Mississippi Patent of the Month – March 2023
Whitmor, Inc. has been bringing organization home for over 75 years. Spanning four family generations, the company has never lost passion for order and simplifying life. Afterall, an organized home is an enjoyable home.
The company has recently designed and patented their own laundry system which aims to make the arduous task as simple as possible. One of the main advantages of this invention is the ability to sort laundry with ease. With at least three removable bags that rest on a frame, you can easily separate your clothes by color, wash load temperature, or type of clothing. This makes the task of doing laundry much more efficient, as you can simply grab the bag you need and head to the washing machine.
In addition, the bags themselves are constructed with convenience in mind. They include left and right pockets and corresponding left and right handles, which allow for easy access and transport. And if you’re worried about support for the bags, fear not – the pocket supports are saddle-shaped with front and rear ridges, which provide ample support without obstructing the handles.
The Whitmor Laundry Hamper has built-in versatility, able to accommodate 2, 3, 4, 5, or more bags, depending on your needs. And if you’re short on space, the hamper can be equipped with wheels for easy maneuvering and storage.
But perhaps the best part of the Whitmor Laundry Hamper is the simplicity of its design. The bags are made from flexible fabric material, and are optionally frameless, meaning they are constructed without internal support. This allows for easy removal and cleaning of the bags, and also makes the hamper more lightweight and portable.
