I thought about safety pins, but I really didn't want to use them on our towels. I could just imagine the kids yanking on them and tearing holes in their sides. But what to do?
Here's what I came up with:
Binder clips! They're safe for the kids and won't ruin the towels. So, I headed to the store and found these in the office supply section. I was very excited they had something that matched our bath decor. I wasn't really expecting that to happen. I just wanted the dang towels off the floor.
I went home and snapped these onto the side of the towel, making sure both sides of the towel were sandwiched together, and voila! A towel on the towel rack, that did not move from the towel rack from that point on. Until I had to wash it. Which is exactly as it should be.
And that's the story of how the towel got off the floor.
