There are lots of places to put your dirty clothes and linens. The floor is not one of them. Neither is the chair in the corner of your bedroom room. The bottom of your gym bag? No. The land of laundry holders is wide and includes plastic bins, collapsible hampers and one of our favorites, hanging laundry bags. Great for over the door, in the closet and around the bedpost or doorknob, hanging laundry baskets get your laundry off the floor and furniture and into one designated space.
Unless you have a washing machine in your bedroom, you’re going to have to carry the laundry from one room to another in your home or even further if you take your clothing and linens to a public laundry mat or a shared machine in your building. The best hanging laundry bags easily come off their hooks and provide a large and lightweight sack for carrying your laundry short and long distances.
For a convenient way to store dirty laundry and save space, check out these versatile hanging laundry bags.
