Being one of the most populous regions in all of Australia, we are not going to deny that there is a huge market for clotheslines in the city of Sydney so it is incumbent upon us to help people find the right one in hopes of making their laundry errands a little easier.
With that being said, you ended up here because you are looking for the top clothesline recommendations in Sydney NSW, right? Well If that is the case, let us get started!
Consider yourself lucky because despite the major differences in temperatures between season, the overall climate of Sydney stays relatively breezy and sunny which means you can use those factors to your advantage!
We will outline the key characteristics of an airer that we think will bode well with the temperate climate of Sydney in a bit but let us just say right off the bat that you need a spacious airer that can withstand strong winds or the corrosive implications of living by the ocean.
If you live in a townhouse, apartment, or studio, most manufacturers cater to these compact living spaces by releasing products designed to make installation a breeze without sacrificing capacity too much. Ceiling airers, fold-downs, portable clotheslines, even retractables are suitable for these types of home.
For those with spacious yards and typical single detached houses, rotary or folding rotary hoists will serve your needs best with the latter specifically designed to be stowed away to allow usage of the outdoor living space when there is no laundry that need airing.
Choosing the Right Clothesline
Given that Sydney is very humid and situated right by the ocean, it is a no-brainer that you should opt for a clothesline that can survive prolonged exposure to water or even the highly corrosive coastal breeze.
The great thing about this region just like we have mentioned above is it is very sunny which is a really big factor when hang drying your clothes, we have created a list of priorities in an airer below for your reference.
What to look for in a washing line:
Stainless/ galvanised steel or full aluminium construction.
Wide space between lines
Simple design with minimal components
A design that spans a wide space for faster drying
We have already highlighted the significance of metals that are tough against corrosion however, not all materials are made the same.
Stainless steel is undeniably tougher than aluminium while galvanised steel can be cheaper to acquire than the other two although not as resistant to rusting. It is a tough call but for coastal regions we always recommend going for aluminium or stainless steel if the budget permits.
Another thing to look for is not exactly a feature but can dictate the reliability of your investment, just like cars and other electronics, the less moving parts there is the more reliable your clothesline will be.
Joints, bearings, and plastic parts fail over time mostly if they have been subjected to very harsh weather and neglect so we would normally choose standard hoists over foldable ones but the latter has been proven to withstand the test of time with annual application of grease in the moving parts.
If you have a yard and space is not an issue, a retractable clothesline, wide fold-down or rotary hoist is your best bet for a capacious airer that will make short work of drying your clothes.
Space saving models or versions of the from factors we have mentioned above work just as well but airers with higher density that basically squeezes a ton of capacity in a small footprint is a recipe bound to fail if not done right so our recommendations below have been carefully hand picked to work well in a place like Sydney.
