Prepper Uses for Wire Coat Hangers

I came across this meme and it made me think what other things can you do with these wonderful wire hangers.

In my life  I can remember using them for

  • To hold my first cars muffler up
  • Unlock that car door after locking the keys in it
  • I still use it to clean clogged drains
  • TP hanger in my privy tent for camping. 
  • Bubble wand (still do because I love bubbles)


But what other things can you do with them...

  1. J.S. Hanger Coat Hangers from Bizarkdeal

    Are you hanging your expensive coats on freebie wire hangers that you get from the dry cleaner? Or are you trying to upgrade with the nicest thing they sell at Target? If you want top quality hangers for your top quality clothing, these are an excellent option. They are honestly the best in my closet, and they do a great job of holding heavier items such as my long wool winter coat and thick down jacket.
    The hangers themselves are beautifully finished beechwood hangars. The arms of the hanger are rounded over the top, and the finish is completely smooth. Some lower quality wood hangars have rough spots or even exposed joints, but this hangar is smooth and finished well all around to avoid snagging on your nice clothes. The metal hanger on top swivels easily as well.
    These are top quality hangers and certainly recommended.
