    99 percent of what cleaners produce and send out goes out on a hanger, But now the hanger could become a burden for dry cleaners.

    The U.S. has imposed a tariff on wire hangers — which are all imported from China –because China has been selling them far below market value.

    It has increased the supply costs by anywhere from 90 to 140 percent.

    One way consumers could save money when going to a dry cleaner is to bring in used hangers to be reused. [AP]

    Lets see… Jewish History is around 5700 years, Chinese History is around 4700 years. That means Jews have been doing their own laundry for 1000 years!

    The reason behind the tariff is to make it worthwhile for the cleaners to buy American hangers.
