Quirky Unhampered collapsible laundry basket review

I’ve discussed how little space you have in the recycling due to baby packaging before, but all the stuff that was packaged is now taking up the valuable space that used to be yours. Babies make shitty roommates. It’s time to save some space, and the Quirky Unhampered laundry basket can save you a couple of cubic feet of storage space per Unhampered when it’s not in use.

Unhampered overview

The Quirky Unhampered is a collapsible laundry basket that lays and stores flat out of the way when it’s not in use. It features pockets to carry fabric softener, detergent, or wallet/keys if you’re headed to the laundromat.

There’s also a divider that lets you keep loads separated, although I don’t particularly find this feature all that useful.

My first use of the unhampered came a couple of days ago when I had three loads of laundry downstairs and Baby M had decided to create another load when she so graciously decided to return some of the formula I had been feeding her on the bed.

Well, more to the point is even though I was following fluid containment protocol, my little milk militant decided to grab the moisture-resistant towel she was on, use it to roll slightly and projectile vomit explosively onto my sheets.

It is ever so slightly smaller than my normal baskets, but it makes up for that with the ability to bump into things  and have it collapse inward a bit. When you’re having to maneuver through a crowded hallway, or down stairs, being able to squish the laundry basket against the wall is pretty useful.

Unfolding and folding can be done in about five seconds, so it’s not an ordeal to store away.

The material feels high quality, durable, and it’s pretty much everything I can think of that a collapsible laundry basket needs to be, and in a pinch it’s enough of a board when collapsed you can put a portable changing mat on it.
