Top Tips When Buying A Laundry Basket For Your Children
Have a think about the most suitable size for your requirements.
How much space is there in the room it is going in?
You’ll also want to get one that is not too big or too small for the amount of laundry you’ll be using it for.
Simple To Clean
If you’ll be putting dirty clothes that may have food or drink on it then you may wish to get a waterproof one that is wipe clean. Or even one that is attached to a wooden frame that be thrown in the washing machine.
You don’t want a basket which has lots of detail that will make it tricky to get in and clean.
Some baskets are waterproof only on the outside and so you may want one that is waterproof inside too.
Depending how far the machine is away from their bedroom you may be lugging this basket around quite a bit.
Look for one that is lightweight and includes strong, comfortable handles.
If you’re short on space there are many baskets that will fold down to almost nothing and you can store them away when not in use.
Look out for baskets that are made from safe materials.
If you’re going for a large one, make sure it’s sturdy, you don’t want it falling over!
