Last night I was sorting and organizing and purging our closet. What a great feeling to accomplish, but you really have to be in the mood for a project like that!
Happily, I was and it ended up being a very beneficial hour spent. There is now a large pile of clothing that we are going to be donating. Hooray! I even managed to transfer the winter clothing to the tippy top shelves of the closet and bring down the summer clothing.
One of the problems I have in the closet is that sometimes dresses or shirts with a rounded neckline tend to slip off the hangers. This drives me crazy! Do you know what I mean?
I saw something in The Old House magazine that I am going to try in an effort to combat this slip and slide off phenomenon!
Using scraps of sandpaper they glued it to the top of a wood hanger. They show it working well for jackets too, which is a good idea. Obviously my entire closet isn’t going to have hangers like this, but it would be useful to have about 10 of them! I am putting this on my “things to do” project list!
Another interesting use for sandpaper they noted in the article was to use it to scuff up the bottoms of new leather soled shoes. Use a heavy grit (rough) sandpaper for this task. This will help you have better traction with the new shoes and prevent slips and falls.
