What's yours like?

I have a horrible old one which I hate.
It's to go in our bedroom so I'll have to look at it.

Can you post a pic of yours or give me some inspiration?

We have this which has basically changed my life Blush Grin I have one compartment each for whites, darks, colours and towels/bad stains

We have this one and I love it. Great to keep whites and darkes separate and it looks ok too. I didn't want plastic or wicker.

@imabusybee sadly I don't have space for that!

Do like the John Lewis one.

DH and I finally got rid of our separate old tatty wicker ones and now use this, one half darks and the other lights. It’s a bit of a beast though. DC have slimline ones from Dunelm that I’m really impressed with

We've got 3 of something like these. One for whites/lights, one for darks/colours and one for coat hangers. Fits one load of washing and easily portable. We had one of those 3 way split ones but I didn't like fishing the dirty clothes out to put in a plastic tub then fishing them out to go in the machine.

This one:

Bought after years of staring angrily at an old and nasty one but never getting round to replacing it.

I use the large blue IKEA bags as they’re easy to carry, I squish them down the side of the washing machine when I’m not using them and they don’t take up space, I think they’re only 50p, had mine for years, they’ve lasted longer than any baskets I previously had!

I converted to laundry bags. A lot easier to deal with and keep clean as you just stick them in the washing machine with their contents.

What brand? Do they come with a stand of some sort?
