Each basket hold the same amount of laundry as our washing machine. I labeled them with the exact contents so there is no longer the question of what to do with the gray laundry. We made it to fit the space behind our bedroom door. No more digging through the hamper to get all the clothes to fill that load. :)
Good idea for the laundry room, but use as sorting baskets for colors. Have family members sort into the baskets when bringing in dirty clothes. Then when a basket is full, it's time to load into the washing machine!
