    Mother hates the old hangers. I’ve had to save them from the trash.

    The sink had a terrible clog, so I used a hanging folder wire, by making a hook on one end. The quantity of hair was huge and bingo!: no more clog!

    I used a coat hanger to make a 6″x6″ camg grill. It came out great.

    Old coat hangers? Wire coat hangers are still pretty popular here, but usually coated with a layer of plastic (and some of them have a really slim metal wire inside…).

    At least I don’t trust coat hangers that is completely made of plastic, simply because plastic can fail one day due to extreme heat, which is pretty common here. Wood ones, well, can break easily also.

    But still, pure metal coat hangers are hard to find, and the only ones I’ve seen in my home are said to be hand-made from some leftover thick steel wires (φ4~5 mm if I didn’t remember it wrong). Those just can’t be bent with bare hands, so… Maybe not a good choice for survival situation.
