Utility sinks don't fit into small laundry spaces. They are more common in large rooms or in basements. For laundering, people soak clothes in a utility sink and rinse off dirt and debris before putting clothes in the washing machine. People also wash paint, grass and stains from arms and hands in a laundry room utility sink.
