      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Pegs that are durable and cheap + there colourful :-)

      Introduction
      To be honest I buy a lot of stuff from asda as it seems to be so convenient getting the things that the home needs while doing the weekly shopping. But when it comes to clothes pegs I have learnt my lesson about buying a huge number of pegs for a pound from pound shops. Asda don't seem to cut corners and that's what I like about them.

      The price:
      The price of this product is merely £1 for 36 individual pegs. Technically you are paying around 2.7p per peg. Thinking of it like that makes them seem almost free!!! This pricing from asda is seriously reasonable, sometimes I wonder how they make a profit out of these things.

      The product:
      You get 36 pegs in 3 different colours pink, light blue and orange. Colours that are sure to brighten up your mood while hanging up the washing on that cold Monday morning!!!! They are made from a light but not flexible plastic that you would normally get on a clothes peg. They do seem a bit stronger though than your average peg.

      My experience:
      After having these for a few months I did realise that the pegs have to started to rust very slightly on the metal part. I don't know about if that is bad for the clothes but I think a few months of usage is ok. I have not had any problems with using these pegs as they are easy to open and they do not fall apart easily unlike wooden pegs after it rains. The colours really do come in handy when looking for them on the ground,they are definitely easy to spot.

      Would I recommend?
      £1 that is all there is to it. £1 = 36 pegs. Cheap and effective, you can not go wrong with these. I recommend these without a doubt.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Recommended. These can even be left outside in winter without much harm, they still work.

        When it comes to clothes pegs i generally buy the plastic ones because they last longer, look better, and are much easier to clean.

        They can also be wiped dry when they've been out in the rain, whereas wooden ones have water inside which takes a little time to dry out. I therefore recommend plastic ones, and these Asda brand ones in particular.

        The pegs are easy to use, just get them out the packet and start clipping up washing. They're not in pieces so you don't need to build them yourself. They just clip on the washing and don't rip them or create holes, they just hold them in place firmly and can easily be pulled off without excessive force.

        As far as durability goes these top wooden ones by far. They aren't badly affected by rain and when they do get wet you can just wipe them dry.

        My current pegs have been in use for 2 years, that's entirely outside too, so 2 winters and still going strong. None of them have broken although a couple have very minor cracks. They are still usable though.They grip to clothes well and can even hold up double bed sheets or folded over towels.

        The plastic feels quite thick and not at all flimsy, it's not completely opaque and they are very obvious in the sunshine what with being bright colours. The plastic on a couple has cracked as I mentioned but dropping them on the floor won't do much damage, even onto concrete from head height.

        If you step on a couple by accident its a bit 50/50 as to whether or not they will survive. They usually can be stepped on with only a little pressure and not break but I wouldn't land on them as the clip might break and they're pretty much useless after that.

        These are great for hanging up all sorts and work well. They're built to last and made of good quality plastic. They're also quite easy to clean, just a wipe down will do if they get muddy or covered in grit etc.

        Overall these are great pegs, they're the right size, grippy, easy to get on and off (they don't jam) and they're good value for money. I would recommend them over any wooden pegs but just make sure you clean them regularly or dirt gets on your clean washing. Recommended pegs.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          works well

          Clothes pegs are something i'm sure most households have (unless you are living in flats are can't hang up your clothes outside). I've bought a range of pegs from different places as at times with daily use some have cracked or randomly dissapeared (i've no idea where they go) and so my peg basket has an assortment of different pegs from wooden to plastic and different designs.

          Although I do also dry my clothes in the drier, when it's a nice sunny day outside I do think it's nice to hang up the clothes outside and so having clothes pegs come in handy.

          One of the packs of pegs I bought are these ones from asda they hold 36 pegs of different colours and are on sale at £1. I found them in the homeware department next to washing up baskets and so they are easily found.

          I think the pegs are of a standard size and are used easily to hang up clothes. They are sturdy and would last quite a long time without it falling apart. They have a nice grip at the top of the peg which allows it to open easily when pressed together, causing the bottom of the peg to open out and grip onto your clothes.

          They have never fallen off the clothes line. Also I bring the pegs back inside after use and hang my peg basket in a cupboard indoor so my pegs have never rusted.. but i'd imagine if you leave them outside then the metal spring coil may begin to rust.

          The colour of the pegs have never come off onto any clothes, however I have noticed that when hanging up thick bath towels the corner of the towls have got indented from where the pegs were sat and so I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars instead, but these are minor marks and nothing that would wreck items of clothing or towels.

          Overall a great product that i'd have no problem purchasing again if needed.
          It holds your clothes securely on the line and does the job.

          Thanks for reading :)

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Another great product from Asda.

          I first acquired these pegs when my mum heard me moaning about my dwindling peg supply and presented me with 2 packs of Asda pegs, after a further decline in my stash (I honestly have no idea where they go) I picked up a pack recently when I was in and they were conveniently placed at the end of an aisle in a basket reminding me I needed to pick up some more. Priced at just £1 for 36 colourful pegs these work out as really good value and I don't mind replacing them when needed.

          The pegs come clipped onto cardboard strips and then tightly bound in transparent plastic, a simple sticker covers the front of the pack and tells us a little about the product although to be honest I didn't actually look at it. I have had 3 packs of these pegs with a few colours I have had blue, purple, pink, green and orange there doesn't seem to be one particular set and depends on the pack you pick up although to be honest I don't really care what colour they are as long as they work.

          The pegs are made of plastic and have a thick part at the top which allows for easy gripping and suitable width that the pegs do not end up snapping. The metal part in the middle is solid and as yet I have had none of the pegs snapping on me which is excellent for such a cheap product in my opinion. They are suitable and strong enough to hold anything from socks to heavy towels and bedsheets, they have a good grip on them that doesn't mean the clothes slip out when these are in use however I have found that on thick towels the pegs seem to leave an indentation mark where the pegs have been situated however it's not a huge deal for me. I have also found that the few pegs I have left on the line are still well coloured after being out in the murky scottish weather for months and are still in good shape. I have also used these pegs for a few things around the house such as holding closed open packets and although they are a little big they do the job well. My son has also played with these a few times for all sorts of games and again none of them have become broken in anyway so they do seem very safe and durable.

          Overall I would recommend anyone give these a go, not only do they do the job well but they also stand the test of time and are durable as well as being brightly coloured. Definitely one to give a try.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A fantastic packet of pegs from Asda.

          Our local Asda is absolutely huge! It has a large homeware department upstairs and I can often be found up there during my monthly Asda shop (for blue charge and what not). Over the past couple of years I have had some absolute bargains from Asda including a rice cooker for £7 and a slow cooker for not much more! These clothes pegs caught my eye because they were bright and they were just £1.00 too! In our home we have a washing line that pulls out over the bath and clips on to two hooks on the wall. This is the perfect place for hanging knickers, socks and other small items to dry such as flannels. This stops our cat pulling them down off the airing horse and means I do not have to keep rewashing knickers when they get covered in cat hair.

          Within this packet of pegs are 36 pegs in three colours; green, orange and red. The colours are evenly divided in to 12 of each colour. I like to be a little bit strange and match up my pets when I am hanging up items so these pegs are ideal for me - well, until one breaks. These are plastic pegs with a spring in the middle. They are basic pegs really and you use your fingers to press an end and the peg will open, then position it over the item you want to hold in place and let it go. These pegs are a little bit tough to open but not enough for them to make my fingers uncomfortable, just enough to show that they are tough and to keep your garments held in place.

          Since I have begun using these pegs I have only broken two so far. That is just because of my heavy handedness and I don't believe it is down to a fault with the pegs or the materials used. I have not had any pegs fall off my clothing and I have not had any clothing fall off the thin washing lines hanging above my bath.

          As I said above I use these pegs for light small items and so the marks sometimes left behind from these pegs do not bother me. I do not hang any very delicate items with these pegs so I do not incur any damage to my smaller items anyway.

          Overall I have been quite pleased with these. I have given them 4/5 because of the peg marks being left on some clothes and items. Other than that I have been pleased with the pegs. They are long lasting and £1.00 is very reasonable for 36 clothes pegs.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Get the washing dry

          I bought these pegs last year when our pegs had run down to such a level that I couldn't even hang a full load of washing out, the oegs costs £1 from Asda and you get 36 pegs in the packet.

          The pegs are packaged in a very simple plastic wrapper which is discarded after opening, the pegs inside are green, blue and purple in colour. The pegs are made of string plastic and are the usual spring loaded pegs which you press together at the top to cause the bottom to open so you can put them over your clothing on the washing line. There are a couple of packs of these pegs available but all that differs is the colour as far as I can see, you can get them in all black and in red, orange and green.

          I am very lazy with my pegs and honestly can't even tell you where I have put my peg bag as I always just leave them on the line, these pegs have been on the line all winter and over the last couple of weeks I have been using these pegs again making the most of the warm weather. I have found that a couple of the pegs have cracked but are still useable and I have found a couple have crumbled but the majority of the pegs are doing really well and are still perfectly useful for the job.

          These pegs are wider than most standard pegs which makes it easy to push them together for use which to me makes no difference but for someone like my father who has Parkinsons this is a major plus point. The pegs are attached to cardboard when they are new so if you don't need them all you can keep them all together easily. The pegs work well and keep the clothes in place from heavy towels to baby clothing.

          I would recommend these pegs they do the job and so far I have been using them for 18 months and most of the pegs remain.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Recommended.

          I never even considered writing a review on Asda Clothes Pegs - it's jut one of those things that I use daily without even thinking about. But having recently seen a review on them I thought I'd give it a go!

          The Asda Clothes Pegs come in a packet which contains 36 individual pegs and costs a very reasonable £1.00. This means that each peg equates to being just under 3p each, which is very reasonable and really about as inexpensive as I could wish for.

          The pegs are made from plastic and are a variety of colours, namely red, orange and green. The plastic is quite thick and so this makes the pegs quite sturdy. The fact that the pegs are plastic means that they can be washed so, unlike wooden pegs, then can be cleaned before use if necessary and so the legs don't mark the clothes. Before, when I have used wooden pegs, I have found that they have sometimes left dirty smudges on light coloured clothes and the clothes have then needed to be rewashed.

          The design of the pegs is typical. The two sides of the pegs are connected by wire and then you pinch the peg at the top so that you can then peg the items on the line. I find that the pegs hold the clothes pretty well and they are strong enough to be relied upon. For example, hanging up a pair of jeans takes two pegs - and this will be enough to keep them on the line.

          I store the pegs in bag within the house and through doing this I have found that the metal coiled part has not rusted and the plastic has remained in good condition.

          Overall, these are decent, inexpensive pegs which I do recommend.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A cheap packet of pegs, does the job, but leaves annoying marks

          Asda is one of those places where you can find near enough everything you could possible need or want. As I mentioned in a previous review I don't like going around the home department as I always end up buying something that I don't need. However, when I moved into my first home Asda was the first place I went to for things I might need.

          When I wake up and see the sun shining, the first thing I do is put the washing machine on. I usually do as much washing as possible as I refuse to use the tumble dryer and drain my electric. So for this reason I picked up two packs of pegs. Each pack contains 36 pegs, and costs £1.

          The pegs come in three colours, red, light green and orange. There are 12 of each colour. The peg is made from two pieces of plastic held together by a spring in the centre. When the peg is closed there are two holes for the washing line to sit between, a smaller hole and a slightly bigger one. Opening the peg takes a little effort, but this ensures washing stays on the line.

          Washing has always stayed on the line when I've been using these pegs. Thick washing, like winter coats, stay on the line well too, this is because the peg can open relatively wide (around an inch). The only problem I've had is after washing has dried it sometimes leaves peg marks upon the washing where the pegs have secured it on the line.

          I'm quite lazy when it comes to pegging my washing in and out. Once the washing has dried I take the washing off and leave the peg on the line right where it was to start with. My pegs spent the winter out on the line and now I have very few left. Once the weather picked up again I started to hang my washing out to dry (instead of all round the house!), as I started putting more and more washing on the line the pegs started to crumble one by one. The part of the peg that is used to open it would just fall away. I put my hands up and accept it was my fault for leaving them out in the appealing winter we've just had. I'm surprised that a handful of these pegs are still useable!

          I wouldn't buy these pegs again. Fair enough £1 is quite cheap for 36 pegs, but they left marks in some of the washing meaning I'd have to get the dreaded iron out (a pet hate of mine!). I think they would last the test of time if being used in conjunction with a peg bag of some sort to stop them getting weather beaten.
