1. Whitefurze Plastic Laundry Hamper Basket
This laundry basket has a classic rattan-style design. It’s made from plastic and is 56 cm high by 45 cm wide, which should be large enough for the average family. This laundry basket comes in a choice of colours: brown/coffee, sky blue and pink.
2. Arpan Large White Wicker Laundry Basket
This natural willow wicker basket from Arpan is made from wicker and has a white matt finish. Its dimensions are 59 cm high x 45 cm wide x 32 cm wide, so it’s a similar size to the Whitefurze Plastic Laundry Hamper Basket reviewed above. Like the Whitefurze basket, this laundry basket is a good size for a family of four or more.
The wicker basket is lined with white cloth which can be easily removed and washed.
3. Curver 55 Litre Rattan Effect Hamper
Like the Whitefurze Plastic Laundry Hamper Basket reviewed above, the Curver 55 Litre Rattan Effect Hamper is a plastic laundry basket with a rattan effect. With a 55-litre capacity, it’s a good size for a family of four or more. Its exact dimensions are 59 cm high x 42 cm wide x 32 cm deep.
4. Arpan Laundry/Washing Basket with Lid and Handle
This laundry basket from Arpan comes in a black design and is made from nylon with a sturdy metal frame. This laundry basket is 50 cm high by 35 cm wide by 25 cm deep, but it can be folded down for easy storage.
