What are the best ways to use this hamper?
Let's start with the obvious: laundry time. For most, washing clothes is a bit of a slight annoyance. And if you're like me, you just want to get in, get everything super clean & stain free and get on with your day. The best way to do that is organize. Have your detergent and stain remover handy. Your white clothes in a separate hamper from colors. Don't run out of fabric softener. You get the idea. And if your laundry area is as tight on room as mine, this rectangular wicker hamper will save you plenty of space tucked in the corner as it organizes your clothes.
Waste basket - if you already have a hamper and need a flexible trash container for your kitchen, den, study, etc, simply insert a 20-30 gallon trash bag and you're set. Being all-natural willow with waterproof paint, it'll withstand just about anything you can throw at it (or in :)
Toy storage - for those kids or families with a ton of toys, this basket gives you 2-3 times the storage capacity of a typical toy caddy or bin. Being naturally breathable, there's also never any concern with mildew or mold as you might get with plastic totes/bins.
What's involved in care and maintenance?
Since it's natural willow coated with waterproof, non-toxic paint, there's not much you need to do to keep it in tip-top shape. If the liner gets soiled or dirty, simply give it a quick wash (it's machine washable). For the hamper itself, a wipe down with water or a bit of soap is all you need. Let it air dry and it's good as new. If it ever gets seriously scratched or dented and the paint comes off, just give it a quick touch-up with any water-based paint or sealant.
