Where to Hang Washcloths?

plastic-suction-hooks.jpgTwo clear, plastic suction hooks are functional and discreet.Suction stuff usually doesn’t work very well for me–bigger items like shelves or soap holders have been known to un-stick from the shower walls and flop down in the middle of the night–SLAM! CLATTER-clatter-clatter!Scares the liver out of me.But these simple, basic hooks have fallen off only a couple of times at the very beginning, back when I didn’t understand the “locking” instructions. The hooks are hinged, and they are supposed to be flipped up when pushing against the tile to make the suction cup stick. Then when it is firmly in contact with the surface, I pop it back down into “lock” position, which tugs the plastic backwards a little bit and makes it tight and strong without pulling it completely off the tile.Then pile on the washcloths. The hooks hold very well.I bought them at Target for very little money–only a couple of bucks. But they solved the problem of where to hang the overflow of washcloths and bath scrunchies for our family of six.That’s it.That’s what works for us in the shower (in addition to capturing long, lost hairs from heading down and clogging the drain).To peruse my odd and assorted WFMW ideas, click here.Or return to today’s Rocks In My Dryer’s master list.

    1. Okay…here’s the real question: when you are a guest in someone’s house, where do you put your washcloth when you are done showering? Leave it in their bathtub/shower? Squirrel back to the guest room and hang it from your doorknob? Throw it in their hamper?! I’m always at such a loss! ;)

    2. Great idea.

      Thanks for sharing.



    3. I use something similar in our shower for the washcloths. I found a pkg of 8(I think that was the number in the pkg) of white suction cup hooks at the Dollar Tree store for $1. Sometimes they fall down but for the most part they are pretty good at holding their suction on the shower wall with the washcloth. :)

    4. Great Idea! This will work wonders in my childrens bathroom :)

    5. This is a good idea for washcloths and hand towels.

      I keep disposible hand towels in the bathroom for guests. This way they can discard them when done. It is also very decorative if you have nice colors.
