I cannot keep orifice hooks! I have bought many and made many and they all disappear. Where do they go? Are they having a party with all of the single socks that my dryer has eaten? I have looped them on my wheel, hung a small bag on my wheel to keep them in, but they just jump up and disappear. Here are the hooks I have right now, plus the one on my Lendrum.
The beaded one I made and it’s out of wire that is too fine and will break soon. The other is a paper clip, which is what I almost always end up using.
I have a few questions for you:
How do you keep from misplacing your hooks?
If you make hooks what gauge wire do you use?
What hooks are your favorite? Show me cool hooks to buy.
