Things To Consider When Buying A Collapsible Laundry Basket
If you have large loads of washing, you will need a basket large enough to accommodate this. Think about the size you require before purchasing.
The most common types of collapsible laundry basket are those made from plastic and rubber, and those made of coated fabrics.
Plastic and rubber baskets fold down flat and are easy to wipe clean and fabric collapsible laundry bags and baskets look more appealing and can be folded away when not in use.
You want a laundry basket which will stand the test of time. Plastic and rubber options are durable, but some buyers have reported of the rubber splitting, so check reviews before you buy.
Fabric baskets can lose their shape after multiple uses so opt for ones that hold their shape, even when they are empty.
If you’re planning on your laundry basket being on show, you will want something which looks nice.
There are plenty of options available to suit all tastes from ones which are appealing to kids and neutral ones which will look cool in a bathroom.
Luckily collapsible laundry baskets are fairly inexpensive items, so you can take your pick when it comes to buying one. From £10-£30, there are lots to choose from.
FAQ’s Collapsible Laundry Baskets
Use warm soapy water to clean them but don’t place in the washing machine as this can affect the waterproof coating on fabric baskets.
To get rid of odours use baking soda to neutralise them.
A collapsible laundry basket can be stored flat when it’s empty, taking up less space than a standard laundry basket.
Ideal for small spaces!
There are lots of places in a home that you can keep a laundry basket, but the most popular places tend to be a bedroom, a large cupboard, a bathroom or a utilities room.
