Step 1: Materials

What you'll need:

  • a coat hanger
  • 1/2" polyethylene pipe insulation. It's found at your local hardware store and usually comes in 6-foot lengths (which will make three bump-free hangers). It comes in pre-split or closed, doesn't matter which one you choose.
  • two zip ties
  • scissors

Step 2: Cut the Pipe Insulation Into 2' Sections, and Split.

If the insulation is not "pre-split" go ahead and split one of the sides.

Step 3: Poke a Hole With the Scissors in the Middle of the Insulation.

Step 4: Feed the Hanger Hook Through the Hole.

Step 5: Place the Remainder of the Tubing Over the Hanger and Place the Zip Ties on the Ends.

Step 6: ​Trim Off the Excess Zip Ties.

You can trim off the excess insulation, or just leave it, depending on the clothes you're using it for.

    Good idea. I have some pipe insulation left over from our bathroom renovation. I am going to have to try this out.
