Laundry Hamper Overhaul

Laundry Hamper Overhaul

Make laundry a bit less lame!

Laundry. The chore that befalls us all at some point in the week – or month – depending on how many people you have in your household and who the laundry duty seems to fall upon time after time. Whether we like it or not, it piles up and inevitably needs to be done.

Some people love laundry. The aroma of detergent, the alone time, the folding. It’s almost therapeutic. And when you’re finished, you have a home full of clean clothes, towels, and blankets. Everything feels new again and you know you won’t run out of socks for a while.

If you’re on the other end of the spectrum and despise laundry, dread it, and avoid it until you’re down to your last pair of, well, everything, then laundry day can be daunting. You have to carry all your dirty things to your laundry area, wait for them to finish, switch them over, take them out, fold them, put them away, and on and on. It’s definitely not a quick and easy task, but it is a necessary one.

Whether you love it or hate it, you can at least make the process a bit less painful by enjoying your laundry items and using it as a way to add some style to your home. There’s always a silver lining. That’s where mDesign comes in!

For those of you who are like me and have the unfortunate layout of a basement laundry room, carrying laundry from upstairs down to the washing machine gets very old, very fast. Laundry baskets are awkward to fit through doorways and down stairways, and large laundry bins where you toss your dirty items daily are heavy to transport and often don’t always have the easiest to grab handles if any at all.

What you need for times like this are some heavy-duty handles for a heavy-duty job. mDesign’s collapsible laundry bag with handles is the perfect solution. The large metal handles with grips allow you to carry a heavy load without hurting your hands! Deep enough to hold all of your accumulated laundries, and collapsible to hide away while laundry is washing or to store away for future use.

More and more often homes are being built to accommodate a laundry room on the main floor or even the second floor, close to the bedrooms and bathrooms of the house. You still need to transport your laundry from bedroom to laundry room, so let’s make that as quick and painless as possible: WHEELS!

Fill up the hamper to the brim, you don’t have to worry about carrying the weight! Roll down the hall to the laundry room and get started. But the ease and convenience doesn’t stop at the wheels; there is a built-in drawstring, which lets you conceal and compact the laundry between washes. The fun font in which ‘LAUNDRY’ is written on the side gives it a contemporary feel that will go with any style, in any room of the home.

Big on separating your lights from your darks? Some laundry doers still claim this is a myth and nothing bad has happened to them from combining all colors together. But I can tell you that nobody wants all of their clothes to be light pink, and yes, it’s happened to me. The two-compartment laundry hamper with wheels fits all your needs – separation, wheels, and a removable hinged lid. Keep your items hidden when you need them concealed, and easily remove the lid when it’s time to empty out the hamper.

Spacious laundry rooms have also become more of a trend, what with all the house hunting/flipping shows, it seems having a large laundry room is increasingly popular. Which gives you the opportunity to get creative with your décor, since it’s not a room you typically get to shop for or dream about decorating and furnishing.

In this case, a more stationary option is called for! mDesign’s formbu laundry hamper includes a hinged lid that’s easy to open and close as well as a removable liner, that makes getting to the bottom of the hamper easy! The slotted wood makes it appear more like a piece of furniture than a hamper! Plus, check out the matching drying rack to complete your laundry room’s look.

Whether you need to carry it, roll it, or keep it in place, there are many options to make a dull chore a little bit more enjoyable – and easier, too!
