  • Bag-Drying Clips

They're too flimsy to stay open by themselves, and if they get bumped shut they tend to stay shut.

    Then I screwed through it into the shelf above, making sure to use a screw short enough that it wouldn't poke through:

    Once it was snug, I slid the other half of the clothespin back on:

    Here are some bags drying:
