Next up is the Rubber Maid Hip Hugger Laundry Basket. As the name suggests, this is suited for those who like to carry their laundry beside their hip, not in front of them.

It’s well constructed, and the grip is constant and comfortable, so you’ll have no worries when bringing heavier amounts of laundry.

Another product from Rubbermaid made this list. This time, it’s all basic. The Rubbermaid Laundry Basket is a 1.6-bushel, plastic basket that is as toned down as it can be and only focuses on its main function: to carry your laundry. With its 22.5″ x 16.5″ x 10.9″ dimensions, this is a large basket, but not large enough that it’ll be hard for you to carry it in corridors.
One of the reason people is buying this is that it is reminiscent of the older designs Rubbermaid had back in the 90s. It stayed true to its original design and durability, but also fixed some of its earlier issues. If your old Rubbermaid laundry basket broke recently, this is the replacement you are looking for. But if you’re fairly new to the company, give this one a shot as well! It’s priced well for its size, and is durable enough to carry loads of clothing. One advantage of this product is that if you overload it just a little bit, it would amount to one full load of laundry. It has the room to support such amount of clothing.
We now have another collapsible laundry basket in our list! The EZFOLDR feels lonely already, so here’s Proper Goods to the rescue. Their collapsible laundry basket looks more durable compared to the top on the list since its made of plastic. The basket is also in a different orientation: it is a taller basket, with dimensions of 27″ x 17″ x 3″. Lastly, unlike the EZFOLDR which is, well, foldable, this basket pops up! From its flat state, just pull the handles up and the rest will come with it. Easy to use and easy to store!
This is easier to set up and store compared to the #1 in our list, and its made of more durable material as well. It’s a fairly new product so the reviews isn’t that much unlike the other products, but the quality and portability of this basket makes this a good competitor. Its also a small product, so that is one thing to consider. It’s perfect for dorm usage that has a limited space for anyone to use. It’s easy to transport, durable and versatile; it has a good price-to-quality ratio as well.
This product is basically the Sterilite Ultra Square Laundry Basket, but on a more standard size. You can enjoy the features of the earlier one here as well: titanium-made handles, no snag sides, and very durable plastic material. What differs this from the other one is its 2-bushel capacity which is a step up from the first Sterilite basket in this list. Aside from that, it is bigger, having a dimension of 27″ x 18.5″ x 12″. This basket is more optimal for a house with a large family settling in.
It’s sturdy and lightweight, perfect for heavy duty laundry duties. No more, no less. A very simply designed basket that should do its work efficiently. It is also affordable and right for its price, so buying one of these shouldn’t be a waste. It might not have a lot of good reviews but it’s probably carelessness of the owners. It’s still a worth looking at especially for this price range.
By now, another Rubbermaid product entering this list shouldn’t be a shock for you. This company has been in this industry for a long while now, and their products have been trusted by people for generations already. As the last item on the list, the Flex N’ Carry Laundry Basket’s design is not like the typical ones listed here. Instead, it looks like a traditional basket, with the handles meeting inside your one hand. It is a compact shape, making it easier for transport and carriage.
It might look soft (and feel soft), but it’s actually durable, capable of holding almost 2 bushel of clothing. With its dimensions 24.2″ x 16.6″ x 14.5″ , the basket is large, yet the form it has doesn’t make this a problem at all. Its flexible material should keep the basket safe from bending. You’ll have no worries when using this basket with heavy loads.
Its pliable and simplistic design were very welcomed by the customers. It’s a new breather for the bland choices of laundry baskets available (as if it’s a redeeming factor for a purchase) and is worth the low price tag it provides.
This list provides you with a lot of options for your basket laundry needs: some are bigger than the others, some are taller, and some are collapsible. Before you make your purchase, ask yourself: what kind of basket do I need mostly? Do I always have a large amount of laundry that I need a heavy duty basket for it? Or do I need to save space a lot since my room is pretty crammed? Maybe I should get taller ones so I can squeeze them beneath my appliances, or wider ones so that when I toss my laundry, it surely will go inside the basket? Also consider the reputation of each company that made it to this list and check whether their available products right now are of good quality, or there might be a descent.
