  • It's for clothes that fall off hangers. When you hang up the garment you put the loops around the hook to prevent it from falling off and onto the floor.

  • If you don't have that problem you can cut them off.

  • They are their for hanging the clothes. Generally becasue teh dress or top is A)of a material that snags easily on some hangers or slips easily or B) the cut of the neck/ etc is wide.

    Generally when you hang the clothes you would take the plastic loops and put them over the "crook" of the hanger (the part that hangs on the rod).

  • Yes, they're for hanging. They drive me nuts so I cut them off. I hang all my dresses or silky stuff or stuff with bigger necklines on slim velvet hangers so they won't slip off.
