Plarn Laundry Caddy
"Anyone who has ever lived in an apartment or other place that has no in-unit laundry can attest that lugging a full hamper to the laundry room/laundromat while juggling the detergent bottle and other things like coins and dryer sheets is a royal pain. This little Plarn Laundry Caddy is the perfect solution to your problems. It will give you a designated space perfect for a 40-60oz detergent bottle, as well as a bit of extra room to slip in your coin pouch or dryer sheets, all without taking up space in your hamper."
