The Wild, Wide World of Hangers - Part II

I received some responses over my dilemma in the previous post.

What does one really do with all of those accumulated metal hangers??

I did a search and found that LifeHacker offers the following tip MacGyver Tip: Wire Hangers
You can make a nifty sock retriever for behind the sofa.

Bonnie suggests taking the hangers to smaller thrift stores where they bundle them up and sell them.

Harriet keeps them in the toolshed, for assistance with aerosal painting. She gives the rest to car enthusiast relatives for respraying bodywork.

Lucy recommends the local dump, where they recycle them, and Sue puts them in her recycle bin.

Jonathan educated me on the fact that the inventor of the wire hanger was a canadian, who came up with the invention in the 1890s while working at a Detroit wire company. Now I know who to blame for all of this!
