The NETTA Retractable Reel Washing Line is an inexpensive option offering 30 m of red PVC-coated line. Thanks to its aluminium frame, this line is very lightweight; at just 1.9 kg, it’s easy to hold and support during installation. Although aluminium has the advantage of not rusting, it doesn’t have the strength of steel; therefore, you do need to take care not to overload this line. For example, if you are erecting a 6 foot high fence using 4 inch fence posts, the posts need to be 6 feet above the ground. 6 divided by 3 is 2, therefore the depth of the hole required is 2 feet. Nevertheless, this washing line can still be a useful addition to small gardens, and is a neat laundry solution for balconies and flats as well. Measure Your Space Out! This is the most important step. Measure out the area where you will be placing your washline and make sure that your option will fit around the perimeters of the yard. Also, measure how tall you (or the person who owns the clothesline) is to put the line up to its appropriate height. Experts recommend getting a slightly longer and larger rope so it lasts for a long time and is reusable if parts of the rope become unusable.

Another method that requires a little bit of DIY is to install 1-2 galvanised cleat hooks just below the retractable unit. Heavier items such as duvet covers can be hung over both lines. If it wasn’t for this, the Minky would have received full marks. Available from: These retractable washing lines offer a large amount of hanging space. Whilst some units only have one spool inside, other models can have two. The length of the line will depend on the model, but it’s possible for each spool to hold approximately 15 metres of line. If there are two spools in one washing line unit (a dual retractable washing line), this will give around 30 metres of hanging space. In his inserting a gate, I do not consider it unreasonable to require him to build his own gate-post on his land rather than use my solid upright fence post (particularly given the noise nuisance). Fitted with 26 metres of line, the Denny International is big enough to hold a full load of washing. However, as is often the case with these more budget-friendly options, it’s unlikely to be able to support the weight of a lot of heavy items, like wet towels. The maximum weight capacity is approximately 7 kg, and you should be careful to spread the weight evenly across the whole line.Install cleat hooks underneath the wall unit. Wrapping the washing line around these large, metal cleat hooks, after pulling out the amount that you need, will prevent more line from being pulled out unnecessarily. Given the heavy-duty nature of the washing line, the tensioning handle is made of comparatively insubstantial plastic. Available from: For small gardens, opt for the shortest length of line possible. Shorter retractable lines tend to come in a single, not a double, unit. This means the casing will be smaller overall and generally protrude less from the wall.

Installation is straightforward with the supplied template and fixings. Once it’s up, the washing line feels surprisingly solid. If you have cavity walls, make sure you swap the fixings for hollow wall anchors or plasterboard fixings. The PVC lines retract into the casing after use meaning this washing line is easy to keep clean. The 30 m of drying space is enough for larger loads of washing – including bedding and bath towels. The only downside is that the lines can sag underneath heavier loads, so you’ll need to use a prop to support them. Repeat step 3 and this step and work your way down to the required depth, occasionally stopping to measure your depth with the tape measure.

One of the main advantages of a concertina-style dryer is that it can be used at any extension length; it doesn’t need to be fully pulled out if you’re only drying a couple of clothes. Therefore, it only takes up the necessary space required. Offering excellent value for money, this ASAB Retractable Wall Mounted Washing Line strikes a good balance between size, quality and price. It is approximately 170 cm wide, threaded with 26 m of PVC-coated washing line, and could be fitted into a passageway down the side of the house, or in a narrow lobby area, to really keep it out the way. Technically you can dig a hole with a standard shovel, but the hole will always be as wide as the shovel itself and this may be too wide or too narrow, depending on the shovel.

Unattended holes, especially in the dark, can easily cause broken legs and ankles if anyone falls down them, so keep them covered! In terms of size, look for lines with at least 24 m of line space to provide enough room for drying clothes. If you want to hang up wider items like sheets, choose a line that’s at least 140 x 140 cm . Wall-mounted washing lines can be mounted inside or outside the home and once your washing is dry, the lines on many models can be folded away, freeing up space for more important things.
