According to Energy Star Ratings, electric “clothes dryers use more energy than any other household appliance, contributing to higher energy bills and unwanted carbon pollution.” The cost to purchase a new electric dryer is much more expensive compared to a portable clothesline.

Save Energy

Portable clotheslines are one of the easiest ways to save energy since you can eliminate 100% of the cost by hanging your laundry to dry. Electric dryers are energy consuming thieves that require an average of 5 Kilowatt-hours per load of laundry. Compared to washing machines a clothes dryer consumes ten times more electricity per year.

Save Your Environment

During a hot Aussie summer, it’s not a good time to waste energy heating your home by using an electric dryer, nor is it time to add to the grid straining under the use of air conditioners.

Considering most of our electricity comes from fossil fuels it’s refreshing to know that there’s a solution to naturally dry laundry using the power of the wind and the sun that consumes no natural resources. Also, electric dryers are a very serious fire hazard, especially during peak times and in areas prone to fires. Electric dryers can burn your home to the ground.

CO2 released to dry one load of laundry:

Laundry Dryer: 2 kg
Clothesline: 0 kg

Take into account that the typical Aussie home demands about 300 loads of laundry every year you’ll quickly find that electric dryers alone are responsible for 800 kilograms of carbon dioxide every year.

If you believe in Climate Change or not – do you really want to be emitting 800 kilos of extra Carbon Dioxide?

Portable clotheslines work with nature to produce zero carbon emissions. The question is, how much damage to mother nature are we willing to cause in order to use an electric dryer?

Save Yourself

Think portable clotheslines are a thing of the past? While clotheslines have been used for centuries to dry laundry, they still remain the most popular way to dry laundry on the planet.

Portable clotheslines are used everywhere by people from all walks of life.

Problems arising from the implementation of an electric dryer are more numerous than its benefits. Dryer lint and chemicals from dryer sheets, clothing dyes, and detergents also decrease indoor-air quality creating an unhealthy environment in your home.

Electric dryers charge your laundry with static electricity by rubbing laundry together repeatedly. Plus, RF Frequencies from electrical appliances interfere with your bodies’ own natural electrical frequencies so any reduction in exposure is extremely beneficial.

Lots of Aussies have found hanging their laundry to dry in the sunny breeze is therapeutic and a great way to clear your mind and gain focus.

Save Your Laundry

Electric dryers are constantly destroying the fabric and colour of your clothes, sheets and towels.

Where do you think dryer lint comes from? Did you ever wonder why your clothing doesn’t last as long as it used to? Increase the life of your fabrics with a Mrs Pegg’s portable clothesline and keep your laundry colours vibrant.

Air-drying can reduce wrinkles. Laundry which have been properly hung on our portable clothesline will dry in the right shape, virtually wrinkle-free, and will be waiting when you’re ready to get them. Little ironing needed if hung correctly.

Electric dryers toss laundry around, causing wear on the seams and sometimes snagging things with zippers. Beating them on a rock is gentle compared to what those fibres go through in the laundry dryer while they are heated, slammed and scrubbed against other laundry continually for a up to an hour at a time. Those fibres get broken, pulled, torn, and worn ruining the quality fabric of your clothing. Have you ever had a shirt or pair of pants ruined by pilling? That’s what a dryer does.

Sunshine helps to remove stains from white laundry and the ultraviolet rays destroy viruses, bacteria, fungi and dust mites. That’s Right! The sun is a natural whitener, so no need to buy any bleach. The heat from an electric dryer is enough to set a stain, but it’s not enough to kill much bacteria or other unwanted growth.
