Ever since my husband shrunk a beautiful cashmere sweater of mine when we were dating, he has been forbidden to do my laundry. He does his own on occasion and even after turning his briefs pink, still refuses to sort the colors from the whites, lights from darks.

I wash & dry, she folds and puts away.

@woothulhu: I am sad this was not the first reply. (also related to question: I do my own laundry)

My girlfriend does my laundry.

@lavikinga: That's the oldest trick in the book - you got suckered.

(haven't had to do Mrs. durkzilla's laundry for 17 years since I shrunk her favorite sweater).

My answer: I do my own laundry. Dress clothes go to the cleaner cause I hate ironing.

vote-for4vote-against

Unfortunately, me.

It's not that bad, I would just rather do something else.

vote-for3vote-against

Me. I live alone.
Even when I lived at home I did my own laundry.

@durkzilla: Dammit! I've been hornswoggled!

I hate ironing too. All of his shirts he like with heavy "starchy-starchy" go to the cleaners. I shouldn't say I hate it. I'm just not great at it. Used to love to iron when I was a kid. Now I usually burn myself. Burned my belly when I was pregnant just to give you an idea of my mad i-ronning skilz.
My husband is pretty darned great around the house. He hates yard work. I LIKE it, so it works.

She sorts colors and weights, I wash and dry, when I switch over from washer to dryer I remove all of her shirts/sweaters so she can tell me if they get line dried or machine dried. I have implemented this system because she has rushed through the switch over and missed some her items that should have been hung up and gets very sad later, also it lets her stay out of the dark and wet basement.

All my work shirts get sent to the cleaners for I am lazy and lack an ironing board

The washing machine, and the dryer.

the wife and I share the responsibility, working on passing it on to the older kids though

vote-for6vote-against

I do my own, my wife does her own. And that's the way it's been since our second date, when she came over to my place to use my washing machine.

Both of my kids from age six were taught they had to bring their dirty clothes down to the washing machine (my wife or I would run the washer) but they had to put it in the dryer, remove it and fold/hang everything themselves. From age nine or so they ran the washer themselves as well. So the kids have never been able to complain to us that they had nothing to wear, since it was all their responsibility.

The moral of the story is: The fewer things there are to fight over, the happier you will be.

I do laundry and windows. I can cook too. Heck, I can even iron.

vote-for5vote-against

I don't know, probably some impoverished minor at the cleaners. They do good work though.

vote-for5vote-against

I do mine for the important items (Woot! and Ript shirts) and, since I still live at home, the rest gets thrown into the communal clothes hamper that gets washed by the first person in the house to cave in and do it.

vote-for3vote-against

I use a Fluff and Fold that picks up and delivers for free. Too bad they don't put the clean clothes away when they bring them back.

I do most of the laundry, but my fiance does most of the dishes. She never really did laundry, and the first weekend we moved in, she was about to wash a pair of my nice work pants in a load of whites with bleach! That was the end of that. When she does do laundry, it is mostly towels or tshirts.

vote-for4vote-against

Me. I've done my laundry since I was 10 so I must say I'm pretty damn good at it. I see no reason to change things now. 15 years and I still can't roll my socks into a ball, though. ...and old women still chuckle at my shirt folding at the laundromat and insist on showing me how to do it properly... Ok maybe I'm not that good at it after all? Damn. :(

The hag I married. Oh crap, I think she heard me!

@inkycatz: Haha! Top answer is ALMOST as good. Honestly though about 7 minutes after I posted, the thought that someone would say this came to mind. :)

I wash and dry. I let my youngest daughter fold and put away.

vote-for5vote-against

back in the good old days when it was just me i used a service at a laundromat..it was awesome! now, it's me...BUT...i get out of ironing by throwing whatever it is in the dryer and turning on high for 10 mins - that's MY kinda ironing!!

vote-for4vote-against

@gretchena: Haha! That's my kind of ironing, too. Add a damp towel and ask my husband if he needs anything "ironed" while I'm at it :)

vote-for3vote-against

I do. I'm a house pet, it's the least I can do for the man who keeps me in my woot shirts.

vote-for2vote-against

Me. I can even iron if pushed, though I prefer sewing to ironing. (I should state that I mostly live alone... daughters a few times a week, though now the older one is away at college).
