complete them all, but I am in no hurry, and plan to do them as I feel so inclined to. They work great! They also look pretty! I saw several different ideas for this on Pinterest, and for myself, a quick stitch around will be best! I just wanted cushion for the shoulders, and grip for my slacks! These keep my sleeveless hanging perfectly!

  8. I tried the hot glue method and after a few months it peeled off! I have begun crocheting or gluing(fastest method) cloth strips on the hanger sides and securing them with a ball of hot glue at the bottom. The cloth helps the glue stay in place and it doesn’t peel off. I only do the bottom of the hanger if I will be hanging pants on them, that way I can tell which are which of course! I buy unbleached muslin, as it is usually the most inexpensive and won’t bleed color into the clothes. I then tear it into 1/2-inch strips, you can pink them if the frays bother you and usually glue them on. I like the crocheting method a lot but monotony ruled the day and I began gluing! Your choice.
