How To Keep Your Rotary Clothesline Properly Maintained?

Maintenance of Rotary Clothesline

The rotary clothes line has come a long way from the time Lance Hill fabricated the first design. There are different clothesline designs that have been created to suit every space. They come in varieties of colours and sizes. Some designs can be up to 5 metres in diameter. Many of them are flexible and can be removed or folded down. Rotary clothesline is also easy to install. It takes about an hour for one person to dig the hole and install the device, and for the concrete to dry up.

Why Does Rotary Clothesline Need Maintenance?

A clothesline is usually exposed to external elements and it accumulates dirt, spider webs, and sap over a period of time. Keeping it clean and well maintained is therefore important to increase the lifespan of the hoist. It is essential to always brush off noticeable debris and clean the line to avoid staining clean clothes. It is also a great idea to regularly inspect the different components of the clothesline and check for damage or wear and tear so as to keep it in top shape.

How to Keep the Clothesline Well Maintained?

In case any damage is noticed, repair needs to be carried out immediately with genuine spare parts before using it again. The hoist can be cleaned every couple of weeks by using kitchen sponge or damp cloth and mild detergent with clean water.

After cleaning, allow it to dry before using it again. To maintain the durability and appearance of the metal components, it is recommended that a good brand of wax or car polish should be applied on it at least twice a year. It is also important that pegs are kept clean and dry every time they are used on the line. This is to prevent them leaving dirt or rust stains on clothing. Pegs should not be left out on the line. Leaving them out will make them deteriorate rapidly and can also affect the lines in the long run. 

The rotary clothesline can be disconnected from the ground socket and folded up to give you more garden space in your backyard.

It is advisable that the hoist must be removed from the ground at least every 6 months. This is because if left in the ground for a longer period, it can become difficult to remove easily.

Benefits of Using Rotary Clothesline

For maximum efficient drying, raise the hoist higher from the ground.A rotary dryer is durable and a very cost-effective way of drying clothes.
