Clothes Pins

Clothes pins were used before the era of automated washing machines and dryers, back when clothes had to be dried in the sun. These pins have the utility of keeping clothes pinned on the drying wire so that they do not fly off with a strong breeze. Even today, there exist a number of households all over the world where clothes pins are one of the most important hardware components for washing clothes. A number of people still believe that drying clothes in the sun makes wearing them much healthier than drying them in machines.

Clothes pins are available in a variety of materials, colors and designs. You can buy plastic clothes pins in assorted colors for as low as $8 for about a hundred and fifty pieces. Wooden clothes pins, which have an unfinished and raw look to them, are a little more expensive and are available for about $3 for approximately fifty pieces. You can also buy colored wooden clothes pins for almost the same price as the normal wooden pins. If you are planning to use these pins on a regular basis then you must understand that these pins are not very strong and break very easily. So, it is always advisable to keep your stock filled with a little extra supply.

These days, clothes pins are increasingly being used even for the purpose of art and craft. These pins become extremely essential for keeping paintings pinned to their stand while the wet paint dries. They are therefore, available not only in grocery stores and in hardware stores, but also in stores that sell art supplies.
