Cool Idea: Ever-Open Laundry Bag

I spotted this neat trick on Martha Stewart and was once again impressed with all the clever things you can do with an embroidery hoop! Here, Martha has transformed a traditional, hanging, drawstring laundry bag into an ever-open one by tightening a large embroidery hoop at least 14" in diameter around it. This keeps the bag open so you don't have to wrangle with it, but still allows you to hang it, keeping it off of the floor and at eye level. This small change will make a tedious household task a bit more efficient. Personally, I use the Umbra Crunch Can as a hamper, which is inherently
always open, crunches for storage, and has handles to be hung or transported; but the key is to work with what you've got!

I love the idea, but I am not sure how consistent my husband will be when he can just throw it on the ground, like he normally does!

Neat! I'm lusting after the Umbra crush can in pink with the leaf graphic design.

My husband will love this. He refuses to close the lid on our laundry basket because it's "inefficient." :oy:

Nice suggestion kimpossible! I'll think I'll do that with my room soon as I find my old embroidery hoop (I do hope my mom hasn't gotten rid of that) and I clean it up XD.

This is the most wonderful idea I've ever heard. My laundry bag has been irritating me all week!

I bet you could use a pillowcase too instead of the laundry bag. But this is a great idea.
