We have a hamper in our bedroom (but it’s a nice looking one) for our clothes and a laundry basket in a closet for towels.  With the exception of sheets or a full load of towels, I do ALL LAUNDRY!!  I don’t trust him enough to know what to dry and what to hang.

We have a laundry basket in the bedroom right outside of the bathroom.  Everything goes in there.  I do all the laundry because then I don’t have to worry about him accidentally washing something in the wrong way or something.

we have a laundry basket in the bedroom and one in the laundry room. we put everything in those but obviously use the one in the bedroom more. I do all the laundry because i am faster. he knows how to do it but it is more efficient if i do.

We have the laundry basket in our bedroom. We usually do laundry together on weekend, however I sometimes do laundry alone on weekday if it’s full. I only wash what’s in the laundry basket. If it isn’t in there, it won’t be washed.

We each have our own laundry basket in our bedroom, and we each do our own laundry separately since we like our stuff folded differently.  I do the towels and sheets too.

We are responsible for our own laundry- he does his and I do mine.  We take turns washing towels and such.

I am the person who sorts all of her laundry by color, fabric type, etc. and does about 10 mini loads, including some handwashing.  He piles everything he has together (whites, colors, whatever) and bangs out 2-3 loads on Sundays.

When our baby arrives I have no idea what our laundry situation will turn into….to be continued 😉

We each do our own laundry since FI does his twice as often as I do (I hate doing laundry, more particularly, putting it away). I put mine in the hamper most of the time (or move it there when the pile in the bathroom builds up). His ends up on the floor. His mom got him a hamper last Christmas but it ended up becoming a laptop stand for when we hook the laptop up to the tv to watch movies Embarassed  Either one of us will do the sheets/towels as needed. Just whoever grabs them does them.

We have a laundry basket in our bedroom and one in our laundry room but our laundry room is off of the kitchen which is a good 5 rooms from our bedroom and bathrooms. Pretty much all of the laundry goes in the basket in the bedroom and I use the basket in the laundry room for clothes I dont feel like folding right away (sometimes a girls gotta be lazy!). I’m good about throwing my clothes in the laundry basket but FI’s NOT. I’ve lived with this for over 5 years now so picking up his laundry and putting it in the basket doesn’t really bother me but it would be nice if he would learn to do it!

As for doing the laundry, I do it all. On occasion I’ll ask him to switch a load if he’s up or I’m not home though, no matter how many times I show him what setting to put the dryer on, he never gets it right.

We have to walk our laundry to the laundry room so we do it together on Sundays.  We combine all of our stuff together to get good sized loads, usually 3 or 4 loads depending how many towels.  The laundry basket is in the bedroom, but both of us get lazy and sometimes leave clothes on the ground in the bathroom.  🙁

we have 3 laundry baskets in our closet: darks (or anything that gets washed on cold), lights (or anything i want washed on hot), and towels. I do all the laundry. Its just part of our negotiated household agreement (ex: I do all the laundry, shopping, and cooking… but I don’t have to do yard work like mow or shovel or take out trash.)

FH does have a habit of changing wherever in his apartment and leaving the clothes where they fall. Now that I’ve been spending more time there and doing my laundry there he has been better with picking them up. He keeps his “baskets” (rubbermaid storage bins) in the hallway outside the laundry closet and in his closet.

Right now we do our own, I just do my laundry at his places because the machines are in the actual apartment and my complex charges an arm and a leg. We will probably remain doing out own when married.

We have two laundry baskets – one in the bathroom, and one in the laundry room.  I do all the laundry though.

– Do you have laundry baskets in your bedroom?  Bathroom?  Laundry room (our laundry isn’t big enough for dirty laundry)? 

yes, i have a laundry basket in the bathroom but hubby never uses it, he puts his dirty clothes in the bathtub… which is right next to the laundry basket

he also likes to leave his dirty clothes in a pile outside the bathroom/in the hallway – but hes trained to put it in the laundry room every day or so

 

Do you do your own, and he does his? Do you do his for him? 

i do all chores in our home but take the garbage out and and clean his toilet

We have a laundry basket in the bedroom. I do all the laundry because he does all the dishes.
