Another favourite device

This is another of my favourite gadgets. So simple, but saves a lot of time –it’s a handy little device for hanging up lots of small items. I have two and use them to hang small items of laundry outside. Although it doesn’t save time at first as I still have to peg each item one at a time, if it starts to rain I only have to run out and snatch the whole thing rather than having to unpeg every single sock and then peg them all up again inside. What a simple idea! All rights reserved. © Text and image copyright Fleur 2017.

Mom has also two, she now has a hard time lifting her arms, so she peg each item and she only need to lift her arms one time.

I hadn't thought of that advantage as well!

That is a very handy device. I don't have an outside line anymore so I don't use it but when I did I can see how useful this would be.

Certainly for children's clothes it is very handy, they have so many small things!

@Fleura A great invention! (Did the Chinese invent it you think? They all seem to come from China!) When I first saw my sister used it in the early 90s, I was so impressed.

@YrNemo I don't know if they invented but you can bet they make them! That's why they're so cheap!

I believe we have such devices somewhere on the premises. I would check with the staff but Mrs WorDazza has gone to bed!!!

I want to be environmentally-friendly and dry my washing in the fresh air (also free of course!) but when I have to spend ages pegging out dozens of pants and socks only to have to run outside half an hour later when it rains to unpeg them all and then peg them all up again inside - it does kind of disrupt your working day!

@Fleura We're not keen on using a tumble dryer either. Although, due to the wonderful UK weather, particularly at this time of year, the spare bedroom usually ends up looking like a laundry.

@WorDazza If we get that cold weather they are forecasting we'll be able to freeze-dry everything!

They come from one of those cheap homeware type shops, they are handy for pants and socks.

It means I can hang up 40 items and if it rains I just have to unhook two hooks and then hang them up again inside.

I suppose it's a good idea. It looks comfortable to dry clothes like this.

This is a good idea. I don't have one but I can see how it would be great if it started to rain.
