I love this laundry basket if it's possible to love a laundry basket! I am a small person and I have had back surgery, so I don't put it on my hip because I'm not strong enough to carry it with one arm, but with the hip indention it fits across my abdomen without digging in. The plastic is sturdy so it doesn't squish down and break like I've had some baskets do. Since I'm short, when I'm carrying the empty basket back to the cabinet, the handle on the opposite side of the indention comes in handy and doesn't make it awkward.

LASTED 17 YEARS! Hope they didn't cheapen 'em now!

By LaundryFairy

from New Jersey

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

My handles JUST broke & I've had this exact Rubbermaid laundry basket since I got married...17 years ago! (The darn thing could have it's driver's license by now, hehe:) ~Seriously though, it looks brand-spanking new otherwise! Hoping to have the same luck with the next one. Just wish they offered better colors (the one I have is a pearlized blue---usually hate the color blue, but this is pretty nice & doesn't look cheap). I've read reviews on the imitation "Rubbermaids" & they apparently have sharp edges & are cheap flimsy junk. - Soooo, another Rubbermaid it is! (Never once got cut on it, nor did it snag any clothes).

I love this basket!

By Beth65

from DC, United States

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

I have 3 different Rubbermaid baskets and this is my favourite. It's sturdy construction allows me to carry it with one hand while opening doors or turning on lights. This is a case of bigger is not always better. I fit through doors with this basket. The large version makes doorways a struggle.

Like but handle breaks

By Harp

from San Diego, CA, United States

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

This is my second one.  First one broke at middle handle.  Now, this one is also failing.  RM needs to strengthen at this point.  Don't know if I'll try a third.  Would like to hear from RM if they are doing anything to solve this problem.  Other than that, I like basket very much.

THE RUBBERMAID HIP HUGGER LAUNDRY BASKET

By Foxy1

from ONTARIO CANADA

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

ACTUALLY, I THOUGHT THIS LOOKED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AS I HAVE TO WALK FROM MY BASEMENT UP A LONG FLIGHT OF STEPS AND THEN THROUGH A COUPLE OF ROOMS TO MY OUTSIDE DOOR WHERE I HANG MY CLOTHES IN THE BACK YARD. I COULD FEEL THE EASE OF CARRYING IT BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT, I AM ON MY THIRD BASKET AS THE HANDLES BREAK VERY VERY EASY AND THEN THE HARD PLASTIC IS CUTTING MY HANDS ALL UP AND THE BASKET IS SLIPPING AND SCRATCHING ME EVERYWHERE AND IT HURTS SO I AM ACTUALLY TIRED OF WASTING MY MONEY ON THESE CHEAP PLASTIC BASKETS. I HAVE TWO WITH BROKEN HANDLES AS I SPEAK AND I AM ON MY THIRD BASKET. I KNOW THAT I WILL NOT PURCHASE ANYMORE OF THESE UNLESS THEY ARE BUILT BETTER THAN THEY ARE. LAUNDRY DAY IS ONE OF MY ENJOYMENTS AS I LOVE HANGING OUT MY LAUNDRY WITH PRIDE BUT NOW IT IS A PAIN AND I MEAN THAT LITERALLY.

When I had 3 children at home these laundry baskets got a work out. They still look good today whenever I spy them at my daughter's home as they went to college with them and now are being used for a new generation.

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

I love this newly shaped, hip hugging, laundry basket. It's wonderful that they designed it with three handles...for multiple carrying options. Durable, pretty, and practical. Thanks, Rubbermaid!

the hip hugger wash basket has a great feature:

By goatmom

from Lebanon,PA

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

This basket makes it easy for an older person to carry a basket of wet wash up the steps. It is convenient to carry past obstructions in the path to the wash line. The chances of falling while using this basket are lowered since one can carry the load at the correct level with correct body position.

Lasted 13 years

By Clemmensen2007

from Overland Park, KS

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

I find that good money spent, lasted 13 years til the handle broke. I still use it though because its not horrible. Will be buying another. I have bought these for baby showers and bridal to use as a basket to put stuff in since I love them so much.

not durable at all

By All2

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

I bought this laundry basket just a few months ago - and already all the handles are broken leaving sharp points. Also - once the handles break - the basket is completely unstable and collapses whenever you try to lift it - which makes it pretty much impossible to use. Very poor quality.

Design flaw: handles crack

By bnes

from Berkeley, CA

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

Great basked, I love how it slides under the front loader doors for easy loading, and snuggles up to my hip. But, it cracks. Each of our handles in turn have cracked in the same place. The materials are good, but there is a design flaw.

Perfect Hug

By oreolink

from Plantation,FL

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

I love this laundry basket. It truly does hug your side so you only need 1 hand to hold it. It curves right against your side and just snuggles in there. I will never buy any other kind of laundry basket again.

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

Not expecting much from a laundry basket... think about it! Unfortunately, this unit cracked at the handle within 2 weeks of purchase... now doesn't support much weight and appears that it'll fall apart shortly... not what I expect from Rubbermaid.

Great basket

By jammer

This basket is great. I have small hips, so it's not the most comfortable, but works well. The hip ridge makes it a lot easier to carry.

Best Purchase

By Miss

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

This is a very good product because of the contour of the basket. You can carry it comfortably on your hip without spilling your clothes on the floor. It's an awesome, must have basket for laundry.

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

I prefer this basket design as it is easier for me to carry a basket of clothes from room to room when balanced on the hip. I can maneuver around tight corners easier.

LOVE IT!!

By shirleyujest

from western NY

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

This laundry basket is the sturdiest laundry basket I have ever owned. It holds large, heavy loads easily without buckling.My washer and dryer are in my basement so it's important to me to have a basket thats comfortable and easy to handle and this basket is both.I've also used it when re-organizing my bookshelves, because it holds so much! It's so sturdy that my toddler nieces have climbed into it and been pushed around the house "choo-choo train"style!! I absolutely love this laundry basket!

Disppointed

By Peanit

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rubbermaid® Laundry Basket (2997-87) - 6 Pack:

I love the design of this laundry basket and the fact that it holds large loads with ease. One of the handles on mine broke, however, making it of no use. The basket was less than a year old. I wonder if this is due to the lack of flexibility of the plastic it's made with. I have never had an issue with Rubbermaid products, so I am disappointed with the performance of this one.
