We have been receiving quite a few requests for a post regarding the best clotheslines for Port Stephens, since our customers are our priority, we figured that it is about time to accomplish this very task in order to help you with finding that perfect airer.
Everyone knows that air-drying clothes is the most efficient and wallet-friendly way to end a laundry errand.
It is not the quickest nor is it more convenient than loading your dryer but the pros certainly outweigh the cons so we completely understand that you are taking this route.
There is no need to worry if the your Port Stephens home has limited space, given the broad spectrum of clotheslines out on the market, any type of house can be fitted with the perfect airer.
Be it a small cottage, a condominium unit, a narrow townhouse, etc. you will find the right clothesline to take care of your laundry-drying needs.
Always follow our tip on line capacity, we recommend allocating at least 12 metres of drying line per person in a given household, for those who are going to start a family or expect a member anytime soon, might as well add a few more meters for good measure and future-proofing.
Another thing to take into account is if you are planning on having the clothesline installed indoor or outdoor, airers that fall in the latter category will of course perform significantly better than the other.
If you want the quickest possible way to air dry clothes without using any electricity, opt for an outdoor model, if you would rather have your precious garments dried in a controlled environment then you'll know which to choose.
Key Features You Need
The needs for an airer vary from one household to another, there is no surefire way to guarantee that your neighbour's experience with their Hills Hoist will be the same for you.
With those things in mind, we have listed below what we think are some features of a clothesline that you should take into consideration to keep buyer's remorse at bay.
Features you'll want in a clothes washing line:
Stainless/ galvanised steel or full aluminium construction.
Easy to use line tensioning system
Convenience features ie: Height adjustability, portability, rotating top assembly (if you have mobility issues)
Adequate gap between drying lines
Choosing the right type of material for you airer based on the environment you live in is a good starting point, it can get quite rainy and cold in Port Stephens so you will want to opt for an airer that will not develop rust easily.
While the majority of clothesline manufacturers implement some sort of line tensioning mechanism, not all of them are executed well. A good example of well-designed line tensioner is the EcoDry Portable's.
Nothing beats rotary hoists and portables in terms of convenience, for the former the top assembly turns to make it easy for you to hang clothes and both form factors can be raised or lowered (for portables, not all models) to suit your preference.
Adequate space between each line is another prerequisite, since the ambient temperature in Port Stephens can get pretty chilly in the middle of the year, you want a model that can still allow you to dry clothes and expect a good result.
This is where sunlight and lots of airflow will do you good, our recommendations below have decent line spacing so it should be easy for you to focus on the other features that we have discussed.
