    He does all of the laundry. Yep, I’m a lucky duck 🙂

    Yes, I do it. It’s easier to wash them together and I am super picky about how mine are washed and hang dry most things, so it is better for us if I just do it all.

    Part of the reason I do my own is because I’m allergic to detergent and I have to use the unscented stuff. He hates it. Plus he washes his work clothes a certain way and the same goes for me. I don’t need him shrinking my pants!

    Laundry is a team sport in our house, although I do all of the folding.  We’re both capable of doing laundry on our own if the other person isn’t around, but it’s just so much more enjoyable to have company!

    I do all the laundry including my husbands. If I didnt do it…it would never get done then he would complain to me about having no clothes to wear  lol

    @MrsPaulsBabyBallerina:  Same here. I’ve got “systems” so far as washing is concerned and I’m picky about how my clothes are washed so while Darling Husband is 100% capable around the house and doesn’t expect me to be any sort of domestic handmaiden, I’d much prefer he stayed well away from the laundry.

    I didnt vote bc we both do all of it whenever it the hamper is full and we have a minute.  Sometimes he will put it in the washer and i will notice and put it in the dryer and we will fold it watching TV.


    But we are really laid back about our clothes – everything goes in the dryer – everything but towels are washed on cold…. our clothes are probably super dirty bc we dont wash anything properly but – ehh it smells ok.

    I do all the laundry (and picking up of strewn clothes, and putting away of clean clothes, etc).  

    BUT, he does about 95% of the cooking AND cleans the kitchen, so I am definitely not complaining.

    I’m usually the one to do the laundry, but he helps sometimes if I need it.  I’m kind of picky about how to wash certain items, so it just works out better that way.  We share in chores equally, but we each kind of take charge of certain chores around the house.

    I do all of the laundry. I’m not working right now, but I am going to school, so I’m home a lot more than he is. 

    I cook and clean, and he takes the trash out and waters the grass. 

    It all works out pretty nicely.

    He’s working from home today, so when I get back all the washing will have been done. Bliss!

    Fi and I both do laundry! It depends whose home, most of the time he will wash and dry and I will fold and hang. If I don’t I will find my clothes inside out!

    We do our laundry together. We do darks and lights separately.. but his and my stuff in the same wash load.

    Depending on who is home and whatnot determines who does the laundry. We sometimes take turns, and we sometimes end up sharing the job (we hang most of our clothes, so we’ll hang it up together to finish faster).

    None of the options apply for us. We share the laundry responsibilities. Typically, whoever needs underwear or a specific article of clothing will run a load.
