Save your clothes with our Portable Folding Clothesline.

Stop using the Dryer use our portable folding clothesline instead.

For whatever reason unfortunately some people still end up ruining their clothes, sheets & towels by using electric dryers instead of our portable folding Clothesline.  Dryers are expensive to run and are harmful to your family and our environment. Laundry should always be air-dried with our portable folding clothesline, Australia’s favourite portable clothesline – Mrs. Pegg’s Handyline!

Don’t tumble dry Activewear.

Just like lingerie, most of today’s activewear is made from high-tech, man-made fibres designed to support muscles and wick away moisture during heavy exercise. To help these garments hold their shape and wicking qualities, avoid the electric dryer at all costs and allow them to air-dry on a clothes horse after washing.

Don’t tumble dry Wool Clothes.

Some wool clothing can be tossed in the washer or hand washed easily at home. However, nothing wool should ever be placed in the dryer. Wool is a natural fibre from sheep or goats and the outer layer contains scales that interlock and shrink when subjected to excess moisture and high heat. Once the scales interlock, it can be quite difficult to return the fabric to its original size.

Don’t tumble dry Sweaters/Jumpers.

Jumpers are created from knitted yarns that can lose their shape if washed incorrectly. The final insult can come if they are tossed in a hot dryer. The heat can cause natural and man-made fibres to shrink or stretch and increases pilling. Returning a man-made fibre sweater to its original shape is almost impossible. Hang them on our portable folding clothesline to be safe.

Don’t tumble dry Silk, Lingerie, and Delicate Fabrics.

Delicate fabrics like silk, lace, and sheer net should never go near the dryer. High heat can set in wrinkles that are almost impossible to remove. But the biggest danger is something like a zipper snagging the fabric and leaving a hole or pull. Dry them on our portable folding clothesline.

Don’t tumble dry Leather, Suede, and Faux Leather.

Even if you’ve been caught in a downpour, it’s not a good idea to attempt to dry any type of leather even faux leather, in a clothes dryer. The high heat can cause the fabric to distort or crack. Hang wet leather goods to air-dry on a clothes airer away from direct heat or sunlight.

Don’t tumble dry Oily and Chemically-Stained Fabrics.

You probably won’t be washing a big load of oily, work rags but even a load of laundry that includes oily kitchen towels or clothes splashed with gasoline can cause a problem if you put them in the dryer. The high heat can cause any oils remaining in the fabric to combust and start a fire. Always air dry, on a portable folding clothesline preferably outside.

Don’t tumble dry Bras.

Bras use spandex and elastic to stretch and provide support. Unfortunately, high temperatures break down those materials and will quickly ruin the shape of the bra. Wash them correctly and hang them on our portable folding clothesline to help them maintain the optimum shape

Don’t tumble dry Swimwear.

Swimwear needs to be washed after every wearing to remove body soil, sunscreen oils, sand, salt, or chlorine. But after washing, allow it to air-dry. Dryer heat will cause the fabrics to distort and ruin that summer look! Air them on a portable folding clothesline.

Don’t tumble dry Hosiery.

Whether silk stockings, ballet tights, or wool socks, hosiery should always be air-dried to prevent shrinking, snags, and pilling.

If you have clothes or home accessories with sequins or beading, keep them away from the dryer. If the decorations are glued on, the heat can cause the glue to melt and some beads and sequins will become distorted. beads won’t het lost on our portable folding clothesline
