Buying Guide

A metal laundry hamper can help with that eternal household chore: keeping up with the laundry. While perhaps less arduous than washing dishes (even with a dishwasher), laundry is one of those continuous household chores that challenge and frustrate housekeepers. Whether your laundry is for one person, for a household that includes a baby, multiple adult members or elderly or ill people with special needs, it is one of those things that must be done regularly. Metal laundry hampers offer a way to track and control laundry to be done, or laundry that has been done.

Square or Round Ventilated Metal Hampers

Square or round ventilated metal hampers are perfect for receiving soiled garments or linens. Drop in a cloth garment bag and secure it at the top – just as you might a trash can liner – and drop the dirties in as they happen. The ventilated sides allow air circulation to cut down on mildew or musty odors, while the metal protects your soiled delicates from marauding pets. As every pet owner knows to their sorrow, a teething puppy can wreak havoc with laundry, and a territory marking feline is deeply attracted to soiled linens. The metal exterior puts a stop to both behaviors.

Wire Hampers or Rolling Carts

You might not need the protection offered by a metal hamper but could still use a framework for your laundry bag. A wireframe is perfect for holding up a bag until it is full, then you are ready to simply draw the top closed and head for the laundry room or laundromat. If a removable bag isn’t necessary, putting that bag into a rolling cart – round or square – takes a weight off your shoulders and back when laundry day rolls around.

Sorting and Hanging Carts

Once the laundry is done, it needs to be sorted, folded or hung. A rolling laundry cart with sections can help with this chore. When the laundry is dry – whether on a clothesline or in a dryer, it is easy to sort it into household or personal and pop folding items into canvas bags on a metal frame. Hanging items can be placed directly on hangers, ready for transfer into closets.

Kitchen Linens

Ventilated, lidded laundry hampers are also good for kitchen linens, keeping them separate from other household laundry. A nice hamper for the kitchen is a great way to keep dish cloths, tea towels and tablecloths separated from face cloths, hand towels and larger towels used for personal care.

Some things you just don’t want in a regular laundry basket and that’s where the ventilated and lidded laundry bin comes in handy. No canvas liner for this hamper! This contains stuff you want out of sight and away from other things quickly, just as soon as the worst of whatever it was is rinsed off. Diapers, reusable personal items, deeply soiled sheets and similar items need to be separated from ordinary laundry, ready for extra-special cleaning procedures.
