A little hanky tanky

| October 30, 2008

“Hang 12” is the motto behind the new Hanky Tanky clothes hanger, a 12-garment hanger aimed in part at long-haul truckers looking to maximize cab storage space — and keep the jeans wrinkle-free. As for the name, it springs from the hanger’s origins in the mind of one Chrissie (pictured, with hanger, and truck) wanting a place to neatly hang tank tops. But we think it begs for a particular spokesman. Think “Achy Breaky Heart,” and then substitute “Hanky Tanky Hanger” into the infectious little jingle that will surely pop into your head.

    Well it’s a good idea especially for those of us that have to have clothes for every season in the truck. I’m not sure about it keeping the jeans wrinkle free simply because of so many clothes hanging so tightly together. It’s a great idea for hanging up delicate clothes that you want to air dry
