Dry cleaners are paying more for wire hangers. Prices spiked 60 percent over the last seven months. And they could go higher because of cost increases for carbon steel wire.

Dry cleaners are expected to pass their additional costs onto customers.

Industry analysts predict dry cleaning prices could go up 2-3 percent to compensate.
