How do you carry your laundry to the coin laundry?

I do not have the luxury of a car or my own washer and dryer. The coin laundry is just 2 blocks away. So I walk there weekly. I carry it with a "garbage" bag since using the laundry basket will collect dust and emission. I have been looking for an alternative since carrying a garbage bag of clothes looks silly. Also because sometimes it tears. For those in a simular situation, how do you carry your laundry?

I now fill up the basket and walk downstairs. When I went to a laundromat, I used an army surplus duffel bag.

As middie suggested, a wire shopping cart with wheels. OR how about a wheeled cooler. You can put your clothes in a bag to put in it. Then you'll have a cooler when you need it. Also, you can sit on it if the laundromat is crowded.

Have you seen those cool laundry baskets that fold flat? They have wire around the outside and fabric sides. They would be the perfect thing IMO.

moving laundry

Why don't you look at a second hand store for a childs wagon? I used to have one that had belonged to my grandson, and it was handy for all sorts of things.

Pillowcases would also work for transporting your laundry to and from the laundromat. My question to you, however, is, really now, exactly how much dust and emmisions can be absorbed by your laundry during a two block walk anyhow?

Yes! The flat bottom allows you to keep clean and folded things relatively wrinkle-free, as well.
