Top ten reasons my husband shouldn't do laundry

1. He doesn't sort (he keeps all colours together, whites and blacks included)
2. He never remembers to put the wash into the dryer (he rewashes everything at least 2 times...ugh). Some of our towels smell like mildew
3. He puts towels with clothing
4. He doesn't fold
5. He waits until he has at least 5 loads
6. Everytime I go to use the dryer there is a load in there. Either half dry or needing to be folded
7. He puts everything in the dryer (wool and suede included)
8. He acts like he should get a hero biscuit for even attempting it
9. He uses the last of the detergent and never lets me know
10. He throws it on the floor in the bedroom  instead of putting it away

  1. I hear ya!! Mine just avoids the laundry at all costs! For those moldy smelling towels just throw a little vinegar in with the soap next time you wash them and they'll be as good as new!

    1. Awesome,thanks for the suggestion. I have been having him use them as his hockey towels.
      Grrr.....I wonder if he does all of this just so I will do his laundry. I actually would prefer to do it but it makes me so mad that he can't even put it away when I leave it folded on the bed.

  2. Yep!!! If my husband puts stuff in the wash and turns it on, he's good. Yay me, I did laundry! Um yeah buddy. That's not the hard part. If you take laundry out of the dryer, fold it and put it away, I will be very impressed! Hasn't happened in 9 years...

  3. haha great list.... my husband doesn't do ANY laundry so I don't have these problems but I am sure I would!! To be fair, he actually does bring the clothes in off the line once in a while and does a good job of that so we'll stick to that routine! :)

    1. I wish my husband would stay away from the laundry room! The thing is because he doesn't put his clean stuff away, it gets mixed with the dirty stuff so when I go to do laundry I don't know what needs to be washed!

  4. This made me laugh -- my guess is it is purposeful! My husband throws everything together in one load too ... and has finally just conceded to my doing it!

  5. I swear, my hubby will do laundry and EVERYTHING of mine shrinks. Also, I end up missing socks all the time. I love the help, but hate the extra work it sometimes makes! Lol

    1. Yes, I get the shrinking thing, hubby put my favorite Lacoste sweater in the dryer. It came out the size of doll clothing!

  6. Mine throws it all on one pile and would be okay never folding it! I'm sorry but a pile of clothes stacked in our living room waiting to be folded drives me NUTS! So it never fails...I always end up folding them!!! ( and putting them away) Sigh! Funny post!!!

    1. My husband is untrainable. Actually he does the cooking so at least he does something!
