Constructed from super-sturdy, heavy duty, open-weave fabric. Lightweight and see-through
Care: Coated mesh fabric is dirt- and moisture-resistant and can be washed in a sink, basin, or bathtub using soap and water, or hosed off on a patio. A front loading washing machine may be used, but should not be necessary. Do not use a top loading washing machine with an agitator, as the basket may get caught on the agitator
Stands upright without a rigid frame, supported by the heavy fabric and edge binding and the basket contents. Doesn't use the awkward automatic spring pop-up frame
Sewn-in fabric partition organizes contents
Easy-grip handles allow one or two handed carry
Comes in three colors (black, teal green and royal blue)
Can be used for laundry, toys, books, camping, recyclables, car trunks and more
Anyone who has tried navigating stairs and narrow hallways carrying a full laundry basket knows how unwieldy the hard plastic baskets can be. Tom Goth, a plastics expert and father of two, decided to do something about it after tripping too many times and cracking too many laundry baskets. His invention is called the BetterBasket.
The BetterBasket is great for laundry, toys, sports equipment, recycling items and whatever else you need to tote or store. It’s made from a woven mesh fabric that’s intentionally see-through so you can watch where you’re walking (fewer stubbed toes). We really like that it’s flexible, but not flimsy. The fabric and binding are sturdy enough to keep it upright when you’ve got a few items in it. Another useful feature is the built-in partition for separating items. The 27-inch basket has three compartments, and the 20-inch basket has two compartments.
Four sturdy straps allow for one-handed carrying, so you can tote your stuff and grab a handrail or hold a child’s hand at the same time. And when you’re not using it, the BetterBasket folds flat for easy storage. But we’re guessing you won’t be putting it away very often.
