Here I will give you tips for putting together a Doing Laundry Themed Gift Basket for $30, and everything in it will be absolutely useful!
You can go with a traditional bag or one of these containers, and that would be fine. But the obvious container to put everything in is a laundry basket or hamper.
These Badger Basket Folding Hampers are adorable, too! But cost $22 each.
What to Put in the Basket
Mesh laundry bag
- This is great to keep those little socks from getting lost in the dryer!
- Most people swear by Dreft as the only detergent suitable to babies. But it isn’t. Check out my other blog posting about how “free” detergents (those free of dyes and perfumes) are just as good for baby: Do I really need to use Dreft? Choosing a detergent for baby’s clothes
Fabric softener and Dryer Sheets
- The same thing that applies for choosing detergent also applies. Just get the “Free” kind.
Stain remover pen
- I know I just got done harping about Dreft and how you don’t need it. But one way Dreft does come in handy is their pretreating pen. I love the brush/scrubber tip on it. It makes scrubbing out stains much quicker and less messy than the Tide pens. Those just fall apart.
