“ Betterware / Clothes Peg Storage Bag „
Leaving my pegs out on the line constantly for around 18 months left them in a sorry state and most of them ended up snapping and were useless. After that incident I promised myself to take better care of the pegs and bought this peg bag from Betterware.
The peg bag has quite a nice, trendy appearance with different coloured stripes going all of the way down the bag. There was a choice of either this bag or a peg bag with a rose type design, I personally thought the rose style was more aimed at an older audience and preferred the stripes. There is a hole towards to top of the bag to put pegs in and retrieve them again. At the very top of the bag is a thin hook that simply hooks over your washing line to keep it up.
The hole in the top of the peg bag isn't very wide, I can only take one peg out at a time which is quite annoying when I'm hanging up bigger stuff as it just dangles from the washing line until I get another peg out.
My washing line has seen better days and the wires are drooping where I've placed heavy washing on different lines. This means that when the peg bag is hooked onto the washing line it tends to glide down until it reaches the middle of that particular wire, I've managed to get round this by placing a peg either side of where I want it to hang to keep it in one place.
Since using the peg bag, I have noticed my pegs are still in a pristine condition even though I leave the peg bag outside all of the time. When it gets to winter again I'll bring the peg bag in with the pegs inside so the pegs wont have to deal with a weather beating in the colder months.
I purchased this peg bag from my local Betterware agent when it was on sale for just £1.99 instead of £2.99. I don't think this is a bad price for keeping my pegs in a good condition, the only thing I would of liked is a bigger hole so I didn't have to get the pegs out one by one.
I'm a bit of a sucker when magazines come through my door and I tend to make a small purchase to support them which is now why I have told them all not to leave me the books anymore.
I bought this bag from the Betterware book and it cost about £3 at the time which was my aim really to just a small purchase. The bag was then delivered to my door a couple of weeks later wrapped in a p-lastic bag which I simply cut to open, The bag is rectangular in shape but not far off square and is mainly red in colour, the bag has stripes of red, lime green and white on it so is nice and bright. The bags size is 34 x 28cm.
The bag is made of quite stiff fabric and has a small opening about an inch from the top for you to put your hand in to remove the pegs, the hole isn't really very big and I have been know to struggle pulling the pegs out of it along with my hand if I try to pick out a few pegs at a time. The top of the bag has a plastic coated wire hook like a coat hanger to place over your washing line.
The peg bag is pretty strong and tends to get left on the line along with the pegs to be honest as I am too lazy to keep putting them back in the bag, the bag is suitable for the job although to keep it in place on the line I have it behind a peg as otherwise it slips along the line and annoys me. I don't really have much use for the peg bag since like i say I tend to leave the pegs on the line apart from when I hang out large towels when I want the pegs out of my way.
The bag holds a couple of packets of pegs easily and the weather hasn't faded it although it is now getting a little dirty which is easily solved by removing the wire and then placing through the washing machine I just need to get round to doing it.
