PROS

CONS

The material (fibreboard) is not breathable.

OUR VERDICT

This collapsible laundry basket from CLEEBOURG is just as foldable as the next model. But it has a much more stable and reliable foundation. The hamper keeps its form and shape even with no clothes inside. Its classic design meshes really well with most bathrooms.

CLEEBOURG Large Laundry Baskets

Collapsible but Stable

While this model from CLEEBOURG is still a collapsible laundry basket, it looks (and acts) more like a regular laundry hamper, with their usual advantages like larger capacity and a stable foundation. Though it isn't really bigger than your average collapsible model, measuring 38 x 38 x 63 centimetres in overall dimensions, the basket has a 90-litre capacity, so you'll be able to easily fill it with 2-3 laundry loads.

Made of 2.5mm fibreboard that's covered in fabric with polyester lining that is moisture-resistant, this thing is as sturdy as they come. It comes equipped with a nice little lid. The lid has velcro straps, so it will be able to keep your clothes inside without falling off.

As far as we're concerned, there's hardly anything to complain about here. We could mention the fact that the fibreboard composition, while sturdy, isn't necessarily breathable but that really isn't that big of a deal. A much bigger deal, surprisingly enough, are these little drawstrings you can use to fasten the clothes. The handles on this grey hamper are nice too but most laundry baskets come with them, so that isn't necessarily worth mentioning.

In conclusion, this collapsible laundry basket from CLEEBOURG is just as foldable as the next model. That being said, it has a much more stable and reliable foundation. The hamper keeps its form and shape even with no clothes inside. Plus, its classic design meshes really well with most bathrooms.

BRAMBLE! Premium Collapsible Laundry Basket

Fit it Anywhere

Taking this model from BRAMBLE! seriously can be a little difficult due to its bright, almost cartoonlike colours. But you might want to do that since this product is no joke. Adding up to 62 x 44 x 8.3 centimetres in overall dimensions and measuring 85 litres capacity-wise, the basket will be able to hold lots of clean or dirty clothes when you fully extend it.

Once you're done with it, you can easily fold the model down to fit it between different appliances, under your bed, or on top of practically any cupboard.

Made with plastic and silicone inserts, this foldable laundry basket will not tear, wear off, bend, or deform with time. Even after hundreds of laundry cycles, it will be able to maintain its presentable appearance, doesn't matter how many times you fold and extend it.

Though durable, the model is surprisingly lightweight. What's more, its plastic composition makes it really easy to maintain.

With all that being said, we do have one issue with this product. The handles, despite the rubber grips, are still impractical, making it relatively uncomfortable to carry a fully-loaded basket.

Other than that, BRAMBLE! Premium Collapsible Laundry Basket will prove a great option for any large family. It should last you for ages. You can load it with lots of clothes. Plus, it will not take away too much of your space.

DOKEHOM DKA0822BNL

A Basket for Everyone

DOKEHOM DKA0822BNL (what an excellent name, really rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?), despite the uninviting name, is a great basket. First and foremost, it looks absolutely lovely. We love the dotted brown version but there's an abundance of colours and design you can choose from. Just keep in mind that the lighter colours are easily soiled, so they will require extra careful attention.

Of course, with this basket, it isn't just about the looks. While the cotton exterior makes the product look charming, the waterproof plastic liner keeps the dirt out and inner items (your clothes, naturally) clean and dry.

Furthermore, there's a nice drawstring locking closure on top of the basket. With it, you'll always be able to keep your clothes inside and dust outside. The drawstring will prove especially helpful as you carry the basket from one room to the other. Doing so, by the way, won't prove much of a challenge since the large thickened handles couldn't be more convenient and practical.

The whole thing adds up to 36 x 36 x 48 centimetres in overall dimensions. On one hand, it is great that the basket is so small since it will barely require any space. On the other, it doesn't fit as many clothing items as the other baskets on this list.

All in all, DOKEHOM DKA0822BNL is a great collapsible laundry basket. With so many colours and design options available, you'll definitely be able to find the right model. Functional and practical, this is the best basket here for smaller families.

Denny International Folding collapsible Laundry Oval Basket

One Trip is Enough

This Denny International folding basket doesn't really look like your typical collapsible basket. Now, that's not really something we have an issue with. On the contrary, it looks nice and clean, even a little elegant (well, as elegant as a laundry basket can be).

With a design like that come certain advantages and disadvantages, of course. You won't find a drawstring here to fasten your clothes and you won't be able to carry the basket with one hand. But you also won't have to stuff and crumple your clothing items. Instead, you can fold them nicely without wrinkling.

The model's capacity caps at approximately 75 litres, enough for lots of items. You shouldn't find it too challenging to fit this basket under your sink, in the car boot, or kitchen cupboard.

Made from durable plastic with a silicone insert, this basket is as rugged as the next model. Where these plastic hampers have their fabric counterparts beat is maintenance. See, here, you can just wipe it clean in a matter of seconds. That's hardly the case with fabric baskets. That being said, that silicone part isn't as durable as the plastic foundation and warps surprisingly easily.

Nevertheless, this Denny International folding basket will allow you to save plenty of space. Though the hamper is surprisingly lightweight, the handles are strong enough to support a full basket. With it, you won't have to take two trips to the washing machine.

DOKEHOM DKA0001DG

A Bag has its Advantages Too

DOKEHOM DKA0001DG (another charming name from the same company) keeps things nice and simple. There's a nice colour selection but you won't be able to choose a different design here unless you go for a different model entirely. For the most part, the product delivers across the whole board.

Now, because it is more of a bag than a basket, the model doesn't necessarily always stand still. In fact, it can be a little unsteady at times, so you'll have to balance it against the wall more often than not.

Other than that, we don't really have any complaints here. Again, because it resembles a bag more than it does a bin or a basket, you can use the product as a storage option for toys, books, CDs, and lots of different items.

Of course, this is still a collapsible laundry basket first and foremost. Its capacity measures approximately 80 litres, enough to fit a week's worth of dirty clothes from 3-4 individuals.

The model looks stylish, able to fit a neutral colour scheme as well as just about any modern, contemporary, or industrial interior. The double layer 600D Oxford fabric is robust and durable. The PE lining is waterproof, so you can store this bin anywhere you want. Just make sure to avoid machine washing because it can ruin the lining.

With DOKEHOM DKA0001DG, you'll be able to organise and de-clutter your living room. The aluminium handles are robust, soft, and comfortable. The model is easy to carry and transport. It will hold 30 kilograms worth of clothes or any other items.

What Is a Collapsible Laundry Basket?

For many of us, laundry is associated with a boring and tiresome process. Mainly, it is due to an inefficient organisation. Most people confess that gathering dirty closes strewn all over the house and sorting laundry items before a wash is a real pain in the neck.

Now, a collapsible laundry basket will definitely make your life easier and save you the trouble of searching high and low for dirty laundry. This simple yet functional household accessory will not only hide the clothing from prying eyes but also save your precious time since all the dirty items will be gathered neatly in one location. Moreover, a nice-looking hamper will add to a room interior becoming an element of decor. Plus, the "collapsible" part implies that you'll definitely be able to find enough room for it.

Once the washing machine is done with the laundry, you'll need enough space and a place to hang them. Do you know where you can find lots of space? Outside, where you can put a rotary washing line and efficiently hang your clothes. After that, you can whip out a steam iron and make those clothes look good as new.
