Dry-or-Wet Hanger / Hanger

Dry-or-Wet Hanger
Dry-or-Wet Hanger

To find out whether the clothes hanging on the clothesline is dry or not bothers many people, especially housewives owning narrow balconies. They have to take off the clothes and check them one by one. Unfortunately, our fingers will become insensitive to humidity after touching wet clothes. The Dry-or-Wet hanger shows users the humidity of clothes in an intuitive way: when the wet clothes turn dry, it’ll change from blue to red. The Dry-or-Wet hanger makes people’s life more convenient, in the hope of bringing people a better mood to enjoy life.
