Easy shower caddy holder

I found on Pinterest this wonderful idea of hanging a shower caddy on the opposite side of the shower with a coat hook so it doesn't interfere with the faucet. I thought this was a great idea. Not because we've had problems with the caddies interfering with the faucet, but because I've tried shower caddies multiple times, but the "neck" of our shower head doesn't accommodate shower caddies; it's just too wide.

So, I wanted to give this a try! However, I am power tools illiterate and didn't want to screw anything into my bathroom without my husband's help...and...unfortunately, I am impatient and didn't want to  wait. So, I didn't. I improvised. And, I'm still quite impressed with myself for it.

I used one of those stick-on hooks. We have used them for our RV to hang coats and such, and they can take quite a bit of weight - plus, I did get one that could hold heavier weights - like a seriously weighted down shower caddy. I mean, seriously, who doesn't need a shampoo bottle the size of texas for a family of 3??

Anyway, I hung up the power-tool-free hook and waited the LONG hour (I told you I'm impatient!) that I had to wait before I put any weight on it. Then, I hung my shower caddy, decided what I wanted on it and looked on with pride at the work I had done...beautiful.

(Ok...moment of truth: my shower caddy is actually far fuller than this normally, but I wanted to make it look more aesthetically pleasing for the picture...and I'm not regretting that choice at all. It looks good!)

I've had it hanging now for over a month and it has served me well, never wavering in its ability to hold onto my shower caddy and the items it holds. I am quite pleased.

Side note: did you notice that scrub brush on my shower caddy? That is how I clean my shower - another Pinterest Test that has proven to work! But, that's for a later post...

Editor's note: The exact make of the hook I used was the "iDesign adhesive!" Attached is a picture so  you know what to look for.


  1. What brand of hooks did you use? The ones I have seen don't look like they would hold weight all that well.

    1. The exact one I used was by iDesign - it was called iDesign adhesive! I will do an edit to my blog and post a picture for you. :)

  3. Great idea! Where did you get the iDesign Adhesive hook? Thanks!

  4. I got my iDesign Adhesive hook at Walmart, I believe. :)
