    He usually washes and puts away his own laundry… unless he has a baseball game and forgot to wash his baseball clothes.. then i will wash a load for him and have his baseball clothes ready for when he gets out of work 🙂

    Fiance does all the laundry. We live in teacher housing and have no washer/dryer connections in our apartment. They do have a few washers and dryers accross the street in the other area of apartments for everyone in the apartments so Fiance goes there. I can’t wait until we get our own home so that I can do a few loads of clothes while I clean or something since I’m a Stay-At-Home Mom instead of having the clothes pile up.

    My man is brilliant, he does the washing quite a lot and all the hoovering because I have some mobility issues that makes it quite difficult.

    Mixed.  It’s a task we share.

    At the moment, we have a lady who does our laundry (it’s weird to me, but it’s the norm here and included in my crazy high rent). However, the whole rest of the time we’ve been together, Darling Husband and I have always mixed our laundry together and separated by color/type. So my jeans get washed with his, etc. He did laundry often as well. It really just depends on who has more time (when I was only working part time, for example, I did most of it and vice versa).

    This might sound sick, but I used to fantasize about doing his laundry. We aren’t married yet, nre live together, but I have done his laundry before, and I loved it. I loved folding his clothes perfectly. I loved it all.

    I realize that is totally weird. lol

    He i really awesome and will be helping me with the chores of the house. I know this to be true as we lived together for a month recently (we have a long distance relationship). There are things I hate to do that he doesn’t mind. I hate cleaning the bathroom. It just grosses me out. I do it, often, and compulsively. But I hate it. So he will take over that chore. Overall though, we liked cleaning together.

    Maybe that feeling will change once we have lived under the same roof for a while though. I sure hope it doesn’t.

    i do most of the washing for all of us (12 year old daughter) and they might do one or two loads during the week. they help fold it when they see me doing it but otherwise i do most of it. i dont mind as it means that my clothes dont get washed with towels!!!

    my man does cook more and he does dishes so it works pout pretty even.

    No.  We have two different hampers.  He sometimes did mine, but I put whatever in my hamper because I know which things can go into a machine and which things must be taken out and washed by hand.  When he washed my only cashmere sweater in the washing machine, I asked him to stop washing my clothes, so now we each do our own.  If for whatever reason one person’s clothes end up in the other hamper, they’ll get washed with the other person’s  clothes.

    We’re completely separate because he’s a bit pickier about the laundry than I am. 🙂 All my clothes are colored/basic instructions (except the white socks) so I just run a load when the basket is full. I don’t mind if my socks turn a little pink, I only wear them on the weekends, but he’d kill me if I mixed his white work shirts with anything.

    I voted “sometimes”, because as it stands right now we’re LDR and I do the sheets that we share, LOL.

    After we’re living together, he has already claimed laundry as “his” chore, because he wants it done multiple times a week & I told him I’d do it once max. So I will probably occasionally chip in, but HE will be doing MY laundry because it’ll all be mixed together. : )

    Yeah, I wash my clothes with his, we mix our’s together and I wash everything. I do this because I do not have a job and cannot contribute financially, so I do contribute in other ways such as laundry. 

    There is nothing wrong with asking for help though, I say if you are feeling overwhelmed set up a laundry schedule where you two switch off and on. Share the load so to speak.

    Our washing all goes into one basket, so it’d be silly to separate it. We share the washing and whoever thinks to do it first on the weekend chucks it in the machine. We also share hanging it out, but I bring it in off the line, fold and put it away. I do comment to him sometimes that he has twice as much as I do (because he rides a pushbike to work and then changes into his suit) but it doesn’t really bother me.

    I hate ironing and don’t iron any of my clothes, but my Fiance irons his own business shirts and has never asked me to do it (which , for the record, I would do if he asked).

    I totally hear everyone saying their guys don’t check tags for washing instructions. Although he still doesn’t read the tags, my Fiance tends to check just about all of my clothes with me before he puts them in the machine, which is pretty cute! I have lost a few nice jumpers along the way though!

    I do it all, mostly because he’s the typical guy that doesn’t care what goes in with what. Drives me nuts that he’ll put white towels or jeans in with black shirts. UGH, move over I’ll do the laundry! I think I’ve raged enough about it that if he does start laundry without me he’ll not wash anything of mine. Fine by me!
