I, for one, am super grateful for Command Hooks, because of the simple reason that I no longer have to put holes in my walls in order to hang things around my house. How about the rest of you? Can you relate to this struggle? These days, Command Hooks even come in a variety of shapes, sizes, durability, and uses, so you can use them for pretty much anything! Well, maybe not anything, but you know what I mean… the range of options is seriously vast! Here is a list of some of the most unique ways to use those handy-dandy hooks that you probably haven’t even thought of up until now. Take a look!

 Shop Command Hooks in bulk for less with Walmart, Target, Amazon and ebay deals and coupon codes! 

 

  1. Store toothbrushes.

    Have you ever noticed all of the “gunk” that collects at the bottom of your countertop toothbrush holder? If you haven’t, you certainly will now that I said something. It’s just plain old gross. To prevent this from happening, ditch the countertop toothbrush holder all together! Instead, simply mount one of the small clear Command Hooks sideways on your bathroom wall to hang your toothbrush. If you prefer your toothbrush to be out of sight, the inside of a cabinet works just as well!
     
  2. Hide electrical wires.

    Everybody hates those annoying and unsightly wires all over their desk or entertainment center, and trying to tuck them away only helps so much. Well, believe it or not, the small Command Hooks work wonders for keeping wires out of the way and out of sight! Just place a small hook on the back or side of your desk, entertainment center, or wherever your wires are, run your wires through the unseen hook, and BOOM - problem solved! No more pesky wires in sight or in your way!
     
  3. Hang container scoops.

    Have you ever gone to scoop some sugar out of the canister for some homemade sugar cookies, but can’t find any of your measuring cups or spoons? Or maybe you’ve gone to make your daily pot of morning coffee and can’t find the coffee grind scooper? I promise you’re not the only one! To make life a heck of alot easier and to solve this first-world problem, attach Command Hooks to the outside of all of your containers - coffee, sugar, flour, oats, etc. - and hang a scoop or some measuring cups or spoons on each one so that you never misplace them again! You can also do the same to organize pots, pans and other utentils by attaching the hooks to the back of your cabinet doors.

  4. Mount your WiFi router.

    Using Command Hooks to mount your WiFi router is a clever idea for two reasons! First, when you use the metal Command Hooks, there is a small chance that it will improve your WiFi reception. I’m not making any promises here, but in my opinion, it’s totally worth a shot! Second, even if it doesn’t improve your reception, at least you’ll still have much more room on your desk with your router mounted on the wall!
     
  5. Prevent trash bag slips.

    If you’ve got a trash can that doesn’t lock your trash bag into place, don’t worry. Not all hope is lost just yet! If you place a hook (any size) on each side of your trash can and hook your trash bag on the hooks, you can create your own trash can locks. And just like that, no more trash bag slippage. You can finally throw your spaghetti away without spilling it all down the sides of your trash can. What a relief!
     
  6. Store aluminum foil and plastic wrap.

    Mounting a few Command Hooks on the inside of your kitchen cabinet doors or inside your pantry makes for a perfect place to store things like aluminum foil, plastic wrap, and parchment paper. To make things even easier, consider sticking a small rod or dowel through both openings of the roll. This will allow you to still be able to access the product without having to take the whole roll out of the cabinet or pantry!
     
  7. Hang curtains.

    Looking to hang some curtains in your home, but would rather not drill holes into your walls for the curtain rod brackets? The solution is simple. Once again, use Command Hooks. It’s a super fast and easy way to hang a curtain rod without putting any holes in your wall whatsoever. Just remember, if your curtains and/or rod are on the heavier side, you’ll definitely want to get the heavy duty hooks.
     
  8. Organize pots and pans lids.

    I don’t know about you, but I personally can’t stand when my pots and pans cabinet is a mess. You know - when you open the cabinet door, take one look inside, and know that it’s going to be a hassle for you find what you need? Well, that’s where Command Hooks come into play. In order to organize and save space in that chaotic cabinet, simply mount two hooks for each lid on the back of the cabinet door, or even on the inside walls of the cabinet. You’ll want to position the hooks at an angle so that you can just slide the lid right down into them to hold it in place.
     
  9. Hang eyeglasses.

    Tired of putting your glasses on the nightstand before bed and waking up to find that you’ve knocked them onto the floor at some point during the night? Command Hooks are an easy way to solve this problem as well! Just stick two hooks on the side of your nightstand, headboard, or even the wall next to your bed, and tie a small piece of string between the two hooks. Now, instead of throwing your glasses on the nightstand each night and not being able to find them in the morning, simply hang them on the string!
