Here’s a bunch of my favorite command hook hacks and ideas. It’s amazing how many uses there really are for these things. Click through to see some clever ways you can use these 3m command sticky hooks to make your life easier and help keep you organized.
When I was putting this post together, I was surprised at how many ways we use these around our house. Every time I thought I was done writing, I would think of one more place we have a command hook.
You can buy these command hooks at most places now. I actually get them from Amazon most frequently! My favorite command hook products are the medium utility hooks, the clear decorating clips and the clear oval hooks.
ONE // Hang Keys
We use these command hooks to hang infrequently used keys to the inside of cabinets. Then they’re not getting lost in the bottom of drawers. In addition, every time we open the cabinet – it creates a muscle memory so we know where it is. They are easy to pull out whenever we need them, but they don’t take up any space. PS: Don’t ask me what that weird electrical thingy is in there. LOL.
TWO // Hang and Organize Measuring Spoons
Keeping with the cabinet idea, I use one command hook on the inside of the cabinet where I keep all the measuring cups and spoons. I hang the spoons from the hook and pull off the particular one I need at any given time. It’s a great way to use up every inch of space in your cabinet and I love hanging them from a hook!
THREE // Hang Scented Sachets in Linen Cabinets and Closets
I am a huge fan of rice sachets scented with essential oils. In fact – I just made a bunch of fresh ones! I love to hang these guys inside closets and on the inside of my linen cabinet door using command hooks. Every time I open the cabinet, I get a fresh scent and it keeps everything smelling great in there. Make sure the sachets are tied up nice and tight – you don’t want rice everywhere!
FOUR // Hang Laundry Tools
I use a flexible dryer vent brush to clean the bottom of the vent tray out as needed. When I’m done using it, I hang it back up on a command hook right next to the dryer. It never gets in the way and it’s right there when I need it.
FIVE // Bath Toy Organizer
I even use command hooks as part of my diy bath toy organizer. Unfortunately, a lot of the bath toy organizers on the market just don’t work for us. So instead, I use an old beach bucket with small holes drilled in the bottom to hold all the bath toys. Then the water drains right out after a bath and nothing gets mildew or moldy. I hang the bucket right from a command hook I stuck to the tub wall. Those toys stays hidden behind a shower curtain and when I need to clean – I just pick it up and set it aside. My kids have joined the fun. After bath – we all try to find the “hidden” bath toys under the soap suds and put them away in the bucket. Cheap thrills! 🙂
SIX // Use them to Hang School Calendars
If you have kids in school, you will be amazed at the amount of calendars they send home. I mean, really!? A homework calendar, an all school calendar, a calendar featuring your kids artwork. Since I kinda need and want them all, I use command hooks to hang them in important spots around the house. Basically – where ever we want and need them! My daughter has her calendar hung up in her room this way on the side of her dresser. She loves to keep track of the dates!
SEVEN // Hide Unsightly Cords
We’ve all been here. You have a cord hanging down from a lamp or something creating an unsightly eye sore. Just use a command decorating clip to corral those cords outta sight! I use a few and stick them to the back of the table legs. I push the cord into them and it stays hidden behind the table legs. The nice thing is – they can be removed without damaging your furniture. So it can really be a temporary or a permanent solution for you.
EIGHT // Hang Rubber Gloves
As you can tell, I am huge fan of using the inside of doors and cabinets to “store” things. I am just not really a fan of drilling any permanent holes in these places. So – these command hooks solve that problem. In the kitchen, I use a small binder clip to hold my rubber cleaning gloves together. Then I just attach the clip to the command hook. Easy Peasy!
NINE // Hold Washi Tapes and Ribbons
I use a wooden dowel to hold all my washi tapes. I just hang the dowel from two command hooks that I attached to the inside of cabinet where I keep all my crafts. When I need the tape, you just remove the dowel and pull off the one you need. It’s great not having to store all these washi tapes in a box somewhere – they can take up a lot of space after a while. You want to make sure you use hooks big enough to support the weight and with enough of a “hook” to hold the dowel. Does that make sense?
TEN // Hang Outdoor Wreaths
I used to use those clunky wreath hangers that go over the top of the door. Then I tried the clear clunky wreath hangers. Then I got smart and used a couple sturdy clear command hooks to hang the wreath! Now I can hang a wreath or swag below the top windows on my front door, which I sometimes like to do because it still lets light in.
Tip :To make it easier to hang – I attach a bit of floral wire to my wreath and use the wire to hang on the command hook.
I hope these command hook hacks give you some ideas. Please share this if you find it useful!
