    We don’t currently live together, but he’s really picky about his laundry. I’m not even allowed to fold it. He’ll probably end up doing at least his, if not all of it.

    Yep, I do all the laundry in our house. I find doing laundry oddly soothing to my neurotic, slightly compulsive personality. 

    Husband tried once to do it. Bless his heart. He almost ruined a ton of my clothes but thankfully, he was intercepted just in time. Now he knows to just step away from the washing machine.

    @jadlnc:  My FI does his laundry and I do my laundry. I usually do the towels, sheets, etc, but it just depends. If he has a few days off in a row, he will wash all the clothes, clean the house and cook 🙂

    My friend’s husband doesn’t do his own laundry and essentially refuses to. She mildly resents him for it. I don’t think it’s fair, but they are making it work I guess.

    DH and I both take turns doing laundry, and its not separate.  We throw everything together.

    Our laundry is separated into categories. My landry room is in the basement so DH will usually trek up amd downstairs and I will organize what needs to go down and put away whay comes up. Except for his stuff…he likes to fold and hang and organize in a particular way (as do I).

    I wash all the laundry. The only time my DH does laundry is when I call and ask him to throw a load of his work clothes in the washer if I am running late or something. That’s the extent of it though.

    I always do the laundry but it’s something I really enjoy doing.

    We each do our own.  I usually do the towels and sheets, but that’s because I have more time than he does.

    We share the responsibility of doing laundry.  If he needs something washed, he’s totally capable of doing it.

    We both do laundry. I mainly do mine, and he mainly does his, but sometimes we’ll throw a few of the other’s things in too.

    We do a bit of each others! He’s home a lot more because he can work from home, so it’s easier for him to just stick a load in, and when I’m doing Laundry it’s usually a blitz day so I’ll get as much in as I can.

    There are some things of mine he won’t do (delicates, expensive dresses etc), which I’m 100% fine with (he is not a believer in separating colours – although I’ve just about got him trained to at least separate darks and whites, and he’s been a bit more conscientious since he turned one of his t-shirts pink)

    He does all the laundry. I work overnight shift and am not awake during the hours that our apartment’s laundry rooms are open.

    I need a “little bit of everything” category. Sometimes I do his, sometimes he does mine, we just do whatever needs to be done and don’t keep tabs.
