How to Dry Gloves or Mittens in the Winter

Written by dad - 2 Comments

Here’s a quick tip for drying out mittens (assuming that your house has ceiling vents)…

Simply grab a magnetic clip from your refrigerator, clip is to the glove/mitten, and then hang it beneath your air vent such that the cuff is in the midst of the air stream. No fuss, no muss, and no extra energy expended. Check out the picture below to see how it works.

Note that some of our clips have weaker magnets so we had to use two to keep one of the gloves up. However, these are my gloves, and are thus much larger/heavier than those of most kids. Try it out, it works great!

  1. Neat. Unfortunately we don’t have those sorts of vents.

    My wooden drying rack died last year (complete collapse-geeze $5 at a yard sale doesn’t buy what it used to), and with two young kiddos (4 &6) we make a lot of wet mittens and boots in the winter. So I just flipped my wooden kitchen stools over and used the legs to hold up the items while they dry.

    It may look a little funny, but it works
