#bloodyuseful The Best Clothes Pegs In The World


This is a public service announcement!

In almost 20 years of family washing, there is only one clothes peg that stands the test of time!


It’s the Rainbow Peg from Maid of Shade and it’s fantastic!

All other clothes pegs can hang their heads in shame. They fall apart in fierce sunshine, they lose their springs. They just disintegrate.

But not the Rainbow Peg, it’s super hardy and made from one piece of tough plastic.


The peg on the right is at least five years old, the one on the left is brand new.

I first came across the Rainbow Peg at the Huskisson Village Markets down at Jervis Bay.

Maid of Shade had a stall there and I bought 30 pegs and a peg bag.  I’ve bought some new pegs and bought them for presents for other people from the Maid of Shade website ever since.

They cost only $9.95 + P&P for a packet of 30 pegs – bargain. 


 The only time I have damaged the pegs is when I’ve dropped them onto our tiled floors and wee bits have chipped off them.  Otherwise, there have been no problems at all in the years I’ve used them.


Rainbow Pegs were out of stock for ages, but they are back in stock now and I’m telling you, they are well worth buying.

Now, normally, I’m the LAST person to come to for household tips.  Domestic duties are not my forte – ask my family.

But no-one can get away from the washing, and these pegs, and also the collapsible washing basket that I wrote about here, really are miles better than any others.

Now, back to travel and days out and family food and general nonsense!

Got any washing on the go today?
