Clothing is an important part of most people's lives - whether you're wearing it for work, to keep yourself warm or simply love to try different styles, chances are you've got at least a few different types of clothing in your closet.

Of course it's important to keep clothes clean. Washing, hanging and folding clothes leaves plenty of room for accidental stains or damage to fragile materials.

It's important that you choose the right clothes pin when hanging out your garments on the washing line, clothes horse or on coat hangers.

There are plenty of types available - from the old fashioned wooden pegs through to plastic and hanging clips. There are even funky clothes pegs in a range of fun styles and designs if you want something different or are looking for craft items to entertain the kids.

Plastic pegs are a popular choice these days.

There are many different styles to choose from including hanging, rust free and no mark pegs.

If you want a peg that is durable and easy to care for, plastic is the way to go.

Wooden Clothespins

If you prefer something more old style and classic, you may choose a wooden peg.

The simple spring clip peg is still popular and is a great choice if you want pegs that look more natural and homey.

Of course it's important to make sure they aren't left outside in the rain or hung on washing that may take a long time to dry.

These pegs are more likely to stain or grow mildew when exposed to a long period of moisture.

Available in many styles from the old fashioned pin peg through to the metal spring type, there's a type for every need.
