    Definately his and hers. His stuff gets so much dirtier than mine and mine is also much more delicate. I don’t want to chance getting grease and/or grime on my stuff. I also wash our stuff separately from each others.

    We put all of our laundry in the same basket. FI’s is super clean so no worries about grease and grime! We just separate darks and lights when it comes time to do loads of laundry.

    It all goes in the same basket.  Dirty clothes are dirty clothes.

    All in one. The only time I wouldn’t want his clothes to touch mine is when he’s been to the gym (yuck!) but then he always just puts his stuff straight into the machine anyway.

    My FI’s job is very labor intensive and he gets dirty whether he wants to or not, so that is why I said that. He cleans up pretty good, but sometimes there is stuff on his clothes that I do not want near my stuff.

    We put it all in one…or two if we’ve been lazy! Even if Fiance was dirty and grimy, it pretty much doesn’t bother me. When it’s really bad I make him strip and just run a load right then so that no stains set in.

    His and Hers. He works on cars a lot and is a firefighter so if his clothes aren’t covered in grease, they smell like smoke. And you cannot, no matter how you try, get the smell out. He even has two baskets to separate his smoky/greasy clothes from his other stuff.

    All together, and then when we fold, he’s constantly trying to take my black dress socks cause his all have HOLES in the toe!

    we have three baskets – whites, darks and colored/in between (which gets divided later because it definitely fills up the fastest).

    EDIT: I voted for the one basket, even though we have three, because we do mix our laundry, and that seems to be more your point. 🙂

    All together for us… there’s no real reason for us to separate it!

    we have separate baskets!!

    the only difference with us is that after i do laundry i fold and put my clothes away. (like in drawers)  He does laundry, puts it back in his “clean laundry” basket and lives out of it for 2 weeks until we do laundry again. He doesn’t put anything in a dresser or anything. drives me nuts.

    He also doesn’t like to mix our clothes!! hes so weird sometimes. owell.

    We have one shared basket. But man, my husband produces so much more dirty laundry than I do! We go out dancing a lot and he usually sweats up a storm whereas I tend to stay cooler so my clothes stay fresher longer. So that basket is always brimming.
