    Whenever you buy a dress, jacket, or whatever, do you keep those little straps on the outfit? or do you cut them off? These are those little straps that go around the hanger to keep the clothes from falling off the hanger.

    OK, that does it. I'm going to cut the little suckers off. Thanks for all your help.

    I keep them and use them, don't like to pick up clothes from the closet floor.

    I often take them out because I don't have one closet in this old house :(

    I have learned to keep them on, because they help keep the garment on the hanger.

    I keep them - and use them to help hang up clothes. They are invaluable to me :)

    I cut them off and use grippers on the hangers.

    I leave them on most of the time. In some cases I wrap them around my bra straps to keep garment shoulders from slipping and straps from peaking.
