Do you ever have trouble with clothes, especially jackets and coats, sliding off their plastic hangers and ending up in a pile on the bottom of the closet? Drives.me.nuts! Here's what a did to fix the problem.

Where do you buy that? What exactly is it called?
I have this exact problem and usually have to zip or button all my jackets just to keep them from landing on the floor.

Great idea, where did you purchase it???

Fantastic idea - I would have never thought of that. Thanks for sharing!

Note to other comment posters: that is self-adhesive first-aid bandage tape... should be available wherever Ace Bandages are sold. I know Nexcare makes some.

Clever, clever, clever! What a great idea to use on kids clothes hangers!!! It think I pick up more shirts and dresses off of the floor of my childrens closets than I do anything else in the house. Thanks for the tip!

Excellent idea! My hubby likes wood hangers and it's the same story. I'm gonna try this!

This is such a great idea!!!
This is a problem that we have had constantly with clothes in our closet!
I would love to know exactly what this is and where you purchased it!

Great idea! Darn! If I'd only thought of it when I was having daily blood draws... I threw away a TON of the stuff.
