Brabantia: The Secret Life Of Laundry

Nobody enjoys laundry. Its one of those necessary evils, and one you really can’t ignore. It was a shock how much our dirty laundry increased when we had Little Man. Little Dude’s arrival earlier this month eclipsed that. Baby grows, vests, muslin cloths, and the odd piece of Mummy and Daddy’s clothing seems to get covered in milk every day, and there’s also the occasional wee incident to look forward to as well. The washing machine seems to be permanently on, and with the questionable weather we’re experiencing we are starting to run out of places to hang it too.

Brabantia have created this infographic full of fascinating – and often amusing – facts and figures about the laundry habits of people in the UK as well as across Europe. Do take a look, and at the bottom you’ll find a great little competition to win a great 50 litre laundry bin so your washing can at least look stylish!

Who knew laundry habits could differ so much!

Brabantia Sussex Mummy LaundryBrabantia recently sent me one of their brand new 50 litre laundry bins. They heard I was expecting a new baby and thought it might help. As well as having a great big capacity the bin is nice and slim meaning it fits neatly in Little Dude’s bedroom without taking up too much precious floor space. It has a “quick drop opening” so you can easily throw small items in without having to remove the lid – perfect for Little Dude’s tiny clothes – and when the time comes to do the laundry there is a removable bag inside which you can take out quickly and easily without having to carry the whole bin to your washing machine. The bin comes in white or steel colours, and we chose the white. For me the steel looks a little too like a kitchen bin, and I thought the white would go better in the nursery.

Now Brabantia has another of these laundry bins to giveaway to one lucky reader. You can choose either the white or the steel, and you have the choice of either the 50 litre bin or the 30 litre bin. To enter just follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter below, and GOOD LUCK!

The 50L laundry bin would be great for someone I know who is having a baby. I think it would be the best present she could hope for.

I would do the same as you, and go for the white!

Greetings from East Sussex! As a keen laundress, I enjoy having quality materials for ironing and laundry sortinig. Most young mothers would love a spacious and airy laundry room complete with washtub and for me a tiled floor. I won’t need a washing machine because we use The Breathing Mobile Washer. A wonderful portable washing machine which has kept our family of four clean and fresh for the past year. Its design sucks out dirt and pushed through fresh aerated water for an exceptional rinse which as yet cannot be matched by a washing machine. These Brabantia bins would be just right for my helpful toddler laundry helper – plus they are plus chic.
