So is the only reason for separating color-clothes from white clothes to avoid colors from "bleeding?" Because it would be a lot more convenient to not have to split up every washload.
I thought this was the case, until somebody told me that hot water is necessary to clean certain types of clothes well, meaning lumping everything into a cold wash, colors and whites, isn't as clean. I think that's what they were saying...
I find that cold water just doesn't do the trick, not without some heavy duty detergent. I use baby detergent (I'm allergic to most anything else except All Free and Clear). Cold water would probably be just fine for jeans though. I use hot water on the socks and towels.

As long as I can say I've put clothes through the washing machine, I consider them clean, partially because I don't think they're that dirty in the first place. So what if I've worn these shorts for 5 days. They don't look dirty...
Ah, we have differing deffinitions then. Ok.
