Are metal clothes pegs suitable for windy conditions?
Any of the metal clothes pegs, regardless of the grade of stainless steel you choose, will hold up well in windy environments. Although they are gentle on your clothes they will hold tight to the line.
Do metal pegs get hot to touch?
It’s an obvious question to be concerned about. Nobody wants a peg that’s going to burn their fingertips when removing it from the clothes line! If this is your concern, you can rest easy. EORTH have tested these wire pegs in the tropical FNQ 40+ degree summer, and we can happily report we don’t have any burnt skin on the tips of our fingers! As the peg is only made from a thin single wire loop, rather than a full metal area, the air is able to flow through the wire peg, allowing it to stay cool to the touch.
Will my Stainless Steel Wire Pegs rust?
If you live in close proximity to the ocean, the 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel Pegs may be more preferable, as they are the highest grade stainless steel wire peg available. EORTH have been testing the 304 Stainless Steel Clothes Pegs, two kilometres back from the ocean, and rust is not an issue. Should you encounter any surface rust on your pegs you can soak them in a CLR solution for a few weeks. After this period they will be like new!
How many stainless steel pegs should I buy?
A small bag of stainless steel pegs would be suitable for small loads of laundry. If you do a lot of large loads of laundry then you’ll want at least 40 pegs for your laundry. If you’re unsure then the best option is to purchase one bag of pegs and add additional pegs at a future date.
