I have never had gnats in my laundry, but I do have a problem in my kitchen in the warm weather, and also the light from my monitor attracts them at night. I make traps with small plastic cups, or jar lids. Pour a little cider vinegar into the receptacle, wrap securely with
plastic wrap, then use a toothpick to put several holes in the plastic wrap. Keep them small, but large enough for a gnat to get through.

You will definitely need to make traps to catch them. I have found out that apple cider vinegar is the best for this. You can use several different methods to trap them. I prefer to use a disposable plastic cup that I have cut in half. Fill the cup bottom half full with apple cider vinegar. Now use plastic wrap over the top of the cup and secures it in place with a rubber band.

Afterwards, poke tiny holes in the plastic wrap to attract them inside. Once the cup is full, you'll need to change out the apple cider vinegar or make a new cup.

Place several of these around the area of your clothes and in your laundry room. You can even sit them on top of your clothes if you're careful. Keep this up until you don't have any more in the cup.

You can also leave a few cups around the area just in case they come back.
