The Container Store Stacking Laundry Basket
Best laundry basket
This basket’s simple design, light weight, and durability put it above the rest of the models we tested.
The Container Store’s Stacking Laundry Basket is lightweight, sturdy, and easy to carry. It performed better than any other laundry basket in our testing. The handles—which tend to be a point of failure for baskets—held up to thorough testing with their simple but tough design. If you need more than one for a multi-person household or to separate lights and darks, this basket’s ability to stack is a bonus.
Starplast Tall Flex Laundry Basket
An overall great hamper
Thanks to ample ventilation, these will dry out damp clothes, and they’re easy enough to carry around the house.
If you want a hamper over a traditional basket, we recommend the Starplast Tall Flex Laundry Basket. It’s sturdy and well ventilated, so sweaty clothes won’t get moldy, and because it’s flexible, you can grip both handles in one hand for easy transport down steps.
Honey-Can-Do SRT-01235 Heavy-Duty Triple Laundry Sorter
For sorting your laundry
If you like to be organized, this is a good option. There are three separate bags that can be removed individually.
The Honey-Can-Do SRT-01235 Heavy-Duty Triple Laundry Sorter allows you to separate dirty clothes between people or loads of laundry. Because it’s on wheels, you can roll the whole thing to the laundry room or carry each bag individually.
Seville Classics Water Hyacinth Oval Double Hamper, Hand-Woven
The attractive option
Nice to look at and functional, with two separate bins for sorting and removable canvas for transport.
If your laundry has to be out in the open in your bedroom, the hand-woven Seville Classics Water Hyacinth Oval Double Hamper is a nice option. It has two bins for sorting, and you can remove its canvas bag for transport to and from the laundry room.
