I Don't Get ....
.. how in a house where we all live
together, something as simple as
doing laundry can have so many
variations due to personal choice.
With so many kids in the house, laundry
was a big chore when they were small.
As they grew, I'd have them help out in
age appropriate ways. Sorting clothes was
one of the many steps in washing clothes
that I taught them. Or so I thought!
The first picture is how my daughter washes
her clothes each week. Yup, that's right. NOT
sorted! Then I find out that all my kids do
their respective laundry chores this way. So
my lessons when they were young were a bit
of a waste of time. The second picture is how
I sort the clothes. Three baskets that
equals 6 loads of laundry for the week.
Oh well. At least they wash their own clothes
and all have been since their early teens.
Do you sort your laundry before washing?
Or just put it all in together in one load?
