Meet Caleb and the Classic Easy 8 Handy Line

Laundry is one of those daily occupations you either love or hate, but for some, being able to undertake this seemingly simple task can go a long way to maintaining everyday independence.


Mrs Peggs Handy Line offers a range of practical laundry solutions to help people perform laundry tasks easily, safely and independently at home.

According to Kerry Waller from Mrs Peggs Handy Line the company is often asked if laundry equipment is covered by the NDIS. “The answer is yes -when the equipment is reasonable and necessary, and related to a participant’s disability support needs. Our products can be ordered as part of an NDIS plan.”

“We hear from participants who tell us that the Handy Line has become a life-changer for families overwhelmed with the volume of laundry they do every day. Since the Handy Line can hold over two washloads, including sheets, it really takes the burden of heavy wash days away from families and carers, allowing them to get through these daily tasks with complete ease,” Waller said. “And for those working towards the goal of living independently in their own space, being able to perform laundry tasks can have a positive impact on confidence, helping them achieve that goal.


“Take Caleb for instance”.

Caleb Crowden from Adelaide was born with cerebral palsy. Now 21 years old and motivated to live independently, he purchased a Mrs Peggs Classic Easy 8 Handy Line through his NDIS plan to help make day-to-day laundry tasks easier. “It’s the perfect height for wheelchair users like me,” he said.  “Doing the laundry has helped improve my fine and gross motor skills, moving me closer to my goal of living independently”.

Mrs Peggs has a range of Handy Lines in varying heights and sizes, as well as additional laundry accessories that help make laundry day easier.

There is a Handy Line to suit all needs and requirements – for those with reduced mobility, or who are recovering from injury or surgery and require a short-term solution, or need more long-term aid to support themself or their family.
