How do I label laundry carts?

dawnm's picture

We're in the middle of renovating a laundry room and I've decided to buy 10 laundry baskets on wheels from Ikea. One for each colour load. I would like to label each basket with its corresponding colour load ie. White, Black, Grey, Red etc. The laundry bag is made of nylon. I want the label to be professional loolking in black letters.

Any suggestions?

No I don't think you can iron nylon.

But I've decided to use the T-shirt transfer paper, iron it on a piece of white medium weight fabric, maybe a twill, and use fabric glue to adhere it to the laundry basket. I would like to use a calligraphy font, just to add a feminine touch to the laundry room.

I'll post a pic when I'm finished.

Thank you for all your great ideas.

Thank you for your replies! :)

Jan in van, what kind of sheet labels, iron on? What about printing on white fabric and sewing them on. But how do I print on fabric? I could buy the t-shirt transfer papers and iron them on the piece of fabric, then sewing them to the laundry bag.

10 baskets is alot! One each for whites, white socks, pastels, greys, reds/brights, blue/browns, blacks, jeans, white towels, and gentle. This will make it easy for the family to place their dirty laundry and when it comes to doing laundry its all sorted. I just want to be able to roll the basket to the washing machine and stick it in. Simple. There are 5 in my family. Lots of laundry! Never ending task.

Presidents Choice makes a liquid laundry soap for cold water wash. I use it sometimes and it seems to work well, it smells nice and clean.
