The best laundry baskets for sorting your washing

Sorting your washing before loading it into the machine can be a time-consuming chore, and no-one wants to waste more effort on doing this than necessary.

This is where laundry baskets with different compartments can come in handy, as you can sort your washing as you go rather than having to rummage through your dirty laundry for dark and white items as and when you need them.

Here, we share the best laundry baskets for sorting your washing, and why they’ll make this chore far easier.

The Hivexagon Large Laundry Basket boasts three different sections, so you can easily separate your dark, white, and coloured washing. Each section is colour coordinated and labelled, so there will be no getting confused when it comes to deciding which section to add your dirty washing to – even for younger members of the household.

You can collapse the Hivexagon Large Laundry Basket when it’s not in use, which makes it a great option if you need to save space occasionally, and it’s made from Oxford cloth and aluminium which makes it hard-wearing and lightweight.

The frame has been designed to keep the laundry basket stable and solid, and, due to being made from aluminium, it won’t rust or corrode.
