About this deal

Anyway, the test was prompted by me moving home and needing a new setup so I thought I’d hopefully help you benefit from my experience! We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. The retractable clothesline you can see in the following image is about the most common size, so take a look and decide if you’d have that in your house or out in the garden: How long do they last? This will be included within your account minimum payment request every month and cannot be repaid using Take 3.

It attaches to the wall with a hook which means it can simply be clipped to remove it when it’s not needed. There are plenty of retractable washing lines out there and but Vileda and Minky are the most popular brands. Garden Mile Retractable Automatic Clothes Washing Line is remarkably similar in design to my top pick Vileda but only offers a total of 12 Metres in length.

When you’re done using the washing line, it all folds down, concertina style, into its wall-mounted, stainless steel, storage box. Of course, manufacturers and designers have found ways to limit the weaknesses in these materials, and you can get weather resistant plastics, and metals like aluminium that won’t rust and steel with corrosion resistant coating. These parts seem to be thinner than the rest of the shell, and I think too many hard knocks would damage them. We didn’t test it to the maximum 45lbs, but it held up well with a couple of towels, some wet shorts, and a few t-shirts while being hooked up between a couple of trees.

Just like with the Minky washing line, it’s really easy to detach the main housing from the bracket with only a screwdriver, and as we said earlier, this is good for winter storage and preventing frost damage to the plastic. The technical storage or access is strictly necessary for the legitimate purpose of enabling the use of a specific service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, or for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network. Leave them protruding about 5-6mm so that when you lift on your washing line you can tighten them up fully.Plastic housing, on the other hand, won’t rust but it can be affected and degraded by UV and frost, depending on the quality of the materials used. It’s not up to the standard of heavy-duty products like the 35m line from Better and probably won’t last as long, but for what it costs I was not disappointed by the quality of the plastics used in its construction. You would be shocked just how much breeze these retractable washing lines in conjunction with weight can put up with. Once you’ve finished drilling, and definitely before you push in your wall plugs, check that you haven’t slipped with the drill and the holes line up spot on still.

The first question that you need to ask yourself is- where do I intend to use my retractable washing line?So far the thing has help up beautifully, and whilst the fixing kit is exactly the same as the Vansani, I prefer the 4 fixing setup of the Minsky. From the most expensive, to the cheapest now, with our choice for best budget retractable washing line- the Beldray LA026996, which will give you a good bit of change from a tenner, and won’t disappoint you as long as you don’t expect too much from it. I would say both of those feel a little more robust but if you don’t plan to use the full 15m extension (we are using about 10m) but you need a bit more line than the Vileda provides, this is a cracking option and a genuine 10 quid saving on the top models. Now I know we get to set the tension ourselves but I can’t pull it anymore taunt than that and also fully loaded the line does stretch a bit.
