Double Folding Mesh Cube
Perfect fit in my linen closet!
We were needing several laundry bins to pre-sort our laundry, but only had a 26-inch square space to use.
After scouring the internet, I found these gems! I bought one of each color, and combined with an old black bin from my college days, we created the perfect laundry organization for our new home!
These bins are made of very sturdy material. The handles are wide and well-sewn. You can carry a whole bin-full of clothes to the laundry room (or laundromat) with ease and not wince at the fabric digging into your hand under the weight of a week's worth of laundry.
These bins would have been perfect when we lived in a small apartment. If we'd had 4 of these back then it would have saved a ton of space instead of having a bunch of random sized plastic bins.
The different colors allow us to "color-code" our loads for white, colors, darks, an delicates or towels.
The mesh bins very easily fold down into their stow-away size. In fact, the way they fold down it almost seems like they prefer to be that way. A small child could do it. Or a full grown idiot.
Each mesh cube holds a full large load of laundry for our machine, your average top loading washer. I'm sure a full one of these would easily fill a side-loading washer as well.
Five months after moving into our home and this is still my most proud organization project in the whole house. I call it my "pride and joy" during the "welcome to our new home show-off and tour" spectacular.

I have used this as a hamper for eight years -- two years of high school dorm life, four of college dorm life, and two of apartment life -- and I am only just now having to replace it. I have been extremely tough on it. I have always overloaded it, dragged it everywhere instead of carrying it, and for two years I dragged it up and down two flights of concrete stairs every time I had to do laundry. Even after all that the handles are completely intact, and only now is the bottom starting to get holes in it. I have no idea how anyone could make such a durable product, but this is by far the best dorm laundry bag anyone could buy. Plus, it takes up less room than a traditional basket, since it stands up straight.
I'm switching to one of The Container Stores crush cans now since they look a little more home-life instead of dorm-life :) but would still recommend these bags to anyone!

Purchased all 3 colors for college. Larger than expected, breathable for damp towels, handles stitched on well for transporting. Liked that they are individual vs. attached to use for sorting and taking separately to the laundry room. Great colors.

Best Laundry Sorting Baskets Ever
I absolutely love these bins. Storing is a breeze and they hold just the right amount for a full washer load. Only problem is there are not enough colors. I wish I had seven or eight different colors as it would make sorting laundry even easier. As it is I have pinned a label on each one so I know which load is in which bin. Carrying one to the laundry room is a breeze. I use the larger single bins for sorting for the dryer. For the OCD Laundry Queen these have been a dream come true.
