    I Don't Really Separate...

    I don't really separate or fold my laundry.  There is a "clean" pile by my bed and a dirty pile in the bathroom.  I just sort of turn the clean pile every couple days like compost to keep it fresh.

    Just Get It Over With

    I keep up with it - but only because my distaste for stinky clothes outweighs my distaste for laundry-ing.  Just throw it in and get out of there.  I usually end up all wrinkled because I hate going back to get it - but again, my distaste for walking around without...

    Not Practical For Me (or Logical)

    If I've got a massive amount of wash to do, I'll separate out the linens and let them have their own load.  Otherwise, I don't bother.  Aside from the whole not-wanting-to spend-energy-sorting thing, I've got some reasons to not sort.For one, I'm doing wash for one.  I can see...

    Whatever

    I don't have many clothes anyway, bc mostly I wear my work clothes... The stuff I have doesn't give out color, so I just throw everything in one set and wash. My clothes aren't any Armani or Gucci anyway, so it doesn't matter. Besides, it's a waste of electricity and water. I'm...

    Even After Pink Socks...

    I have been doing good lately though, after my girlfriend talked to me about it, I always seem to do things better and/or the right way once she mentions them. (Please keep being a good influence, honey<3) I've done like the last three weeks of laundry seperating it each time...

    Whites? Darks? (bet I Got Your Attention!!! :0)

    Who's got time? Cold water works fine too. Just don't overload.  Who can actually afford materials that will bleed into others anyway?

    My Money-saving Masterplan

    No i do not seperate my laundry. To be fair to myself, this is mainly because each wash and dry is one pound each and if i were to seperate meticulously into whites, lights and darks that would be four pounds out of my alcohol fund (including drying). So when I'm doing laundry...

    No Need to With Cold Water

    I never separate my darks/colors and whites. I just throw all of it in to the super capacity washer, use cold water and then I only have one load to deal with. Works just fine. Clothes are still clean LOL I only occasionally use hot water for a load of sheets/towels...
