Mrs. Pegg’s Handy Line

We line-dry much of our clothing and linens to save on energy bills and lower our carbon footprint. Clothing also lasts longer when it’s not routinely beat up in a dryer.

We have a number of portable line dryers inside and out, including the old and trusty freestanding wood fold-up dryers, which are great for hanging many small things but are rather unstable with big items like heavy wet blankets.

Mrs. Pegg’s Handy Line rates as Gimpy Friendly because it’s sturdy, light weight, easy to set up and take down, stable enough to handle wet quilts (and wet dogs blankets) and can be stored behind a door or in a closet.

Patricia Roberts, the patent holder, says she’s still using the original prototype, which is more than 10 years old and left out in the elements year-round.

The Handy Line is significantly pricier than most line dryers but we also think it’s probably a last-a-lifetime purchase.
