Was going to order so checked the reviews on Amazon, they are terrible, so maybe check these before deciding to order x

Hmm, going by reviews they don't look too good.

I know it is so terribly, terribly sad but it has become a life goal of mine to find again some excellent plastic washing pegs. They used to exist - I remember them - but with UV from the sun they are a distant shattered memory

All the plastic pegs of the modern era are over designed flimsy trash - designed by someone who has never had to hang out washing every day!

Surely someone must still make decent pegs?

Oh HUKD community, help me please in my quest!

I bought my daughter some in April when she moved into her house, from the pound shop. They are still going strong with only one or two broken from trying to peg too thick items. Hope this helps x

What's wrong with the good old fashioned 'Wooden' peg.Got some excellent ones from Tesco a few months ago pack of 36 for about £1.

Wooden are fine if you use a peg bag, but to save time I leave my pegs on the line and wooden ones get soggy in the rain.

The Best pegs i have ever had came free with a vileda washing line from Argos. They are brilliant very strong have had them about 3 years and they are all still in one piece. I have phoned them to see if you can buy them separately unfortunately they said no

I've just come across perhaps the best possible solution - stainless steel pegs. There appear to be a number of different types available - and I haven't decided which I'm going to try but the ones I have found so far look pretty good. All are quite expensive but at the rate I've been going through plastic pegs, if the stainless do last forever, in the long run they will be a big saving - both in terms of money and frustration

Anyway the ones I have found so far:

Why would you want to leave them on the line? It's not even lazier. If you leave them on the line you have to clip them on the line when you put your washing out, and clip them back on to the line again. If you have them in a bag or a box then you only have to clip them on once to hang your washing out. I don't get it
