    We take turns doing the laundry.  In no particular order so some weeks I do the laundry more them him.  Others (like right now) he does the laundry more than I do.  It’s no big deal to us.  I tend to hang them up and fold them more them him (our least favorite chore) but life goes on.

    We both do laundry. We trade off. (You need an option for that in your poll 😉 )

    I send my laundry out, and he does his at the laundromat. If we someday have a washer and dryer, we may change our system, but for now, we keep things separate. It’s hard enough to stay organized in a small space, i really need my clothes to be apart from his clothes. I am also a little weird about dirty laundry and don’t know if I would be comfortable with someone else doing mine (except Jenny at the wash and fold on my block ironically!).

    I used to do both of our laundry.  I work full time, go to school, clean the house every week, do my own laundry, study/homework, etc.  This would really screw me up for doing our combined 4 loads of laundry (including blankets/sheets/towels), and SO would get frusterated that I was worn out and didn’t want to do any more laundry.  So we began doing our own.  At first, I felt hurt that he didn’t allow me to take care of it for him.  Now I LOVE it, because I clean the house before he gets home (I work a 6 A.M. to 3 P.M.) shift, it helps me out a whooooole lot.

    I wash my work clothes and the house laundry from the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, etc., which means 2 loads per week for me.  DH does three loads of laundry every week. . .all of his clothes!  It takes such a huge burden from me.  So I’m glad we ended up doing it this way. 😀

    We both do both our laundry, myself mainly as he works 6 days a week so I like getting it done on Saturday so we have his only day off free, however I have started to notice when he does the washing he has only been washing his work clothes and not mine. I have pulled him up on this but.

    I do most of our laundry, but my husband does it sometimes. He works full time and right now I’m a student working part time so I have more time for it. When he does the laundry he definitely washes both of our clothes though, and he’ll often participate in some step (switching to the dryer, especially folding and putting away) even when I’m the ring leader. He also never complains because he appreciates me doing the laundry (and thanks me for it regularly). It doesn’t seem fair at all for your husband to not contribute and then complain about your hard work!

    Right now I’m doing his because he’s on 6x10s, but normally we do our own. I do everything else, so it’s a matter of principle that I refuse to do his laundry on top of everything else.

    My DH does both of our laundry about 90% of the time.

    I do almost all the laundry, but he does almost all the cooking. I’d rather do laundry than cook, and we’re both better at our respective jobs. We split most things evenly, though he works more hours and makes more money.

    I selected other – we both do the laundry, it’s just whoever is around when it needs to be done, and we do whoever’s laundry is there to be done.

    I voted other, since we do our laundry together.

    Other – we send our laundry out to be done.

    That’s not as fancy as it sounds, a lot of people in NYC do it. I don’t have a washer/dryer. There’s a place for one but I am loathe to give up my extra closet.

    If we had a washer/dryer, I would do it. We split chores pretty well, but he is terrible at folding clothes. I could probably get him to load and press start properly though.

    Before he moved in with me he did all his own laundry, so I do know that he is capable!

    We both do it now but he has elected to make it his job from now on as we both know it’s my most hated household chore.

    I do my laundry and he does his own. We share other things like our baby’s clothes and towels, linens etc. Whoever gets a free minute will take care of that so somehow it always manages to get done.

    we both do both of our laundry, but he definitely does more of it than I do. Being on the farm we go through a lot of clothes and he has less clothes than I do so he finds himself doing a load everyday and then will throw my random stuff in with it. If he is out working all day sat and sun and I am home then I will throw in a few loads with both of our clothes in them.

    He was married before and he was working full time, working on the farm AND doing ALL the housework. We both feel like we hit the motherload- he can’t believe someone is willing to do all the cleaning (I love a clean house and cooking dinner so I do it) and I can’t believe I found a man who will do my laundry AND fold it AND put it away for me! (I HATE LAUNDRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!).
