30 Jan Got Clothes Hooks but No Loops in Your Clothes?
Barefoot Gal has tons of clothes hooks. Lots of places to hang our jackets, towels, swimsuits and more.
There’s just one problem: most of our clothes don’t have hanging loops and we feared that the thin hooks would soon poke holes in them.
I figured I’d sew loops into the necks. Someday. Eventually. In my free time.
Dave, on the other hand, came up with an ingenious and quick solution: he grabbed a binder clip that was sitting on the nav station and clipped it on the neck of his wind shirt, then put it over the hook.
Great! Got one job crossed off the to-do list without doing a thing.
Long term, I’m a little worried about the steel clips rusting in the salt air and possibly staining our clothing or towels, so I just ordered some plastic hanger clips. They’re designed to be used on hangers, but I think they’ll be perfect on the clothes hooks.
They’re a Mainstays product, but seem to be discontinued at the Walmart stores. I found them on Amazon, but I’m sure you could find similar clips at many stores — just be sure they’re all plastic with no metal.
By the way, we’ve found wind shirts (basically a pullover wind breaker) to be our most-used jacket in the Keys this winter. We wear them far more often than our fleece pullovers!
