    Funny, Underwear doesn’t turn green for me until AFTER I wash it……Thats why the wife doesn’t let me near the washer anymore.

    Colours and whites should be washed seperately, Doctor. And getting it wrong once is no excuse for ducking out on chores. Hop to it!!

    Maybe Doc is using the “feigned incompetence” strategy. If you’re so bad at doing something your spouse won’t let you do it, then you’ve gotten out of doing it!

    Maybe, but that is an old and lame strategy. J_Verschueren has it right… learn how to do it right and help out!

    Women make laundry so complicated.

    Everything goes in to the washing machine together., pour in the Tide, set the dial to ‘cold’ and start! Simple,easy, and no time spent sorting. I’ve never felt the need . I goofed once when I had a red shop towel in the mix. It was new and I thought it was color-fast like others that I’ve had. It wasn’t and I had pink underwear for a while. Eventually washed out

    I taught my kids on how to wash when they were younger. My daughter had a friend who at a much younger age started helping around the house mostly her stuff and making her own lunch.
    I always wash whitesseparatelyy can use Clorox.

    Everything in my regular rotation is black, so I never have to worry about sorting my laundry…

    Laundry – a necessary chore that I hate doing! Good thing it only needs to be done once or twice a week!

    My sister used that strategy years ago. In her defense she was a single mother trying to work full time and still keep up with a household. Her then boyfriend took on the laundry duties for her, her son and himself to ensure that they had clean clothes and also to ensure that his tighty whiteys stayed both tighty and whitey. The division of labor has worked well all of these years.

    I had surgery last spring on my knee. My boys, ages 5, 7, 9 all learned to do their own laundry and continue to do so now that I’m walking again. (5yo needs help, of course). The clothes don’t get sorted, and everything gets washed on “cold” or “warm” – but we’ve never had an issue with pink underwear – and their school uniforms are red polos.
    BEST thing that we ever did. LOVE having self-sufficient children!!
