Nicely done @Lowlander.  Lo-tech, down and dirty and very effective.

I wanted to share this. My sister moved to Washington state and left a bunch of odds and ends here. So there are a bunch of these enamel coated hanging flower basket hooks that make great jeans hangers. They feel like they could hold a significant amount of weight. Way better than a hanger in my opinion and they are probably inexpensive.

I hand all my jeans in S-hooks... not quite as long as those but the same idea. You can pick them up pretty cheaply from a whole load of stores. And I agree, way better than cost hangers and more economical space-wise.

Iron Heart forum tip/hack:

I am set to default log in for 60 minutes. maybe that's most of us? (it can probably be changed)

Anyhow have you ever had a long post or reply typed up and when you went to click post it said you were a guest because your default log in time ended? It's happened to me too many times and it's frustrating.

What i do is:

1. go back to the last page
2. copy the text you have typed up
3. go to the top of the page and log back in.
4. Get to where you were posting and paste the text before posting the message

Not sure if this will help anyone, but if you are like me where your thoughts can quickly jumble and it's hard to remember your thoughts you had typed, it could save you some frustration of having to retype the entire message.

If you tick the "Always Stay Logged In" box, you stay logged in until you choose to logout...

I keep a spray bottle full of diluted Dr Bronners for spot cleans. Spray til damp, agitate, and rinse. Works really well on dirty cuffs.

Used to swear by Dr. Bronners in the old days. That stuff’s gotten expensive...relative to what I used to pay for it.

I like to use this Evercare fabric shaver on my old UHFs to remove the pills and make them silky smooth. Do this at your own peril and USE THE GUARD or you could put a small hole in your shirt.

I gave the outside and the inside of the sleeves a little off the top 😄
