It never fails to put a smile on our faces whenever we receive requests for clothesline recommendations that are location-specific, it means that people are very enthusiastic about our products and are serious about drying clothes the eco-friendly way!
So here we are! We made a list of the top clothesline recommendations for the Inner Suburbs in Melbourne in order to aid you in finding the perfect airer for your very own home.
We will not only provide you with our top three picks per category of airers we have available via our online portal but we will also help you figure out exactly which form factor is best for your own usage scenario.
The first step to take in order to narrow down our choices and keep confusion at bay is to determine how much drying line space you need.
While most manufacturers and online stores recommend at least 10 metres of length per person in a given household, we advise oversizing it a little bit by 1 to 2 more metres in order to have a buffer, just to be on the safe side in the event that you need some extra drying line space.
There are hundreds upon thousands of clotheslines out on the market right now but all of them fall into these six main categories:
Folding and retractable clotheslines are offered in various capacities, the latter is housed in a very discreet and compact cabinet where the cords are reeled in when not in use.
Some manufacturers of foldable clotheslines allow virtually unlimited customisation options on their products which is a boon to those who are very particular with the aesthetics of their airer.
Standard and folding rotary hoists boast some of the biggest capacities at a given amount of space unlike other designs, that's because the drying lines are arrange in such a dense manner yet the lifting and rotating top assembly facilitates drying so performance wise they are some of the best.
Portable and ceiling mounted clotheslines are the best options for those who have compact living spaces, be it a studio, cottage, or a cozy apartment within the Inner Suburbs of Melbourne.
Truth Be Told
Since we have given you a basic idea as to which form factor to decide on, we will briefly dig a bit deeper so you will know what you're getting yourself into, not that clothesline purchases are such big deals but these things last for a while so the decision-buying process should be as thorough as possible to keep frustrations from occurring.
Don't settle with a clothesline that is not powder-coated or at least anodized (in the case of aluminium ones), most of the time, the type of finish your clothesline has is what dictates the longevity of the frame itself so you have to take a closer look before you hit that 'buy' button.
You can always opt for the best which is stainless steel but aluminium and galvanised steel are good options if you are on a tight budget.
The other two are very durable still but the former is not as hard as steel and the latter is not as strong as stainless steel and aluminium when it comes to corrosion resistance but it is the most affordable of the bunch.
Lastly, read about reviews and testimonials from websites that have verified reviews and from companies that actually stand by their products and are willing to go the extra mile just to satisfy its customers.
There is a good reason why a company like Apple can survive the ups and downs of global economies, this company has such a loyal user base (despite the hiccups or shortcomings stemming from their products), their customers choose to stay due to the impeccable after-sales service and overall customer experience.
Customer service makes a big difference mostly when it comes to the longterm aspect of purchasing any product so buying a clothesline is no different, get a clothesline from reputable brands like Eco, Austral, Daytek, Sunbreeze, Hills, or Versaline.
