How do you hang your washing?

The majority of people get their laundry and peg it directly to the clothes line.

But one mum thinks it’s better to drape items and peg them on the sides instead.

On Facebook, the Australian lass remarked: "I think this is the right way to use clothes pegs, not putting them on the top. Have I been doing it wrong my whole life. What do you think?"

The post went viral – and the response to it was very mixed.

While some believe this technique can minimise pesky peg marks, you run the risk of laundry staying damp.

One commenter pointed out: “Good in terms of minimising peg marks.

“Although may take longer to dry as air is less likely to reach the upper underside, especially on a windy day.”

Others agreed that this method may not be best if you want to dry items evenly.

A responder wrote: "They would end up all bunched up from the wind and not dry.

“Pegging to the line makes them stay in place and dry properly and evenly."

And a third added: "I like to have as much towel hanging down as possible so they dry quicker rather than being doubled up like that."

Another downside is it could be trickier to find the pegs when you’re bringing the washing in.

A commenter said: "(It'll be) too hard to find when you're weaving in between the lines grabbing sheets in a hurry because it's about to rain."
