Clothespins have been around for centuries, though we hardly think of them these days with our automatic clothes dryers. These nifty little tools should not be cast aside, however. They are incredibly useful for so many things around the house you’ll wonder why you didn’t keep a bag around all of the time. So come on in and find out about The Best Clothespin Hacks That Will Help You Out.
The Best Clothespin Hacks That Will Help You Out
- Clothespins are handy for holding whatever you need! Glue and/or nail a row of clothespins to a board and hang it up. Or hang pins right on the wall free-form. Decorate them with Washi tape to match your style then hang up scarves, small handbags and purses, and even necklaces and bracelets. See how simple it is to create this beauty over at DIYS!
- It’s easy to turn clothespins into your very own handy fridge magnets. You can easily find magnetic tape to stick on the back or hot glue heavy duty magnets on the back to hold heavier items. Decorate the fronts or label them so you always know what goes where.
- Wrap up your earbuds around a clothespin and use the clip to hold the buds and end in place. No more tangled cords or lost earbuds! Want to make one or two or three or more… hop on over to M. Fun 365.

Car Air Freshener:
- There is no need for expensive and fancy air fresheners in the car when you can make your own. The natural wood of most clothespins can absorb most liquid fragrances with easy, but you can also attach felt or wool balls for an extra splash of color and style. Simply add a few drops of your favorite essential oil or perfume and clip it to your air vent. Plus, it’s reusable! Just add more scent when you need it!
Custom Toothbrush Holders:
- Clothespins can hold a toothbrush handle perfectly. Have each person decorate their own and the clothespin can act as a stand to hold their toothbrush up and out of the way. It’s much more sanitary to keep it off the counter. OR put them on the wall and hang your toothbrush when you’re not using it.
- For some reason, bag clips always seem to go missing. Pick up a pack of clothespins and you’ll never run out. clothespins work great to keep chip bags closed and folded up neatly. You can also keep your bagged pasta from spilling out or anything else that needs to be secured. Organize your whole pantry with these handy tools.

- Like with your closet organizing or fridge magnets, you can sort your mail with separate or mounted clothespins. Simply label each one with “Unopened”, “To File”, “Junk” or “To Be Paid” and more! Keep it near your front door or desk to stay on top of the paper clutter and keep things organized.
Hold Spoons and Stirrers:
- The last thing you want when making dinner is a bigger mess. Keep your utensils off the counter and at the ready simply by clipping a clothespin to the handle. They also serve well to keep your spoons from falling into the pot!
- With computers becoming more and more elaborate at home and in the office and the millions of accessories attached to them, you need some way to organize the cables connecting them all. The great thing about clothespins is you can easily readjust the cables at any time. Attach the clothespins to the wall, desk or table and critical points and clip the cables into place.
- While fall is well on the way, get your garden ready for the next season by planning and organizing. Clothespins make handy garden markers because you can plant them in place, or in pots, then just attach a card with the plant near it. Then if you change the flower, veggie, or herb, you can just update the card instead of changing a full marker. Head on over to Never Thyme for more fabulous Garden Market Ideas.
