This morning when I saw the dark clothes basket was full and threw them into the washer I was again grateful that I installed these sorting baskets in the laundry room. I think this is one of the most helpful ideas I incorporated into our house when we built it. I thought that if you, or anyone else you know, is building a house or remodeling a laundry or bath area, you might like to see how great they work.
I sort my laundry when I bring it to the laundry room into three baskets. One for towels, one for dark clothes and one for white clothes. Each one holds a full load of laundry so if it is full when I open it, I throw it in the washer. With this system I am seldom ever behind on the laundry--maybe the folding or putting away 😃--but at least the clothes are clean.
There are actually 4 baskets here. The one that is almost out of the photo I use to store clean clothes that need ironing.
