Also, to prevent stray measuring cups, attach one, easy to remove the cups and wash only one or two instead the entire bunch!

- Camisoles & Spaghetti Strap tops
- Bathing Suit Tops
- Tank Tops
- Workout & Racerback Shirts
- Pots & Pans
- Scrapbooking/Craft Items
- Fly swatters/Hand Towels, etc in the Utiility Room

**Update** Several of our members have mentioned that they're concerned that the rings would all slide to one side or the other on the hanger, leaving an uneven "mess", so to speak. To prevent this issue entirely, take a hot glue gun or a caulking gun and add small "beads" of glue(or clear silicone caulking) every inch or so on the hanger. This will prevent the items from sliding or shifting.
