Getting your clothes dry cleaned may soon cost you more. And it's all because of metal hangers!
They're already a big expense for dry cleaning businesses. Now, hangers are expected to cost even more, since the United States is imposing new trade penalties on Vietnam.
The Commerce Department says the Vietnamese government has been unfairly subsidizing wire hanger exports. The US imports more wire hangers from Vietnam than from any other country -- $31 million worth last year.
Many dry cleaners say they will probably have to pass the price increase on to customers.
