The lady of Lady and the Carpenter e-mailed me about trying their clothespins and I didn’t hesitate to say yes. I consider myself a bit of a clothespin connoisseur. Ok that’s a stretch, but I’ve tried and killed many sets of clothespins in my time.
When I got my set of Kevin’s Clothespins in the mail a few weeks ago, my first thought was, these are a work of art. There is something about a piece of hand-crafted wood that always impresses me. When that artwork can be a functional part of my work here on my micro homestead, it instantly endears itself to me. But I had to put these to the test!
Kevin’s Clothespins on the Line…
Here is how I put Kevin’s Clothespins to the test
- Clothes – check
- Towels – check
- Comforter – check
- Rugs – check
- 5 lbs weight tied into a sock – yep CHECK! When I saw that Commonsense Homesteading try it, I had to!
These pins have some MUSCLE! My line wanted to give out but the pins never broke a sweat! These beautiful clothespins held their weight and a 1000x more. They did what it took 4 plastic pins to do. I love to hang my laundry out and I go throw bags of clothespins every year. I was blown away but the craftsmanship, quality and strength of Kevin’s clothespins.
Here is a little more info on the Kevin’s Quality Clothespins
- Made in the USA
- Locally sourced materials
- Bigger, heavier spring from an American manufacturer that won’t rust or corrode. You won’t find that on standard imports.
- Longer pin and thicker wood than standard pins
- You won’t need a 100 to get the job done. In my trial I found 1 Kevin’s clothespin could do the work of 4 of my store-bought pins.
Hands down, Kevin’s Quality Clothespins by Lady & the Carpenter are the best pins I’ve ever used. I am hooked and won’t ever be able to go back to the flimsy pins of my past. I mentioned these awesome little SUPER PINS to my friend Karen at Lil’ Suburban Homestead and she had to try them too…so don’t take my word for it alone.
