Tips When Choosing a Wicker Laundry Basket

How many times have you found yourself tripping on dirty laundry as you try to find your way around the bathroom? How often, even when you are in a tearing hurry, have you been forced to take ages making a neat pile out of the laundry, safely away from where it might get splashed with water? The answer for most of us is much more than we would like it to be.

At a time when maneuvering around piles of laundry waiting for the washing day has become a day to day affair for most of us, have you ever considered buying yourself a laundry hamper? Imagine how much hassle free you day to day activities in your bathroom would be with one of them around.
Even the simplest wicker laundry basket, the ones that came before laundry bags of all conceivable colors, shapes, materials and sizes began flooding the market would go on to make your life a lot easier.

So why not get yourself a wicker laundry hamper today? It will be an investment that you won’t regret!

While going shopping for a wicker clothes hamper you have to keep in mind that it be stable, waterproofed and multipurpose.

Get yourself a wicker laundry hamper with a wooden base.
Unless you are among the luckier few for whom there are phases where the laundry hamper is empty, don’t go for the collapsible clothes bags. Buy a stable structured one instead. Wicker laundry hampers often have their framework in wood. A good idea as this will ensure that your laundry hamper won’t sag with time.

Get a hamper that has been waterproofed.
If you are planning to keep your laundry hamper in a humid area like your bathroom, or somewhere where it might get splashed with water, make sure your laundry bag is waterproof. You don’t want your laundry all wet as this promotes growth of fungi and bacteria in it in addition to creating an unpleasant odor.
Check if the wickerwork of your hamper is compact. A loosely knit wicker hamper will give way to the entry of water in no time. It might also develop brown patches of damp all over it that might make it more unsightly than the dirty pile of laundry that you have at the moment.

Get a hamper that is multipurpose.
Wicker laundry hampers come within built shelves for storing soaps, detergents etc. They are at times topped with cushions and serve as a seat which will be an added advantage.

Remember, you need a laundry bag not only good looking but one that will serve your purpose as well. Don’t hesitate in spending some money on your wicker laundry basket. Rest assured that it will be money well spent.
