An eco-friendly and more sustainable choice for clothes pegs
Made in Australia, these high-quality stainless steel pegs by Morgan & Taylor are the best eco-friendly clothes pegs compared to other alternatives such as plastic pegs or wooden pegs.
The pegs are constructed from marine-grade steel that possesses remarkable durability and resilience. When faced with moisture and rain, marine-grade stainless steel pegs remain unaffected by rust. The longer lifespan makes them a sustainable option that helps reduce landfills.
These stainless steel pegs do not leach any harmful chemicals or dyes that could potentially stain or damage clothing. These pegs also exhibit a superior grip that keeps clothes firmly in place. The sturdy jaws of the pegs exert a strong clamping force, preventing garments from slipping or being blown away.
Morgan & Taylor Marine-Grade Stainless Steel Pegs can be used beyond hanging laundry too! It's a multipurpose tool - ideal for hanging photos and kids' artwork, decorative purposes, sealing food packets, hanging storage space or as a handy office organiser!

How many clothes pegs do I need?
For a small household consisting of 1-2 people, having around 30-40 pegs is generally sufficient.
On the other hand, larger households, typically comprising 4 people or more, may require a greater number of clothes pegs. In such cases, it is advisable to have approximately 60-80 pegs available.
What is the difference between metal pegs and marine-grade stainless steel pegs?
Metal pegs, in a general sense, refer to pegs made from any type of metal. This category can include pegs made from materials such as aluminium, iron, or even coated metals. Marine-grade stainless steel pegs are specifically made from stainless steel, a corrosion-resistant alloy, and the most common type used is 316 stainless steel.
The key difference between metal pegs and stainless steel pegs lies in their resistance to rust, and their durability and strength.
Resistance to rust: While some metal pegs may be susceptible to rusting over time, stainless steel pegs are specifically designed to withstand rust and corrosion because of the chromium content in the stainless steel that forms a protective layer on the surface. This prevents oxidation and rust formation even when the pegs are exposed to moisture or harsh weather conditions.
Durability and strength: The stainless steel material is known for its high tensile strength, meaning that stainless steel pegs are less likely to bend or break under pressure compared to other metals.
How long do stainless steel pegs last?
High-quality stainless steel pegs, particularly those made from marine-grade (such as Morgan & Taylor pegs) or 304-grade stainless steel, are specifically designed to resist rust and corrosion. This means they have higher resistance to rust and corrosion due to environmental factors such as moisture, wind and salt air. When properly stored and cared for, the stainless steel pegs can last you a lifetime.
How to store or care for stainless steel pegs?
Proper storage and care of stainless steel pegs can help maintain their quality and extend their lifespan. Here are some tips to consider:
1. Rinse after use: After each use, rinse the stainless steel pegs with clean water to remove any dirt, salt, or chemicals they may have come into contact with. This helps prevent potential corrosion or build-up on the surface of the pegs.
2. Dry thoroughly: Ensure that the pegs are completely dry before storing them. Wipe them with a clean cloth or allow them to air dry in a well-ventilated area. Moisture can contribute to rust formation, so it's important to keep the pegs dry.
3. Store in a dry location: When not in use, store the stainless steel pegs in a dry area. Choose a storage spot that is protected from moisture and humidity, such as a covered container, a peg bag, or a peg basket. This helps minimise exposure to environmental elements that could lead to rust or corrosion.
4. Avoid prolonged exposure to harsh conditions: While stainless steel pegs are designed to withstand a variety of weather conditions, prolonged exposure to extreme conditions, such as constant saltwater or highly corrosive environments, can still impact their longevity. If possible, limit their exposure to such conditions.
