How to make your clothes hangers grippy

The humble coat hanger. Didn't think you could improve it? Think again.

Whether your wardrobe is overflowing or you like to keep things simple and organised, you'll know how frustrating it can be when your clothes keep slipping off their hangers.

With Sugru Mouldable Glue is super easy to do, and it's great at keeping any strap tops, dresses or vests off your wardrobe floor. One single-use pack of Sugru is enough to adapt two clothes hangers.

Once you've gathered some of your hangers this is about a 5-15 minute project, depending how many you're doing. Get them done after dinner and the Sugru will be set in 12-24 hours, leaving you to marvel at your own handy work.

Sugru is hand mouldable and sticks to most materials, so it's easy to adapt things to work the way you want them to. Plus it's removable, so you can take it off if you ever want to.

And this is just the beginning, once you start improving things with Sugru it can get addictive! You'll begin to notice other things around your home that you could improve yourself — like stopping your hair straighteners burning your furniture or protecting kitchen surfaces by giving things rubber feet!

This project was inspired by Sugru-er Vik, who shared his clever idea for everyone to copy! Thanks Vik :)
