Cooktop Cove: Forget hanging pictures. Here are 16 other ways you can use Command hooks
By Lillian Teague
Command hooks and products have revolutionized the way people decorate their homes, apartments and dorm rooms. No longer do they have to worry about damaging the walls. They can quickly and easily move their pictures, add holiday decor and transform their spaces.
But did you know you can do a lot more than just hang pictures? These creative Command hook hacks showcase the true versatility of this wonderful product.
1. Hang a banner
From birthdays to holidays, banners say it is a special occasion. Using tape often means a banner falls halfway through an event, and no one wants to put up nails for the occasional banner. Command hooks to the rescue.
2. Organize the bathroom vanity
Look inside your bathroom vanity and you will find there are many unused spaces. You could hang an organizing basket, but you don't want to damage the wood. Try using Command hooks to hold a basket.
3. Hang oven mitts
Organizing is made easy with Command strips. This adorable kitchen accessory is held in place with these ingenius fasteners. You can place items wherever you need them most -- from tile back splashes to the side of the fridge.
4. Keep a trash bag handy
A Command hook installed on your car dash will hold a trash bag for easy cleanup. The Krazy Coupon Lady suggests this creative use for long car trips. Don't be put off by the white hook -- Command hooks are available in different colors and styles. Pick one to match your vehicle's interior.
5. Organize dry spice packets
Have you been digging through your pantry to find that packet of seasoning? This amazing Command hook hack will put an end to that search. Simply clip packets together with a binder clip and hang from a Command hook.
6. Hang your lids
Pot lids are another kitchen item you may be wondering what to do with. Simply install Command hooks and insert the lid for a secure hold. If you prefer these lids out of sight, place the Command hook on the inside of a cabinet door.
7. Hang curtains without nails
This Command hook solution works well for dorms and apartments. Command hooks easily hold a curtain rod. You can now change the look and design of your room without grabbing a hammer and nails.
8. Organize necklaces
Necklaces are like sparkling works of art. Don't hide them away; instead, display them easily with Command hooks. Now you can easily see which one you want to wear. Try this Command hook hack to keep your jewelry tangle free.
9. Keep a scoop close by
Instead of searching for the right measuring cup every morning, put a small Command hook on the side of your pantry container. This is an easy way to save time in the morning.
10. Create easy food wrap storage
A dowel rod fits perfectly inside a food wrap storage box. Hanging the dowel on Command hooks allows you to keep food wrap nice and neat but still be able to quickly and easily spool some out.
11. Store an appliance cord
Even if an appliance comes with built-in cord storage, it is rarely convenient. Simply attach a Command hook and use a cord wrap to secure the cord to the appliance.
12. Keep produce off the counters
Sticking a Command Hook to a kitchen overhang can be a strategic way to keep produce readily available yet off of the countertop. Hang a fruit basket or bag from the hook for an efficient way to keep produce in the air and fresh for as long as possible. This hack also works with a shower caddy, if you don't have a basket.
13. Keep cushions in place
Chair cushions keep sliding off the chairs? Try using Command Velcro strips to keep them in place.
14. Grow some herbs
Create a beautiful place to grow your favorite herbs using Command hooks. This allows you to keep the herbs off the counter and give them plenty of sun.
