Let it all hang out with the convenience of a multi-line retractable clothesline. These handy mountable items are real space savers, so you can turn any indoor or outdoor space into a lightweight laundry. Simply drag and hang to get your clothes, sheets and towels drying under the sun while you put on another load. Best of all, your electricity bills will go down every time your clothesline goes up. Switch off your automatic clothes dryer and enjoy the feeling of 'going green'. The most popular make and model of retractable washing lines is the Hills Cordomatic, but you can also buy other good brands such as Brabantia and Sedy.
How does it work?
Standard items are made from stainless steel and plastic, with vinyl-coated lines and a tightening mechanism to keep lines taut, terrific and tangle-free. Most items are easy to install, rust resistant and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Wall fixings (screws and plugs) should be included for mounting to a brick wall or other surface. Of course when your laundry bagss are empty and you don't have any garments to dry, simply pack your neat and tidy retractable clothesline away.
How long is the line?
It's nice to have a sturdy, well constructed retractable clothesline in good condition, but in the end it's all about hanging clothes. You can find indoor items in many different sizes and lengths, from 3m lines to hang in your bathroom or laundry, right up to 5 or 6-line heavy duty clotheslines providing 50m of drying space for the whole household to use. Get ready to fill up those laundry baskets, your washing will be dry in no time. Keep an eye out for sellers offering fast and free delivery, as well as assembly instructions and all the required fixings.
