MUJI’s Aluminum Wall Hanger Will Rock Your World!

When drying clothes indoors, most people hook their hangers onto curtain rails or wall ledges. However, it can be surprisingly difficult to hook them on well enough, making the whole process quite stressful. So, here's a product that will blow that stress away: MUJI's groundbreaking pinch hanger!

MUJI's Aluminum Wall Hanger

MUJI's Aluminum Wall Hanger (1,290 JPY (incl. tax)) has a semicircular shape, with an approximate width of 45cm and length of 23cm. It was made for drying clothes indoors, with a special construction that prevents it from going sideways when hanging it against a wall.

The frame is made out of aluminum so it's surprisingly light, and the clips are made out of incredibly strong polycarbonate. Even if the condition of the clips deteriorate, you can simply purchase a separately sold set of Clips (150 JPY (incl. tax) for 10 pieces).

Staying Straight = Looks Great, Dries Great!

We actually tried hooking this pinch hanger onto a curtain rail. What usually ends up happening with normal pinch hangers is that the hanger will bump into the window and go sideways, causing the clothes to stick to each other. However, MUJI's Aluminum Wall Hanger didn't do that! The whole drying process was so stress-free, we felt like it went faster than usual.

There are 16 clips that aren't all that big, so it's recommended to follow the picture and use this product for drying towels, socks, and other small clothing items. It has a simple design, so it will also blend well into any room's interior design.

On top of all this, even if MUJI's pinch hanger does bump into the window, the side facing the wall has a silicone layer to prevent the wall or window from getting damaged. As expected of MUJI, everything from how the shape of the hanger affects its usefulness to the small details has been well thought out!

Staying Straight = Looks Great, Dries Great!

Other than curtain rails, if you attach items like suction cups with hooks to the wall, you can dry your clothes anywhere in your room! Being able to hang your clothes in your room will surely become useful on rainy days or when you need to dry your unmentionables away from prying eyes!
