Extra long retractable washing lines can either be wall mounted or put on a post. They are perfect for people who have enough space for a long washing line and big enough yards to install one in. Becuase they are extra long they can take up to 5 loads of laundry. It is also great for big pieces of laundry like sheets and blankets. A decent extra long retractable washing line will take a lot of washing and is less intrusive than lines on poles or big rotary washing lines.
They can be installed outside in the garden or inside if you have the space and because the lines wind up automatically you can stash it out of the way once your washing have finished drying. Extra long retractable washing lines are good value and a neat way to dry your laundry if you don’t want a permanent washing line taking up space.
Make sure the space that it needs to extend to and from are the right distance. You will need a big enough wall space to work with especially when you need to put up a extra long retractable washing line. If you don’t have enough wall space you will have to install it on a post to another post. The area you mount the extra long retractable washing line in also needs to be well ventilated and should get the maximum amount of sun and wind for that area in your home or garden.
When installing your washing line make sure it is the correct height for the person that will be using the washing line. The line also needs to be mounted to a secure surface, ideally a brick wall or on steel posts. If you are going to hang a lot of washing on your extra long retractable washing line it operates under high tension so for it not to be ripped from the wall.
