The main reason why you purchased a clothesline in the first place is so that you can take advantage of all the free sunlight and fresh breeze to dry your laundry naturally and without electric consumption. So why would anyone want to cover it up? Is a clothesline cover – especially one that comes from CLEVACOVER – as good investment as any clothesline product? The answer is a resounding YES!
Without a clothesline cover, your laundry items are left to various weather elements you have no control over with. A clothesline cover can add much-needed protection to your wet washing in more ways than you can imagine. If you’re still on the sceptic side about it, listed below are the top 5 things you need to know about clothesline covers – to help you decide in finally buying one.
PREVENT PREMATURE FADING AND/OR DISCOLOURATION
Yes, sunlight and fresh breeze are great for laundry drying without extra costs that are associated with using an automatic dryer – perfect for whitening white items and removing stains and blemishes the natural way. But with coloured fabrics, a clothesline cover can ensure that its brightness can be retained and yet, have the same fresh scent like any other laundry items when fully dry.
GUARD AGAINST BAT POO, BIRD DROPPING, AND FALLING LEAVES/TWIGS
When you’ve finally taken down your fresh laundry at the end of the day, a single stain from bird droppings can ruin an otherwise perfectly pristine garment. And those dried leaves/twigs stuck in between are entirely bothersome to remove and very itchy when it comes in contact with the skin. Yes you can re-wash that tiny stained part or just leave it as it is
(because you’re not going to spend more precious minutes dealing with it). Or, you can patiently remove minute debris – but who has extra time to do that for all the affected clothing items? This wouldn’t be the case if your clothesline has a fitted cover! On a particularly hot day, fabrics can still get that sun-kissed scent even without direct sun exposure – and guaranteed no foreign components that shouldn’t be on it.
AVOID UNEXPECTED RAIN SHOWERS FROM RUINING THE ENTIRE BATCH OF LAUNDRY
The sun is shining when you started hanging your wet washing on the line. But the fickle-minded weather can instantly instigate it to rain on your parade of laundry. Those with quick reflexes are lucky enough to snatch up all the items and bring them safely indoors. But all sorts of negative emotions can well up because you’re particularly proud of how you’ve arranged the items according to your ‘hanging’ style. But what if you’re already out for an errand, or you’re completely distracted by the onslaught of rain pouring over your meticulously washed fabrics? It’s obvious how a clothesline cover would come in very handy to avoid this type of scenario. Install one right away and you can give yourself a big pat on the back, come rain or shine.
IT’S GOT CLEVER FEATURES TO LIVE UP TO ITS NAME
The Clevacover Folding Frame Clothesline Cover has a modern ‘A’ frame design to allow easy trickling of rain water from the unit to the ground to avoid putting on additional weight to the clothesline and the cover itself. The Clevacover Rotary Clothesline Cover, on the other hand, has plenty of vents to ensure that extra breeze can pass through with no hindrance – keeping the clothesline in its upright position even when there are strong wind gusts. Both types of clothesline covers are made from heavy duty PVC material that is UV resistant and waterproof. Plus, the design allows for compatibility with almost any clothesline depth – with its surplus material hanging conveniently over the clothesline arms.
IT’S SO EASY TO INSTALL
Even if you haven’t honed your DIY skills yet, you can do this in a jiffy!
Here’s how to install a rotary clothesline cover:
- Attach the two flex poles on the underside of the cover.
- Allow the flex poles to go through the loops sewn onto the underside to ensure a dome-shaped outcome.
- Tie the straps at the top centre onto the top of your clothesline
Here’s how to install a fold down clothesline cover:
- Position the single bar to go across the cover underneath to elevate the cover to an A-shaped position.
- Position the handle clamp onto the clothesline side frame, adjusting accordingly to suit the different widths of the clothesline.
- Make sure you there are no protruding or sharp items in the way as you position the cover over the clothesline.
