3 uses for your stainless steel octopus hanger
The stainless steel octopus hanger is a convenient and versatile laundry tool - here are our top 3 uses for your octopus hanger.
Once you've discovered a stainless steel octopus hanger, it quickly becomes an essential part of your laundry toolkit, and you'll wonder how you ever hung laundry without it.
Not only do they basically last forever, but stainless steel octopus hangers are extremely versatile.
What are the benefits of an octopus hanger?
Everyone needs to dry their laundry, the main options are to use a tumble dryer, line dry outside, or line dry inside (on a clothes horse for example).
Using a tumble dryer isn't energy efficient or environmentally friendly, and whilst it's sometimes the only option when the weather is cold and wet, we prefer to line dry wherever possible.
Hanging laundry outside is a great way to take advantage of the free and eco-friendly way of drying laundry.
It can however feel demoralising when unexpected rain sweeps in and you're faced with needing to quickly relocate your half-dried laundry from outside.
Or you have visitors dropping by and prefer to tuck the laundry away somewhere out of site.
This is why the octopus hanger is so convenient, move 24 items from outside to inside in a heartbeat by relocating 1 simple hook.
It's a win-win for both the environment and for convenience.
Why Stainless steel?
Plastic octopus hangers are, well, plastic. They are flimsy, notorious for breaking easily, and once broken and sent to landfill, are estimated to take up to 500 years to decompose.
Marine grade stainless steel octopus hangers are built to pretty much last forever. Made of premium stainless steel, they won't rust, are extremely difficult to break, and unless you lose it, can be passed on to the next generation rather than contributing to landfill.
