It happens to the best of us: You bought way too many new clothes and have no hangers to put them on, so you buy a new pack. Somehow, over time, you just keep accumulating more and more of them, until you inevitably have a few loose hangers always lying around or hidden between clothes on the rack. And, when they aren’t actually doing their job hanging your clothes, hangers are nearly impossible to keep organized. They’ll tangle and turn into a big mess — or, even if they stay on the rod, they’ll take up too much valuable space in your closet.

Now, you might have your closet and hangers organized pristinely, unlike me, — if so, I applaud and envy you — but still, you likely have nowhere to put hangers when you need them in the laundry room. Whether the former or latter has happened to you, you don’t have to worry about all those extra hangers having nowhere to go with this amazing Hanger Organizer from Amazon. This nifty item allows you to declutter your space and have all the hangers you need on hand so that you can get your clothes instantly organized, right there by the washer and dryer.

With a strong magnetic backing that can hold up to 20 pounds, the organizer can withstand a number of hangers with no risk of it falling off or sliding down whichever metal surface you place it on — the side of the washing machine or a fridge, for example. It’s durable because it’s made of thick carbon steel that’s both waterproof and rust-proof. It’s still lightweight and slim, so it doesn’t look too bulky even when you aren’t using it.

I’m sure many of us have accumulated a wide variety of hangers over the years (from wooden to plastic to velvet to the wire ones you get at the dry cleaner’s), so you’ll be happy to know that this handy organizer can fit any kind of hanger on it. According to reviewers, who’ve granted the product a 4.5-star average, it can fit around 10 or so on each end.

The best part of all — aside from giving a home to your random discarded hangers — is that they are easy to reach when you’re taking laundry out of the washer or dryer. For the clothes you want to air dry on a drying rack, you don’t have to walk all the way to the closet to grab some hangers. (I’ve found that by putting wet clothes directly onto the hanger out of the washing machine and hooking them onto the rack, they dry with no creases — which often means they need no ironing or steaming later on.) On the other hand, if the clothes are coming straight out of the dryer, the organizer will let you put them on the hanger immediately, so that you can put them away easily and quickly. 

Plus, you have the option of draping other miscellaneous items off of the organizer as well — all you need are some S-hooks. Just turn the organizer on its side and voilà: a place to put your keys, for instance, or maybe some grocery bags. Any way you decide to use it, this $17 tool will help you make better use of your laundry room, and who wouldn’t want that?
