Ah, the humble clothespin.
I actually don’t use them to hang laundry on the line. But around my home the clothespin has some creative uses that save me money and sanity.
The Clothespin Babyproof Blinds Hack
The “Whose Glass Is This, Is It Clean or Dirty, Do I Put It In The Dishwasher or Let It Sit Here On The Counter/Table?” Hack
Those of you with several kids know this one. By 10 am, there are eleventythousand cups around the house and nobody seems to know who they belong to, causing you to run the dishwasher 7 times a day, all glasses. Because they have to get a NEW glass for each SIP of liquidy beverage.
Or, you can Sharpie a clothespin with everyone’s name on it. They clip it to their glass, identifying it to you and everyone else.
I recommend removing the clothespin before taking a sip. Noone likes having a rafter in their eye.
The “Keep The Hand Towel On The Towel Bar” Hack
Everyone knows that husbands and children are incapable of noticing when the hand towel drops to the floor after they dry their hands.
The clothespin keeps it where it’s supposed to be and momma is happy.
