I purchased two of these when I moved from a home with a large laundry room to a home with a tiny laundry room. I keep one in my master bath and one in the master bedroom. I trained my family to sort directly into the correct bin; so, now I can see when a load is ready to take to the laundry room. I have been using them for a month, and the look new. We do take care of things in our home.
