What is the best folding clothesline?

Yes! People actually ask what is the best folding clothesline?

There is a good chance you will be using your folding clothesline at least twice a week.

So you need to know what’s best.

When choosing a folding clothesline of course the best advice Mrs. Pegg’s can give is to buy one of our Handy Lines. But seriously we recommend you do your research. Some folding clotheslines are better than others and of course we believe ours is the best. Check out our Facebook reviews!

Practically anyone in most any situation can use a folding clothesline to naturally dry their clothes. The best clothesline is one that works for you and your situation. Whether it’s used inside your home, conveniently using your home’s heat and naturally dehumidifying your home at the same time, or basking in the power of the Aussie sun and wind outside your home, they both offer immense benefits.

The first thing you should contemplate is; is the folding clothesline built for the harsh conditions we experience in Australia? Our Handy Line is constructed from powder coated aluminium with stainless steel fixings, so not only will it withstand Australian conditions it will last for years.

Clothes tend to dry faster on a clothesline outside on sunny days with a nice breeze than they would in an energy draining clothes dryer. Quite often, the load on the folding clothesline will dry before the next wash load is ready for hanging, but the time it will take your clothes to dry will depend upon several factors including weather. A Mrs. Pegg’s Deluxe 10 Handy Line has 16m of drying space and can hold up to two full wash loads.

The following factors should be considered when choosing a folding clothesline;

One of the first things to consider is where you are going to use your clothesline the most and where you can derive the most benefit. Folding clotheslines are used all year round in Australia in all types of weather conditions including cold weather. Keep in mind, that if you’re going to dry your clothes in harsh weather, you’ll want to be using a Mrs. Pegg’s Handy line which is an extremely strong and durable folding clothesline

Did you know a  folding clothesline can also dry clothes in freezing temperatures through the process of sublimation where the water evaporates directly from the frozen state without passing through a liquid phase but of course not the most desired of drying conditions. Just a silly science fact!

We recommend placing your folding clothesline in an open area away outside from trees, where possible. This will help maximize your drying since the sun will shine directly on your clothesline and the wind will be unobstructed.

Next, you’ll want to decide how much drying space you need on your folding clothesline which will depend on how much laundry you plan on hanging to dry at once. Also, you’ll want to take into account the width, length, and weight of the items you plan to hang dry especially if you plan on drying heavy larger items such as sheets. This will help ensure the folding clotheslines dimensions and weight capacity meet your drying needs.

Mrs. Pegg’s Handy line has 5 different clotheslines to choose from. The drying space on the all new Easy 8 is 12 metres and the Classic and Deluxe 10 folding clothesline both have 16m of drying space.

This will also help gauge how many pegs you’ll need to buy. Did you know Mrs. Pegg’s has also invented a Handy Peg? Mrs Pegg’s Handy Peg is a specially designed easy soft grip peg for people with arthritic finger joints or have finger mobility issues. Simply poise the peg over the line, slight squeeze and the peg goes over the item and onto the line with ease. The Handy Peg is a strong high quality UV treated all-weather peg.

The Mrs Pegg’s Handy Lines are available in two models. The Deluxe and the Classic – plus the all new Easy 8 and all folding clotheslines come with a two-year warranty.
