Do you ever use hangers like that with wire/metal on top? I snagged a box of nice wooden hangers and found 5-6 of these in there. A little worried about some sort of metal flake / contamination on the coats. Also had a few short hangers with what looks like a small toilet paper roll on the end.. Do folks use these for ties?
Yes, I use them. I've never seen rust or corrosion on those hangers, and wouldn't worry that they'd damage the clothes.
I've never seen a toilet roll hanger before. Ties seems a pretty good guess, if I found one I'd use it for that.
