Mum sparks heated debate about how to use a clothes peg on a washing line

When you hang your washing on a clothes line, where do you put the peg? At the top, right?

Well, one mum seems to have a different answer.

The woman, from Australia, shared an image of a towel on the line.

It seems innocuous at first until you realise the clothes peg is on the side, not the top of the towel.

The mum started a heated debate, with many disagreeing that it was the right place to put the peg.

On the Australian cleaning Facebook page, which has 87,000 members, many couldn’t understand by her suggestion that the peg should go anywhere but the top.

A small minority were on the woman’s side.

The woman who started the entire debate had written on the page: ‘I think this is the right way to use clothes pegs, not putting them on the top. I have been doing it wrong my whole life. What do you think?’.

People weren’t having it though.

One person commented: ‘I think you’re insane,’ while another wrote it would be ‘too hard to find when you’re weaving in between the lines grabbing sheets in a hurry because it’s about to rain’. 

One commenter wrote: ‘Each to their own, but funny how in 2020 – they are now telling all previous generations of people who have hung out their clothes to dry how they have done it wrong. Oh so funny’.

A woman also wrote: ‘I hate peg marks at the best of times, so would hate this seeing as it’s right in the middle’.

Others worried about the logistics: ‘They would end up all bunched up from the wind and not dry. Pegging to the line makes them stay in place and dry properly and evenly’.

But some people were on the original poster’s side, saying: ‘Sometimes I even use four pegs, two at the top and the others at the bottom sides, works a treat.’
