I'll go through the closets, remove all the unused wire hangers and
take them to the laundry. I carefully hang them on a gas pipe. So,
when I remove the clothes from the dryer, or from the washer to hang
dry, I just reach up and grab a hanger.
WRONG"" I get two or three hangers not counting the ones that fall to
the floor. They're all "joined", not unlike extension cords, Christmas
lights, or even garden hoses.
Seriously, what's the best way to store wire hangers in a manner that
when you want one, and only one, that's what you get.
