Command Hooks in the Shower

We love Command hooks at Crest Avenue and Dewey Street.  What an ingenious idea.  I wish I had come up with it.  We recently removed some older Command hooks from the shower and upgraded with a new design.  I really liked the way it turned out.  Read on.  We have lots of pictures, so let's get started.


So we decided to go with these "frosted" hooks for hanging items in the shower.


And it was time for a new fog-free mirror.  I find shaving in the shower is much easier and less time consuming that shaving over the sink.


The hooks we had in the shower were Command hooks.  These were nice and they served their purpose for many years, but it was time for an upgrade.  This hook was on one end of the shower.


And this hook was on the opposite end.  This was at the foot of the tub.


As we know, with the Command hooks, you simply pull up on the existing hook to reveal the adhesive strip. Then pull down on the strip and that completely releases the adhesive and the whole thing comes off with no fuss.  Love it!


So, here we are with a clean surface at the shower-head end.


And a clean surface at the opposite end.


This was the mirror I had been using for some time.  It served it's purpose well.  It was designed so that you lifted the mirror part off, filled the area behind the mirror with water and then replaced it.  That kept the mirror from fogging.  A good design and a wonderful product.  But the new Command mirror does not require all of that fussing and it stays fog-free.


Per the instructions, we washed the tiles with Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol before applying the new mirror and hooks.  Let it dry completely.


We had dirty tiles and didn't even know it.


And here we are with a lovely new Command mirror and a place to hang the razor.  So nice and clean looking.


Just under the mirror we have a hook for the back brush.


Here you can see that we centered the items on the tile, one about the other.  The hook at the other end is positioned so that it is on the same level as this hook.

I really like how this turned out.  It is a nice upgrade.  Command products are really wonderful.  They are sold in the big box stores - Walmart, Target, Lowe's, Home Depot.  If you get a chance, check them out the next time you are shopping.  I'm certain you will find a use for them.
