    The Right Way To Hang Clothes on a Clothesline

    There are many benefits to hanging your clothes on outdoor clotheslines. It’s not only eco-friendly, but it saves you some electricity bills since you’ll only be using the natural outdoor heat and breeze to dry your clothes. But, since you won’t be putting them in the dryer at one go anymore, you’ll have to spend time hanging each of the items to the line. If you are a first time washing line user and you would like to do it right, check out our guide below.

    Shirts or Tops When hanging tops, you need to make sure that the shoulders will not get stretched or wrinkled. So, the general way to hang tops is by pegging them using the bottom hem at the side seams. You can also hang them using a wooden coat hanger which you can then peg on your outdoor clotheslines. Check out Coastal Clotheslines perfect brackets for using coat hangers.

    Pants Before hanging pants, we first recommend that you find a space on the washing line that is in the sun then becomes shady. This is because pants are prone to getting stiff when dried in direct sun on washing lines. Match the inner leg seams together, then peg their hems to the line. The result has the legs up, and the waist hanging down. For faster drying time, you can also peg one leg to an adjacent line. But, this is only recommended if you have enough space for all the items in your wash cycle.

    Socks If losing socks in the dryer has always been a problem, you can definitely avoid that now when using outdoor clotheslines. Just remember to put the socks together in pairs before pegging them to the clothes line. Then, simply attach one corner of the pair to the line and let them dangle open for faster drying.

    Towels and pillowcases Just like with pants, towels tend to become stiff when you dry them in direct sun using washing lines. So, we also recommend drying towels in part sun and part shade. You can simply hang them by their corners for fast drying and bring them inside when dried to prevent stiffness. It’s also great to use enough clothespegs for these items as needed to prevent sagging.

    On the other hand, for lighter items such as pillowcases, you can peg them to the outdoor clotheslines in pairs to save space. This also works for other lightweight items.

    Blankets and Sheets Blankets and sheets are not only big but also heavy items. Moreover, you might have already seen how they are hung on clotheslines in movies before. Hanging these items are not overly complicated, except for their weight. Simply fold the sheet or blanket in half, then clip their open-end corners to the outdoor clotheslines. This way, it will not leave a crease in the middle of the item. However, if it sags, you can add one or two extra clothespegs in the middle. You can also do this to keep the items extra secure during windy weather.

    Items Not To Line Dry

    Now that you have an idea of how to line dry common clothing items and garments, here are some items that you should avoid drying using outdoor clotheslines.

    Stretchy Clothes This includes sweaters and other unstructured knit garments. Here, it’s important to always check the manufacturer’s care label if it’s okay to line dry the items.

    Delicate Fabrics These are items that may just fly away with the wind, especially on windy days. Some examples are lace and other slippery fabrics that will not stay pegged on the line.

    Vintage Fabrics Finally, we have clothes that are recycled, repurposed and delicate with age and already have some damage on them. Line drying is usually not recommended for these clothes since the weight of their wet fabric may cause more damage to these precious clothing items.

    Choosing The Right Clothesline Cord For Your Home

    Clotheslines are useful accessories, especially for homemakers, and they have to be chosen with care. After all, they are responsible for your clothes for a few hours or so. For this, you’ll need to find the right clothesline cord that will not accumulate dirt, dust or grime, and will not rust. For instance, if you’re thinking of getting stainless steel clotheslines, it’s best to make sure they’re made of the best quality and will leave your clothes free from stains or discolouration.

    So, how exactly do you choose the right clothesline cord? Check out some factors we listed below to help you find good quality clothesline cords that will outlive cheap ones by many years.

    STRENGTH First and foremost, the cord must be strong enough to support one to two loads of wash. Now, there are plenty of other sub-factors that will determine the strength of clothesline cords, including length. But, generally, clothesline cords should be able to accommodate from 8 to 16 kilograms of weight. Cords that do not have this type of support must be avoided. After all, it’s not only clothes that you’ll be putting on the cord, but bedsheets and other heavier materials too. Choosing a cheap cord that snaps when put under pressure of a heavy material will simply result in another round of heavy washing to get rid of the dirt.

    LENGTH In general, you should consider getting 22 to 30 metres of clothesline cords. But, if you’ll only be using it for smaller loads, you can also opt for less than 12 metre of cord. The more clothes you’ll need to dry, though, the longer the length of the cord. In fact, you can even go up to 60 metres to accommodate up to 3 loads of wash cycle. An extended clothesline is always better than a short clothesline.

    However, it’s always best to have a correct estimate of the length of your clothesline cord. After all, part of the reason that clotheslines sag is because of their length. On average, 10 metre of line is ideal for one load of wash. An extended line is indeed advantageous, but if you only need a small part of it over time, it will sag. For this, you’ll have to find the correct combination of length and material if you want a clothesline that will last and is exactly what you need.

    MATERIAL Clothesline cords are made of different materials by different brands. First, we have plastic which is only recommended for small loads. Next, is cotton, also known as one of the best materials for clotheslines. It is moisture-resistant and has solid construction. However, it may need to be tightened from time to time since it will stretch over time. Lastly, we also have stainless steel clotheslines. If you want sturdy clothesline cords that will last for years, then stainless steel is your choice. It’s a heavy-duty material that makes sure your clothes will not fade on its lines. Since it’s heavy-duty, it can accommodate clothes during a big wash, such as an entire week of clothes — in one go!

    Some of the clothesline cords that you should avoid are those that sag when clothes are hanging. Instead, they must remain taut and straight. Moreover, avoid cord materials that are known to give in and snap if there’s a sudden increase in weight.

    An evening with my cat

    In case you’re wondering what kind of night I am having, I just watched my cat clothesline herself – MORE THAN ONCE – on my computer cable. Now I can’t write my speech because Spike is watching me like she’s waiting to tell me off if I laugh. Definitely not laughing here
