Hello and thanks for visiting Best Pegs, your go-to site for the best stainless steel clothes pegs.
I'm Meredith, a mum of three kids under five, living on the sunny Gold Coast in Queensland. I feel happy and lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world but with plenty of salty sea air and hot sunny weather, my pegs were just not coping!
I do a heck of a lot of washing and every time I hung out the clothes I would curse my plastic pegs as they snapped and broke apart in my hands. Wooden pegs were no better, the wood sliding off the spring and breaking apart so all that remained was a spring on the line that would go rusty in no time.
I was annoyed at the inconvenience, but also concerned about the environmental impact of tiny broken pieces of plastic pegs breaking down in the soil, and who knows where the wood comes from that makes the shonky wooden pegs? Is it sustainably sourced? Probably not.
Stainless steel clothes pegs are the way to go. You'll never have to buy pegs again!
Be warned though, not all stainless steels are created equal. Best Pegs are made from top quality 316 marine grade stainless steel, so they will not rust, even in coastal environments and it's fine to leave them on the clothesline in between washes. Cheaper pegs use 201 and 304 stainless steel which is susceptible to corrosion so it's worth paying a little extra for top quality 316 marine grade stainless steel clothes pegs. Check out this blog post explaining the difference between the two.
Best Pegs large size is comparable to standard clothes pegs and they're made from sturdy 2mm wire, yet they're easy to pinch open and close. Plus, they won't heat up in the sun.
