Playing cards come in handy for more than a good game of poker. Use them to keep the waistband of your pants or skirts safe from crimps and shine caused by clothes hangers.
All kinds of hangers–wood, plastic, metal–leave a mark where the clip meets your clothing. Dry cleaners often add a bit of tissue paper to protect your clothes, but tissue paper by its very nature is fragile and rips easily. At home, one deck of cards can last for ages in your closet. Keep the cards clipped to the hangers so you’ll have them handy.
If you have extra cards, you can always use them for arts and crafts.
