Laundry Baskets and Hampers
Long gone are the times when washday was only on a Monday – our laundry baskets always seems to be full to overflowing. Barely a day goes by when the washing machine isn't on, coping with ever-expanding loads of the family's laundry, which is why we’ve come up with a fantastically flexible line of laundry baskets, hampers and totes to suit all households.
We're not just talking clothes here. With bedding, the constant stream of towels, occasional curtains and even loose chair covers, there’s always something waiting to go in the machine. And when it comes out, a washing basket takes the load! They come in all sorts of shapes and styles, and you’re sure to find one that’s just right for you with our wide range of handy laundry helpers.
You’ll find all sorts in our range. Practical, hard-wearing plastic washing baskets are a popular choice as they're easy to clean and come in a large range of sizes and colours. We’ve got sleek, modern designs from brands like Joseph Joseph, and traditional standing totes too. The laundry won't do itself, but having the right accessories to store and carry your washing will make life a whole lot easier.
Easy to store
Easy storage isn’t something we often associate with laundry hampers. In fact, quite the opposite – we often think of big, bulky baskets that are hard to hide discreetly in the corner of the room. But times have changed. From folding laundry baskets and collapsible washing baskets that fit down the side of your washing machine, to quilted totes and stylish corner-shaped hampers that slot nicely into the corner of the room, you no longer need to worry about them spoiling the décor by being a total eyesore.
Comfort is everything
All that bending down to fill the basket and lugging it up and down the stairs, walking from washing machine to ironing board to bedroom and back again… it’s enough to make anyone need a lie down. But there are plenty of great ways to avoid the aches and pains that come after a long laundry session.
Freshly washed socks seem to have a life of their own, hopping out of the washing machine and straight onto the floor, however carefully you try to load the basket. Our Easy Load Laundry Basket has one curved side lower than the other to sit under the door and catch all those pesky socks, without the need to bend down and pick them up one by one. It’s also got a hip rest so it doesn’t dig into your side as you carry it from room to room. Although these sound like small things, they make all the difference when it comes to tackling hefty wash loads, one after the other.
Then there’s our Laundry on Legs basket, which makes bending down a thing of the past when hanging up the washing or doing the ironing. At first glance it looks like any other laundry basket, fitting nicely at the foot of your washing machine. But when you go to hang your washing on the line, simply push the buttons on either side and out pop four legs to elevate it to hip-height – no more stooping while you peg your clothes out.
Time to dry
After you've done your wash, how do you dry your laundry? Our wide range of clothes airers are great for natural drying; even in confined spaces. If you want to speed things up, our heated airers are the discerning choice. And if the weather is playing ball, our rotary airers come into their own. Don’t forget the pegs – we’ve got those too.
