Simple Housewares Double Laundry Hamper with Lid

Staff Pick

Available in black, brown, pink, dark and light grey, blue and beige, this lidded hamper is a classic way to subtly store your dirty laundry until you get a chance to wash it. The two sections store darks and lights for easy separation, and there are cutout handles should you need to move it.

It can hold 60 liters of clothing but is lightweight and easy to move around thanks to the built-in, cut out handles.

Put it in the corner

Pro level

Simple Housewares Heavy-Duty 3-Bag Laundry Sorter Cart

This is a little too industrial for use in a family bathroom. Still, if you have a larger household and a dedicated laundry room, this is a fab tool for being very organized and sorting your washing into categories. Each heavy-duty grey bag holds 13 gallons of clothes, and the unit, although large, is easy to move around as it's on caster wheels.

It'll all come out in the wash

Our overall staff pick, the Simple Housewares Double Laundry Hamper with Lid, is recommended as it has two sections so that you can pre-sort your dark and lights, saving you time in the long run. It also has a lid, which means you can ignore what's in the hamper until you have the time to deal with it.

If you're not worried about seeing your laundry, one lidless option we like is the GooBloo Extra Large Woven Coiled Round White Laundry Hamper with Handles, this is an attractive basket-style hamper that won't ruin the aesthetics of your bedroom.

If you're lucky enough to have a utility or laundry room, however, we'd suggest the Simple Housewares Heavy-Duty 3-Bag Laundry Sorter Cart. With not just two, but three separate sections, this is a very efficient option for anyone who wants to drill down and climb that laundry mountain.
