Vertical PVC Laundry Sorter

Vertical PVC Laundry Sorting System
                       My son and I built this Vertical PVC Laundry Sorter with Sterlite bins together.   

He did the cutting and measuring while I pushed the pieces together. 

We sat down and pieced it together pretty quickly.
Materials List-
  • 4 lengths 1/2" PVC Pipe
  • 24 1/2" Ts
  • 4 1/2" Cross
  • 4 1/2" Elbows
  • 8 1/2" Caps
  • 4 58 quart Sterlite Containers
Measurements for Vertical PVC Laundry Sorting System

If you are concerned about a toddler pulling the while thing over consider anchoring it to the wall with a strap and grabber screw in the stud.
    So what do you think?


  1. Oooh... I like this a lot! Great job!!!

  3. Awesome. I have these exact bins that I use for sorting. In this house we have built in shelves in a closet that work for them near the bedrooms for easy access to where clothes are stripped. But I know we'll be moving soon and this will work perfect for our next stop! Thank you!!

  4. This is great! I'm going to make one this weekend that holds 5 bins. I'll be glad to reclaim my laundry room floor. Thanks for posting!

  5. Looks great ! I was looking at your list and it says 4 1/2 inch T's . I think I am missing something cause I counted 24 from the picture.

  6. This fantastic!! We made one today and love it!! I have an idea for this and want to talk with you privately. If you would not mind could you email me at We have been asked to build a few more of these but I want to speak with you first. Thanks

  7. I have to admit... I am squeamish about correspondence ever since I got a virus from someone who commented on my blog. They turned out to be someone malicious. :( I hate to hurt anyone's feeling when they are genuine. :(

  8. OMG!!! I've been thinking about doing the EXACT SAME THING!!!! Now I don't have to think about it. Thanks!!! :D

  9. This is really neat! I think it would be a great way to store recyclables until it's time to take them out to the curb. Those gallon jugs and cardboard boxes (even flattened ones) take up a lot of space!

  10. It is also a good idea to organize your dirty clothes by using a laundry sorter, that way your clothes will already be in their proper place when you need to do them.

  11. If you consistently have very little laundry in each basket I can see this working. But if you're like me and the baskets are more than half full, 1/2" PVC is not going to cut it. At least it didn't in my case. It falls apart *constantly.* So I am investing in a heap of gorilla glue and gluing it til heck won't have it. Otherwise it's a great idea! It's made my laundry process so much less painful!

    1. Hi Bearess, Luckily, I have not had trouble with mine coming apart, but I did struggle with the toy bin holder that I made for my boys. I ended up having to glue that with sprinkler glue. I don't like to have to glue because it dries fast and if things are not twisted right it ends up weird.
      I hope you can solve the issue you are having. :) Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Thank you for this. The only thing I added was was casters so it rolls. I also made mine shorter and put a light weight wood top so I could fold clothes. The top is removable and fits an ironing pad. It has stood the test of time for us.

  13. I loved the product. Easy to assemble and looks great. Perfect for my laundry. :D

  14. Love this idea..... I'm going to make a shoe rack from your idea. I've been trying to solve my shoe pile issue for awhile because store bought racks are just really overpriced

  15. I love this! My husband helped me by using the chop saw. Took less than an hour to make and assembled so easily! Thank you for sharing!
